Welcome to the website of Vindobonese composer and philosopher Simone Stefanie Klein. The aural and written fractions and kind of rehearsal recordings presented here are a foretaste for the real thing to happen some day. So far, Composing Philosophy in a Different Key simply means
relying on insights of female philosophers, including also relevant works of female poets, mystics, composers, and artists
interweaving or contrasting these insights with my own ones
putting together these precious pieces in meaningful contexts (in this broad sense I'm a „composer“)
converting the results of these efforts rather in catchy songs ready to sing and play than in awkward treatises ready for press (therefore coined Aural Philosophy)
cooperation with various other artists and – scheduled for the nearer future - performing multimedia shows (thus Performing Philosophy)
Most of the research work, editing, song & lyrics writing, including musical instrument design is done with the help of a digital universal tool. Even the music you finally can listen to on this website is – for the time being - played by a VIRTUAL band which I call The Ghosts in the Machine. Wishing all this will become REAL some day, I invite everyone interested in the above to contact me.
It isn't where you come from, it is where you are going that counts. Ella Fitzgerald
