No matter what Theresa Stroetges does, she does it differently. Cosmic krautrock, autotuned pop, folk rock, IDM and techno rhythms aren’t pigeonholes the multi-instrumentalist can be put. Instead, she opens them up – sometimes all at once, sometimes just a few – to make the best of and reassemble them. The Golden Diskó Ship is a musical voyage whose songs, on four albums, navigate through different moods, emotional states and styles.
Marta de Pascalis makes head-spinning music. Using tape loops and analog synthesis, she creates compositions that constantly turn in circles, creating imbalances whose individual elements are layered on top of each other and yet always drift apart. In addition to numerous collaborations, the sound and installation artist has also released three solo albums, most recently Sonus Ruinae on the Berlin label Morphine. Over the course of eight pieces, she uses circular movements to create a sense of dizziness that lasts a long time.
The ensemble Zinc & Copper, founded by Robin Hayward, makes use of brass instruments in an unusual way: Microtonal tunings and unconventional playing techniques open up new perspectives on the trombone played by Hilary Jeffrey, Elena Kakaliagou’s French horn and Hayward’s tuba with music by composers such as Amir ElSaffar, Éliane Radigue and Ellen Arkbro. The trio breaks stylistic and frequently cultural boundaries in search of new sound qualities.
