Throw Them Up and Let Them Sing

a film about Kurt Schwitters

Steve Beresford on piano and Adam Bohman on objects play around with Stephan Wolpe’s score for Schwitters’ poem An Anna Blume. Extract from the concert curated by Helen Petts at the Sage Gateshead on the 30th June 2012.

'Schwolpe' starts with an improvised piano solo by Steve Beresford using or not using elements suggested by Stefan Wolpe's music for Kurt Schwitter's poem 'An Anna Blume'. 

Adam Bohman later improvises on objects. He supplied a set of words for them both to say, drawn  from the English translation of the piece. He limited himself to words beginning with letters from the name ‘Kurt Merz Schwitters’.
