TONspur V - Duo Lautlos

“All you have to do is press the right key at the right time.” (J. S. Bach)

In the first TONspur summer, back in 2008, the audience were in the Seer´s Asitz restaurant because of a downpour shortly before the start of the concert when a completely unknown young group from the Bregenzerwald region blew the public away with their ability, humour in playing, and there unique way of interpreting old songs from years ago. In the ensuing years, they returned to the TONspur stage several times. The concert in 2010 at the reservoir was unforgettable as the fog drew in, hiding the stage from view as they played the last of many encores. “Vo Mellau bis ge Schoppornou” thrilled the audience, who didn’t mind the fog and the cold. It was with this song that they stormed from Leogang to 2nd place in the Austrian charts. The copyright owner of the hit was Philipp Lingg, the same Philipp Lingg who now returns to the TONspur stage as a member of the duo Laut:los.

Together with Christoph Mateka (violin and vocals), from Upper Austria, he interprets what pleases him, whether it be the thought of a country that he hasn’t yet visited, a hit song from years gone by, or improvised instrumental folk music 2.0. Both the musicians have no fixed running order for their show, but simply let it happen. How they feel that day, and the audience’s mood both contribute to a unique concert experience that everyone is sure to enjoy.

“A new project … interprets new songs by Philipp Lingg. Songs about mountains, hangovers, and customs officers. The songs are sung in denglish, and are about life in and outside the backwoods. Language barriers are torn down, or not allowed in the first place. Long live pleasure, love, and passion for music…” is how a local newspaper put it.
Or, as a report about their concert last year in the garden of the library in Göfis (Vorarlberg) described it: “the extraordinary natural backdrop, the twittering of birds, and the captivating music are what made this evening a legendary event! Both of the musicians understood how to motivate an audience into dialogue and singing along in a way that was very touching!”
If the weather is kind to us, this could also apply to the evening on the Asitz. The only thing that would need to be altered is replacing the twittering of birds with the bleating of sheep.
