The Illusion of Things Hanging Together is a set of songs composed by Margareth Kammerer and the composer-performer ensemble Les Femmes Savantes. Texts by the great Canadian poet Anne Carson, born in 1950, (Life of Towns in Plainwater, New York, 2000) are the point of departure for the composition of extended songs. By means of a complex and idiosyncratic language rhythm in her lyrical work, Carson creates inner images, moods, and emotions, which cannot be conveyed through linear narration. Her texts play with various styles and genres. Her language is set to music, stretched, intertwined, pulverized, and transformed by the composers into pure sound. Each composer has contributed her own personal artistic expression and developed one or more songs in the joint rehearsal process. The Illusion of Things Hanging Together integrates onomatopoeia, sound collage, improvisation, noise, and pop.  

 

Les Femmes Savantes takes its name from the comedy Educated Women by Molière. The composer-performer ensemble was founded in Berlin in 2005. The experienced real-time musicians say the following in reference to themselves: “Go ahead and call our music ‘feminine’ if it makes you upset not to do so.” Margareth Kammerer, the South Tyrolean guitarist and singer with the unmistakable voice, performs solo and in various formations. To date the Carson Project with Les Femmes Savantes has been performed only once before, when it was premiered in Berlin in October 2016.
