Margit Kern – accordeon
Olaf Tzschoppe – percussion

etendis was founded in 2016 by Margit Kern and Olaf Tzschoppe. Building on an already existing repertoire with works by Magnus Lindbergh, Annette Schlünz and Georg Friedrich Haas the two musicians decided to intensify their collaboration.
Their aim is to think possibilities of the enlargement of concert structures and aesthetic perception in the forming already with by integration of visual components, the application of electronic means or the enlargement by other instrumentalists.
etendis aims at breaking categorisations open and at allowing a survey more differently of aesthetic levels. Thus new music of different cultural coinage just as “old” new music in adaption to our present will be made audible.
The concept of the etendis foundation concert in 2016 followed this thoughts. “Visual Planets” is the adaptation of the orchestra suite “the planets” of Gustav Holst. A visual interpretation of the work in form of an “intervision” was sketched for it by the media artist Jean-François Guiton.
