Water is the basic instrument of the H2eau AQUAPHONIE performance. Acrylic glass bowls filled with water, equipped with hydrophones (underwater microphones) of the company “Sonar Surround” are the main components of our “water drum”. All rhythms of the performance are played live with water. The sounds and grooves produced are unique. Some of them are linked to water compositions of famous Debussy, Smetana and Rimsky Korsakov. The sound is crystall clear and transparent similar to chill out sound of Yann Tiersen (Gotan Project). Mixed with electro-, trance-, techno- or jazz-sounds our themes like “wade in the water” lead the audience to an unexpected listening experience. The highly sensitive hydrophones translate finest nuances, without any noise or feedback, and the water is making its own unique sound. Variety is ensured by our special instruments – like day to day articles and kitchen tools such as plastic bottles, whisks, shells, sand, just to name some of them. Literally anything could be used as instrument, and therefore our performance often brings a smile to everyone who first listens to the music, and then actually watches how the sound is produced. Special light effects, reflected and broken by water, create a magic mystic atmosphere. The Hydrophone was tested 2010 for the first time for the performance. The result and the possibilities are sensational. The first H2eau performance took place 1997. The first H2eau CD was published 1998. H2eau in the Internet since 01.01.2002. Winner 25. German Rock & Pop price 2007 best Tranceband Winner 25. German Rock & Pop price 2007 best experimental band.

Source from myths, fairy tales and wise sayings.
The foam-born Aphrodite, Homers sirens, Nixen, Loreley, Hans Christian Andersen – the small sea-virgin. A range of variation and a variety since thousands of years exist. Here in a example from ” Heinrich Heine” from the H2eau Water Poetry collection of water poetry.
Water poetry is also a part of the H2eau program.

More

The evening’s shadows are falling, The mist is spreading everywhere; The waters are secretly rustling, A white shape springs in the air. The mermaid steps out of the main, And besides me, she sits down; Her breasts heave, as if in pain, Under her gossamer gown. She clasps me with great passion, She holds me in a painful way; Why do you press me in such a fashion, You beautiful water-fay? « I need to embrace you strongly, And press you with such a might, I need the warmth from your body, It is far too cold to night. » The moon grows paler and paler, Low clouds stand in its way; Your eyes grow wetter and sadder, You beautiful water-fay. « My eyes are neither sad nor wet, The’re not what they seem to be, Some water drops, they’ve kept, While I was coming out of the sea. » The sea-gulls shrill entreating, The surf surges in its mad way; Your heart is wildly beating, You beautiful water-fay. « My heart is wildly pounding, It’s pounding is far too wild, ‘Cause I love you beyond telling, You lovely mortal child!
