With homemade instruments like some Yuri Landmann versions (12-string table top & steel-on-foam), electrix repeater, samples & field recordings and voice she creates sonic song-landscapes. Witnessing the planets destruction and self empowerment is the main source of her music adventures. Last year these made her recording ice&snow, screwing together passion fruits, studying the relation of tomatoes to theories of Einstein, examining cooking recipes of E.Presley…
After learning flute, Xylophone and Lyra in the school orchestra I learned classical guitar in my teens and started singing in theatre. Later during my studies in Gießen (what is it?) – where I worked on experimental radio, did music performance theatre in my collective and made an album with my Icelandic band project.
Мy Professor Heiner Goebbels often opened doors to work with crazy professionals like the contemporary music ensemble musikfabrik Köln or the Ensemble Modern who got me interested in contemporary classical music by directing scenic concerts for them. And especially since I found myself allowed to do whatever sonically happens when studying with Felix Kubin – the sonic thing got wheels of freedom and strolls beside me, forming blooming outcomes from time to time.
With quite some fuel I concentrate on my solo-project ERA GELDES at the moment.
