duo started by Heidrun Schramm and JD Zazie in 2017, based on actual train sounds taken from their personal field recording’s archive.
Fascinated by these sounds, that accompany their daily life, the duo plays with train noises, inner resonances, sonic landmarks, signals, social sounds and train station’s acoustic qualities. “Railroad Concrète” constantly develops the collected sound material in its compositions and sound installations, where the sound sources range from the concrete to the abstract, in perfect symbiosis.
The project has been presented in Belgium and in Germany and has been part Q-O2 art-residency program in 2018.
Cytokinins (CK) are a class of plant growth substances (phytohormones) that promote cell division, or cytokinesis, in plant roots and shoots.(Wikipedia)
The unit was formed in Stuttgart by composer and electronics expert Remmy Canedo (Chile) and vocalist Kanae Mizobuchi(Japan). They create a new sound space in addition to programmed electronics for the improvised voice performance (sometimes accompanied by objects and visual elements). In addition, each performance is recorded and remixed to be preserved and further grown. This exciting music will be an effective growth hormone for your ears.
