from the release announcement:
‘Voutchkova/Thieke/Carroll make tactile, kinetic, luminous acoustic music; focused on aspects of timbre, tuning, and auditory/psycho-acoustic phenomena. Their debut album on Berlin’s Sound Anatomy label ”As Found” captures Voutchkova/Thieke/Carroll navigating with principled uncertainty between acoustic and electrical, discrete and continuous, unity and disparity.
The trio mines the interstice of all three permutational duos (Voutchkova/Thieke, Thieke/Carroll, Voutchkova/Carroll) of which exist as distinct performing entities; together in this trio they extend a common aesthetic of timbral and gestural ambiguity.
All three musicians live in Berlin where they are very active members of the city’s extraordinarily busy and creative improvising and post-echtzeitmusik scenes.’bandcamp - cd bandcamp - download
