In the first part of the concert, complex electronic sounds based on Julius Holtz's album Elementarklang will be transferred into a conventional notation font. The score, redesigned by Andreas F. Staffel for piano, toypiano and live electronics, will be premiered before the break. Based on the material of the CD, the inclusion of keyboard instruments creates completely new, "human" interpretational scope.

In the second part, compositions by Andreas F. Staffel, such as the piano piece "Fluctuations" and works from his CD "Treibgut" by Julius Holtz, will be designed and modified in an electronic remix. The resulting sound mutations leave the outgoing basic structure of the pieces untouched. The resulting tonal fusion of individual layers with beats and sounds becomes a unique listening experience. The concept of translation and transmission shows how two completely different compositional approaches can inspire each other and complement each other in a wonderful way. The act of translating foreign material becomes an independent artistic work.

Following the Double Concerto, there will be a joint improvisation by LouLou and ad lib for the first time.
