"We like to create distinctive worlds for every song we write. In this way, I think songwriting is akin to architecture — each note intentionally builds on the last to construct a cohesive piece. The music we write is personal, always based on ~true events~. We want to take our audiences on the journey with us through these experiences, so they can see what we we’re seeing and feel what we were feeling."
MARTHA SCOTT BURTON
TEEN MUSIC INSIDER
"We’ve been creating together since we were kids. Imagination has always been a huge part of our identities: we’ve always created videos, cartoons, stories, songs, and plays in our living room as a means of understanding the world around us... As DELUNE, we’ve found solace in music in particular as a way of communicating beyond spoken language – 'when words fail, music speaks.' (Hans Christian Andersen)"
"Regentrude of the Eastworld" is a rethinking of a modern reading of the fairytale by German writer Theodor Storm. A fantastic story about climate change tells about a world where there is no more rain: Regentrude fell asleep, the Fireman rules the earth. And only a young girl can wake her... Literary, philosophical, and sci-fi works are interwoven in the canvas of this production."
Vom Flüstern zum Singen
"For many children, singing in a choir is not a particularly exciting idea. The situation is completely different for the over 30 children currently living in a refugee shelter : they are happy to be able to go to the choir rehearsal three times a week. Three times two hours that are not about the memories of war and displacement, the endless waiting in the gym and the many different languages spoken here. Because the Hutto Project speaks only one language that everyone understands: music."
