As this year’s “Artists in Residence” Bianca und Sierra Casady aka CocoRosie have curated a very special series of live shows for year’s Donaufestival in Krems (Austria) this year: The series is called “Ungewöhnliche Hochzeiten” (“Unusual weddings”) and teams up artists from different backgrounds. My favorite collaboration is Antony + Sissy Nobby, who’ve done a slow piano version of Nobby’s 2009 awesomely explicit single “Lay Me Down” and have beautifully covered Madame Gaynor’s “I will survive”, followed by Laurie Anderson and Light Asylum and Nomi Ruiz (Hercules & Love Affair, Jessica 6) and the new post Hip Hop superhero Busdriver. Here are some blurry fan videos of the performances so we who couldn’t attend at least get a certain impression. Via Nomi Ruiz’ tumblr.
