Kafka’s “The Castle” at Deutsches Theater Berlin

It was hard work for everyone to stage Kafka’s novel “The castle” ; for director Nurkan Erpulatand his advisor Jens Hillje, the fantastic actors including Moritz Grove, Sesede Terziyan and Katharina Matz, as well as my composer-collegue Tobias Schwenke and me.  The music is twofold and consists of dark soundscapes that capture the disturbing and oppressive atmosphere of the piece and songs by the doors sung live by a children’s choir, which adds a sincere absurdity. I produced the soundscapes, recorded the accompaniment and arranged the songs together with Tobias.
