The Wiener Festwochen are dedicating a long night of music to the memory of Viennese musician and founder of the Editions Mego label, Peter Rehberg, who died in 2021. The artist Gisèle Vienne recalls: ‘Peter Rehberg, Isabelle Piechaczyk and I first met in January 2001, in Vienna. Following that long conversation, Peter and I went on to work together for 20 years. Isabelle Piechaczyk was always hugely supportive, regardless of the artistic format that emerged as a result. Our collaborative work encompasses twelve performances, with Peter Rehberg mainly performing live on extensive tours, nine albums, exhibitions, installations, a radio play, a book and, most recently, a film. The albums were released under the names Peter Rehberg, DACM and KTL (together with Stephen O’Malley). Peter Rehberg’s influence was huge: through the unique and inspiring work he contributed to all our collaborations, through his tremendous knowledge of music, and as an innovative and idiosyncratic label manager. In this pivotal role, he had a lasting impact on music as well as on the performing and contemporary arts. All of which made him a leading figure in the arts since the mid-1990s. His influence is set to continue for a long time to come.’
Electric Indigo kann leider krankheitsbedingt (Covid) ganz kurzfristig nicht bei 'Tribute to Peter Rehberg and Editions Mego' auftreten.
