25. 3. Otto Mötö in Frankfurt/Live


No, sorry, Mr. Martti Mauri is still peacefully resting in his motor-boat-shaped coffin on Jyväskylä’s cemetary, Finland. But the only person alive to document on his work and music will do this at famous “Glosanostra’s Cantina”, in the Dreikönigskeller Frankfurt.

The lecture highlights on Mauri’s life and work in sound and images. Contemporary witnesses are introduced, hitherto unknown interviews presented and of course, a lot of motor music will be played.
