Claudia Cervenca & Wolfgang Fuchs

Claudia Cervenca

Die aus Rumänien und in Wien lebende Vokalistin und Performance Künstlerin experimentiert mit den Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten ihrer Stimme. Sie liebt das Reduzierte, Minimalistische,
Ursprüngliche, Raue, Ungeschliffene, aber auch das Extreme, Brachiale, Geräuschlastige. In der freien Improvisation tritt sie in spontan zusammengesetzten Besetzungen, die sie als ständige Herausforderung und Inspirationsquelle betrachtet auf, aber auch in länger bestehenden Formationen, die sich der Verfeinerung des gemeinsamen Klangspektrums verpflichtet sehen. Sie ist Mitgründerin der Veranstaltungsreihen Freispiel und Fermata, die Improvisation als Ausdrucksmittel im Vordergrund stellen und eine Interaktion verschiedener Kunstsparten unterstützen.

Lindvall & Myhr & Gismervik

Johan Lindvall – synth
Adrian Fiskum Myhr – electric bass
Jan Martin Gismervik – drums

Lindvall/Myhr/Gismervik play free improvised electronic music with a rhythmic approach. They are sparse with their vocabulary, but the music is always changing into new directions. The three musicians either tries to blend into the others sounds to make the trio sound like one instrument or tries to make interesting contrasts in the soundscape. Even though the line-up is traditional, the music sounds very new.

Will Guthrie

Rinus van Alebeek

“The work has been assembled from Rinus’ collection of tapes and is another fascinating collage of audio elements assembled according to a dream-like logic; one element follows another with no apparent attempt to make sense on a conventional level, or even to create specific sonic correspondences. I always sense that Rinus van Alebeek has little in common with “formal” composers, and that in a test scenario a proper electro-acoustic musician like Pierre Henry or Bernard Parmegiani would have come up with something entirely different, even if given the exact same set of materials to work from. I suspect that their versions would have been stiffer, more structured, more classical; much as I love them, composers from the French school of Musique Concrète are always trying to tell us something, and quite often the messages turn out to be quite lofty instances of philosophy or high-minded intellectual elaborations.

Instead of telling us something, it always seems to me that Rinus is trying to find out things, exploring or discovering an aspect of the world which he regards as a mystery, and not proceeding with any foregone conclusions in mind. This sense comes over very strongly on the present tape, whose strange semi-narrative and peripatetic nature slowly uncovers unseen and unheard things, and manages to leave them intact and alive, rather than immediately inserting them into the killing-jar, like captured butterflies seized with tweezers.”
(Ed Pinsent)

unii

Unii is a singer, songwriter, electronic music composer (ambient, avant-garde pop) from Northern island of Sapporo city, Hokkaido, Japan. Her soft yet powerful voice mixed with electronic sound invites you to the artistic world of hers. Unii has been performing live not only in Japan but overseas in Europe and Asia, such as Singapore, Vietnam and China. Her music is accepted positively borderless-ly and her style is described as post Bjork that it floats us into dream-like soundscape. Unii released her first album from independent label Elegant Disc “New world, sea and your eyes” (2011) which she did all the creation work from recording to songwriting. The second album “Long scene, before sunset” was released from her own label Nothernlights in 2014. New album will out this year.Unii’s creation is fresh and she is pioneering her own style of music.

Japan-based Unii is a sound artist and singer-songwriter. Her live performances evoke an awkwardly beautiful and elegant soundscape that brings into existence a slowed-down universe of whispery singspeak, delicate coos, multitracked echoes, reconstituted field recordings, digital clicks and blips, tempered noise and unorthodox beats.

desperate to amuse

der soundtrack zum rauschen im kopf: songs – schwarzweiß und langsam

2005
anfangs singer songwriter, später eine band, improvisation, theater und filmmusik, anderes, danach mutiert und zwischen alle stühle gesetzt
2015

verspielt, melodisch, melancholisch, depressiv, verstörend, episch, zeitweise noisig und doch detailverliebt trifft es alles nicht immer und stimmt doch.
