With this money we can realize our project of the sound picture postcard including studio, production and GEMA-duties.
As a trio (piano / violin / vocals) in the salon style of the 1920s, we have now (re)discovered the right sound carrier: the sound picture postcard - an invention from the beginning of the 20th century!
On this postcard a song is imprinted - like on a vinyl single - so that you can play it on a record player.
... and the rest of our new album you will find exclusively and modern at MonokelPop-Entertainment as download version.
...and here some more information about the "Krause family":
Berlin 1928: Retired liquor manufacturer director Alois Krause has already seen better times. His company is broke, his wife has run away from him and the cuckoo is stuck under the furniture. But Krause can't be kept down. Together with his faithful servant Rudolph and the Polish maid Fräulein Emilia, he keeps his head above water with little trickery. The "Five o'clock tea" is celebrated every week in the Villa Krause. While the guests are entertained with musical cabinet pieces and cultural recitations, the director, with the energetic support of his servant Rudolph, sets off in search of a new and solvent lady of the heart. Meanwhile, Miss Emilia offers a collection of the finest delicacies for sale in her vendor's tray, serves the guests appetizers and uses the hour's favour for small thievings to relax the monetary situation at Krause.
The Berlin SalonTrio Malheur presents a musical melange of cabaret chansons by Rudolf Nelson, Friedrich Holländer, Kurt Weill & Co. and classical salon pieces by Arturo Toscanini, Vitorio Monti and Astor Piazzola with bold wit and charming play. Larded with texts by Paolo Montegaza, Kurt Tucholsky and Joachim Ringelnatz, an evening in the style of the salon culture of the 1920s awaits you.
Mr. Director Alois Krause: Daniel Malheur / Singing
Diener Rudolph: Peter André Rodekuhr / Piano & Vocals
Miss Emilia Nowacka: Agata Gromek / Violin & Vocals
It is important to us to remember the music cabaret culture of the 1920s. It contains the inexhaustible wealth of witty wit and free thinking of the time of the Weimar Republic's awakening. With the advent of National Socialism, this culture was almost completely extinguished, and then this level was hardly reached again, at least in Germany.
A new, young generation is about to discover these "Wild 20s". Our aim is to show that besides the KAKTUS and VERONIKA there are also other musical cabaret pearls to be discovered.
...so that these wonderful hits and chansons are not forgotten. Maybe also to get into the possession of an extraordinarily beautiful and exclusive "sound object" ...and of course so that we can give our audience something beautiful to take along after a concert evening.
We will go to the studio in November to record our program. If the crowdfunding is successful, we will use the money for the studio costs, for the postproduction, as well as for the costs in the pressing plant and GEMA. An edition of 500 copies is planned. If we skip our funding target, we will use it to finance a video production for advertising purposes in order to convince organizers of the "Krause family" for the 2020s.
Daniel Malheur: Smart, apart, the salon tenor comes in its own way - with its very own performance of the 1920s pop art: stylish accessories, breathtaking changes of wardrobe and spontaneous-comical interaction - and last but not least its warm tenor - make up the charm of an evening with Monsieur MonokelPop - far away from the "20s mainstream".
Peter André Rodekuhr: The pianist and composer has made a name for himself in Berlin as an accompanist to various chansonniers and chansons. In the SalonTrio Malheur he is the musical director and arranger responsible for the special sound of the ensemble.
Agata Gromek: The classical violinist captivates with her empathic playing. Whether in the orchestra, as a soloist or in the SalonTrio Malheur, her bow stroke sensitively flatters the hearts of your audience.
