„In 2010 Gueule Populaire originally started out as a ‚classic‘ improvised music group in the Viennese tradition. Like many of those, over the years of constant collaboration, we also slowly developed the need for an extension of material, which at the beginning manifested in the idea of the compositional emancipation and integration of movement into our practice.
What first was just an emphasis of natural gestures evolving while playing the instruments turned into a general awareness and focus on the body and its extension, the environment. We continued to work with subliminal body language, flicker movement and different room positionings that result in altered room acoustics.
Following the path of expansion we also started to weave in other theatrical elements (light-design, costumes, props) and explored and integrated altered mental/structural states like static-installational or durational approaches into our performances, further opening up new dimensions of experience.
Gueule Populaire is Margaret Unknown (different audiosetups ranging from prepared guitar, synthesizer, DIY electronics, woodwinds, percussion, feedback systems, voice) and Rosi Rehformen (cello, voice).“

„Es hat schon bei einem blauen Affen angefangen. Das Herz liegt im Herzen des obersten Körperteils. Der Tonhauer hat sich ein Schwein geschweißt.

Skarekrau Radio. MAHTPA. Burlin Mud.“
