13 new interpretations of Viennese doodles I got to know in the 1990ties while workin on the film “Orvuse on Oanwe – Servus in Wien” about Vienna’s tootlers. The three Viennese folk singers Trude Mally, Poldi Debeljak and Luise Wagner were the last ones of their kind who had mastered the almost forgotten art of “tootling”, a Viennese version of alpine yodeling. These new interpretations of the traditionals were made within the past 15 years, covering natural sounds, electronics, jazz, world and chamber music.
