Merzouga / Janko Hanushevsky & Eva Poepplein

Merzouga is a spot in the Sahara where Cologne-based computer-musician Eva Poepplein and electric-bassist Janko Hanushevsky encountered the roaring silence of camel-flies and sand trickling down the dunes. Led by an abiding curiosity they traveled to India, Lao, Cambodia, Vietnam, Morocco, Ukraine, Brazil and Greenland, where they made extensive field-recordings and sound-research.

As a duo they produce sound compositions and installations, radio plays and radio docus, play and compose music for radio, film and theater. Concerts, sound installations and premiere performances at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Deutschlandfunk Kammermusiksaal, Humboldt Forum Berlin, Museum Schnütgen, HAU Berlin, Volkstheater Munich.
