There must be something, a thread, that runs through everything you make. Says a person who knows. Says the person who came up with the Monster Mutations thing at Mahalla. With this intoxicating program, outrageously morphing in all directions, the energetic thread runs from drumroll to guitar wall, from man-machine to jazz excess, on to bass hypnosis and, of course, a good dose of intensity.
Word should have gotten around that the person behind Monster Mutations has always trusted their animal instincts and proven their incorruptible taste. It’s time to get your appetites satisfied, and let your animal body move, with each and every monstrous mutation.
Their name does not matter. It may appear somewhere at the very end. The hundreds or rather thousands of legendary concert evenings she has organized in the Loft, the Metropol, the Tempodrom and elsewhere – water under the bridge. What counts here and now is the music. What counts are the monster mutations of: Caspar Brötzmann. Frank Bretschneider. Gropper, Henkelhausen, Lichtenberger. hÄK / Danzeisen. Moderna. Maya Wada. Tina Zimmermann. Ismael Zouaoui. Ara.
Behind all these mutations, the one thread running through them, is the person who made it all up. The one who stands for a specific energy like no other – especially when it’s wild but somehow remains together: Mahalla’s Monster Mutations, made up by Monika Döring.
