Welcome to Cataract of Dreams

Cataract of Dreams is the joint venture of Cuculum and Kathrina s. East.
We publish mainly music, drawings and German-language texts.

This homepage aims to be as complete a documentation of our work as possible. It is separated into three sections, each coming with a different color scheme:

  • In the yellow central section you can find common information as well as our music.
  • In the black section, which is also the homepage of Cuculum, you can find drawings and exhibitions.
  • In the blue section, which is also the homepage of Kathrina s. East, you can find texts (German only) as well as some photography.

On this main page we additionally inform you about the projects we are currently working on.

Spiegelbilder - Exhibition

Spiegelbilder

This autumn, Cuculum will have an exhibition at the Kulturhalle Tübingen.
The exhibition, which is called Spiegelbilder (Mirror Images), presents a collection of surreal portrait drawings, each of which highlights a particularity of human character and behavior. The black and white ink drawings are confronted with their large colored print versions.
The viewer is invited to take the perspective of the original drawings, to see fragments of himself in a slightly distorting and exposing mirror. The resulting question of whether what is seen should be kept, as part of one’s own identity, or changed is thereby provoked by the content and presentation of the artworks.

Spiegelbilder will be on view from 29.10.2021 to 27.11.2021 at Nonnengasse 19 in Tübingen.
The opening hours are Tuesday to Friday 14:00-19:00 as well as Saturday 11:00-18:00.
We would be very happy to welcome you.
You can find more details on our German events page.

Coversongs

To get a finished piece of music it is not enough to write and play it.
Recording, mixing, and mastering have to be done as well. In 2020 we decided that we want to do this ourselves, to be less dependent on other people or the amount of money we are able to spend on professionals. As a consequence, we began with covering some simple and copyright-free songs to train our recording and editing skills. The results can be found here.

Nachtschwärmers Abendlied (Music)

‘Nachtschwärmers Abendlied’ is a short, atmospherical arrangement based on the eponymous poem by Kathrina. Right now it is only a composition, but we plan on recording and producing it ourself in autumn 2021.
Until then we provide two small snippets to get a glimpse on it. So far it is a Midi-File, so all Sounds are auto-generated and will be replaced later on.
