Clusters 8 & 9 of the online journal COLLATERAL focus on Goethe’s poem “Wandrers Nachtlied” and the numerous musical recompositions and remixes it has triggered. The starting point of both issues is the adaptation by the Belgian artistic duo Evelin Brosi & Tijl Moons. What seems to drive our fascination with Goethe’s poem, our theoretical reflections, musical recompositions, remixes and literary revisions (e.g. in concrete poetry), is the troubling antonymic tensions between rest and unrest staged in the poem.

His men threw the discus and the javelin, and practiced archery on the shore, and their horses, un-harnessed, munched idly on cress and parsley from the marsh, the covered chariots housed in their masters’ huts. Longing for their warlike leader, his warriors roamed their camp, out of the fight. (lliad, Book II)
