Kapsel, the magazine for Chinese science fiction literature, proudly presents “Träume”. This very special issue contains four positive visions of the future by the renowned Science fiction writers Baoshu, Anja Kümmel, Tim Holland and Anna Wu. Two exciting new musical artists have produced a soundtrack for two of the works. Berlin based psychedelic rock band Kadavar have created an accompanying piece that captures the epic depth of Baoshu’s virtual love story through time and space. Whilst Ella Zwietnig has translated the density of Anja Kümmel’s plot into ever changing ambient soundscapes. With narration by Berlin based actors Niklas Wetzel (Baoshu) and Pia-Micaela Barucki (Anja Kümmel).
