The Dreams of Nebuchadnezzar
by Jesse Krause
Gerauschbiest - Winnipeg, MB
V.4 - CCFM Pauline-Boutal Hall 
Haunted by a series of nightmares, we find King Nebuchadnezzar seeking a mystic to interpret his visions. Through harmonized chant, choral arias and dynamic set pieces, the show takes the audience on a journey through an apocalyptic dreamland in an attempt to simultaneously revel in, and make sense of, the absurd. The Riel Gentlemen's Choir (from Nuit Blanche's Pollination Ceremony) appears as a thespian chorus, providing a brutalist but serene musical counterpart to the soaring vocal harmonies and uncanny instrumentation of Geraüschbiest.

The Dreams of Nebuchadnezzar

Gerauschbiest—CCFM Pauline-Boutal Hall

I am so disappointed…

…that this show only lasted 45 minutes. I was so taken by this spectacle that I could have watched it all day.

Recently, I came upon a German folk, darkwave band called Faun and I instantly fell in love with them. A big part of it is the instruments, which deviates greatly from the ubiquitous bands, include appearances by the hurdy-gurdy, bagpipes, cittern, nyckelharpa, and many others. As soon as entered the venue, I saw Gerauschbiest’s odd assortment of instruments and I was immediately intrigued. Then the fun started with a combination of ethereal music, moody visuals and transcendent movement.

Give me more!
