New music for zither and clarinet

Zicla is a project by duo Lan Cao (VN) – Gregor Siedl (AT) with electro-acoustic compositions and composed improvisations for prepared zither, clarinet and electronics.

Clarinet and zither are commonly known for folk music across the globe. Using these two instruments in a new syntax evokes a familiar and at the same time foreign environment.

The clarinet’s composed pitch and noise structures interweave with particular sounds from the extended zither creating an unusual imaginary space, introspective moods, abstract microtonal dialogues and intriguing sound textures.


GO ASK ALICE ist ein 2015 formiertes Trio aus Wien, Basel und Luzern.
Die drei jungen MusikerInnen Anna Hirsch (voc, electronics), Judith Schwarz (drums) und Jul Dillier (piano) machen ihren Namen zum Programm und nehmen die improvisierte Musik als grossen Spielplatz in Beschlag.
Aus pulsierenden Klangwogen lassen sie groovende Geflechte erwachsen, hinter elektrisch knisternden Soundlandschaften schimmert plötzlich ein Kinderlied hervor.

Das Wechselspiel zwischen akustischen und elektronischen Klängen prägt dabei ihren Sound. Loops des zuvor improvisierten Materials lassen die Band in den Dialog mit sich selber treten und erzeugen eine eigene Art von Interplay und Performance.

Takkiduda records various sounds in real time, and make music by overlapping sounds in improvisation from Japan.
We mix Music, Image projection and Dance improvised.
We use voice, electric guitar, synthesizer, laptop, keyboard harmonica, small musical instruments, toy, enviromental sounds from our life and nature, and more.
Our performances are different each time we are on stage. We play what we feel in the moment led by our instincts, allowing the sounds to layer and harmonize.
Our hope is to have you sit back and experience the sounds naturally turning into music.


John Bold

Electronics paint a 21st century still-life.
Browsing through ambiences in an interpassive state of sacred chanting.
Simultaneously attracted and disgusted by pop-nihilism.
Somewhere in a hot-cold delirium of accelerationist death-driven obscenity and virginal resistance.
Unsure whether we can transcend or just decay.
Perhaps there will be a decision in the end.
