Sailor Tune

schrödingers cats

Sound-Performance Music & Sound Theatre & Performance

Meow meow I am a cat, not a dog or a rat. Meow meow we are cats, and that is that. No deep meanings, truth or facts. madcatlady, 2012

I feel like I spend too much time on the internet TheCapelessCrusader, 2017

Cats are quite mundane. Cats are pop! The internet is stuffed with them. Cats made both quantum physician Erwin Schrödinger as well as musical theatre composer Andrew Lloyd Webber equally famous. The Sailor Tune group devotes their narrative to these creatures that are so loved and so hated at the same time. The artists invite us into a sound space in which the deepest frequencies of a purr resonate. Based on those tones, they take us on a journey that leads us from the world-famous “Schrödinger’s cat” to the internet’s meme culture.


Sailor Tune is a performative alter ego working with affirmation, sound, and pop appropriation. Equipped with jack plug cables, faders, and samples, Sailor Tune fights for speculative sensual experiences and acoustic phenomena. Initiated at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies Gießen, now based in North Rhine-Westphalia. Sailor Tune on instagram
