New form of #musicDistribution and #experimental music concerts; seen at Swarovski 'FM Riese' Music Festival (22 - 24 November 2012)
From 22 to 24 November 2012, Swarovski Kristallwelten invites to the concert series 'FM Riese' Forward Music Festival in Wattens, Tyrol in Austria. The festival is dedicated to the exploration of music of the 21st century, the mix of contemporary classical music with dancefloor, pop and the use of analogue and digital technologies. From experimental music by Soap&Skin (aka Anja Plaschg from Austria) over the Berlin based Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble (perform on 2 August 2012 for the first time in US at the Lincoln Center in New York) to Rabbit Rabbit by Carla Kihlstedt (voice, violin) and Matthias Bossi (voice, drums, keyboard...) who have already collaborated with musicians like Tom Waits, Blixa Bargeld or Fred Frith.
Rabbit Rabbit is also the name of Carla Kihlstedt and Matthias Bossi's own radio channel where the duo has developed a new form to sell music. Since February 2012, Rabbit Rabbit Radio presents each month a new song together with photos, films and words that deliver background information about the production process. Subscribers can listen and view the creative output on rabbitrabbitradio.com.

"Rabbit Rabbit comes from a tradition in New England, inherited from Old England, that if "rabbit rabbit" is the first thing to cross your lips on the first morning of each month, you and yours will jump into the future with good fortune and a renewed sense of possibility. Rabbit Rabbit Radio is our musical manifestation of this monthly mantra." is the name for the digital music channel 'Rabbit Rabbit Radio' explained on rabbitrabbitradio.com.
