Under The Influence II 2018
Under The Influence II , a collaboration with Zurich-based musician Sarah Palin
In 2018, Phil Hayes created and presented three small-scale residency based performance projects in the Südbühne of the Gessnerallee. Each time Phil worked in residence for three weeks and then showed the work with two performances.
The series of works reflect on Phil’s history of collaborative creation with regard to the ideas of influence and encounters. Anything can happen.
Continuing on from the work they did together for Drumspeak, a solo piece performed by Sarah for the Solotage Festival at Neubad in Lucerne, Under The Influence II developed their different approaches to creating music and words based around the idea of encounters and meetings.
Songs, Music, Drums & Guitars, Stories and questions.. People you don’t really know, too much information, She’s mean, symptons and strange superpowers.
