On 2 June 2003, at the 7th ADEvantgarde Festival in Munich during the course of the project "Le Lied, mon amour," a new Lied composition by Jan Müller-Wieland entitled "Fallsucht" (Epilepsy) based on an aphorism of Micaela von Marcard (Thomas Bauer, baritone; Moritz Eggert, piano) received its world premiere. Further performances will be taking place in Winterthur (24.10.2003), Lyon (21/22.01.2004) and Graz (Spring 2004).

Micaela von Marcard's text "Epilepsy" is as follows:

"Earth quakes.

Do feet stick?

What's the big idea?

I'm freezing.

Earth pulls!

So

cool. It's burning.

Foolish..."
