Geräuschbiest presents: David and Jonathan
Geräuschbiest is back with new instruments, new music, and new collaborations.

David and Jonathan, a new work by Jesse Krause. Based on a text from the first book of Samuel, is a story of friendship in the face of adversity.  Giants will be slain, tears will be shed, large exotic instruments will be struck, and of course, there will be singing of every kind.  Featured in the work are:
Antiphony - Winnipeg a cappella ensembleof some of the city's finest singers. 
Riel Gentlemen's Choir - the burly sound of Manitoban beards on denim.
Geräuschbiest - musicians/explorers/brothers Thomas Krause and Jesse Krause bring together avant-guarde chant and new instruments, built anew for every performance.
