I’m once again hosting a discussion organised by Nordic Culture Point in Helsinki, live stream in English:
”Toechter is a new trio from Copenhagen and Berlin – all-female, all-strings – playing the violin, viola and cello.
With a background in classical music, they explore both the percussive and lyrical sides of their instruments, which they mix with electronics and vocal textures into an exciting whole. Together, they create their own language and genre mix, which combines electronic beats and unusual bowing techniques and samples. The result is an electronic soundscape with a moving and human touch. The members of Toechter are Lisa Marie Vogel, Katrine Grarup Elbo and Marie-Claire Schlameus.”
Update: The discussion is still available via the FB event.
Me and Marie-Claire Schlameus in the studio, the other two members of Toechter were present online.
