(live, album release)

Elisabeth Klinck is a violinist, composer and performer from Ghent. From a background in classical music she bridges the gap to the world of experimental electro-acoustic music. She creates emotional soundscapes with soft prolonged tones, hypnotising patterns, extended violin techniques, field recordings and free improv, searching for a sense of timelessness. In recent years she has collaborated with Miet Warlop, Sarah Davachi, Ben Bertrand and Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe, among others. In April 2023 she releases her solo debut album on the Hallow Ground label (known from a.o. Kali Malone and FujiIIIIIIIIIIta). The album was created and recorded in an abandoned village in the Spanish Pyrenees, together with musical partners Oscar Claus. The environment inspired then to silenced, collage-like compositions where time and space can roam freely.


(live AV)

From the American West Coast electronica composer and vocalist Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith has built up a ten-year oeuvre. Armed with a Buchla modular synth and inspired by new age, zen philosophy and early electronic music - she worked with no other than Suzanne Ciani - she has become a true phenomenon in the contemporary alternative music. Her new album Let’s Turn It Into Sound was released late summer on Ghostly International. It is her most poppy and uptempo work yet. Baroque compositions swarm with bizarre vocal melodies, abrupt rhythm changes and extravagant details. An amusing and slightly psychedelic avant-pop trip reflected by the excessively coloured artwork.
