Me Succeeds – Beauty Comes From Strange Places (Commissioned Work)
For this commissioned work fashion design innovators of "University of Applied Science Bielefeld" and experimental pop duo Me Succeeds teamed up to curate a unique live experience of a fashion show. Composing the soundtrack Mona Steinwidder and Lorin Strohm adapted the moods and design of each collection in order to generate a modular self-contained live set. The vision was to break free the rules of a classic fashion walk vibe and end up remixing the show and the proposition of each collection: emotional fragments in combination with a strong, energetic rhythm section – consistently blurring the lines between art, technology and wildly experimental, boundary-pushing fashion design.

Iron Curtis – Mt Gordon (Me Succeeds The Drama of Mt Gordon Remix)
Iron Curtis – Mt Gordon (The Drama of Mt Gordon Remix)
In this case the individual bits and pieces are greater than just one sum. After Johannes Paluka aka Iron Curtis has been creating several remixes for Hamburg experimental pop duo Me Succeeds, now Mona Steinwidder und Lorin Strohm turned it the other way around and reworked the track »Mt Gordon« of the Berlin based dj and producer. The progress started in the summer of 2018 and by improvising and adding more and more layers to the original stems they ended up with loads of pretty interesting material. Mona und Lorin decided to open up the one remix widely and to let it tell its very own dramatic story of »Mt Gordon«. With five possibly connected directions of the origin track the remixes are built on the precept of classical drama waiting for the climax and the inevitable ranting end. Still every part stands independently and the five tracks vary between clean and minimal soundscape to warmly loaded vocal tunes and pushing dark break beats.
