tomažin / kutin / grom / schellander

Irena Z. Tomažin - voice
Samo Kutin - hurdy gurdy
Tomaž Grom - double bass
Matija Schellander - electronics

The featured quartet has sprung forth from the threads and bonds that were being woven between the Austrian and Slovenian improvised music scenes for over a decade. Double bass player Tomaž Grom, vocalist Irena Z. Tomažin, Samo Kutin on the hurdy gurdy and Matija  Schellander on electronic devices have performed together multiple times in different combinations during various creative stages in their careers. Improvisation is always the encounter of different musical expressions, their clash, their conjunction. Woven into it are a searching, oppositions and misunderstandings, both on the individual and collective level. The brittle and disembodied nature of the collective organism is what at the same time makes for the tension that encircles the music and that the featured quartet grasps splendidly to produce a collective sound and noise whose dynamic range spans across electronic sounds and noise, the bodily nature of the voice, the acoustic sound of the double bass and an altered hurdy gurdy. Together they form a uniform and intensive textural body of sound that allows them to engage in a stretching of the potential of their individual instruments.
