Tony Cokes for Urbane Künste Ruhr on Zollverein: A multimedia installation with eleven stops – and a craft on the musical scene of the Ruhr.
Music is not just about sound. When you are looking for someone who combines music, or more precisely pop music, with as much of the world as you can, you end up with Tony Cokes. Born in Virgina in 1956, the American is a kind of art DJ: he mixes excerpts of old and new films with interviews and texts, poetic, theoretical, journalistic. There is music for that. Sometimes. Or noises.
