Set 2: MASUAL
Alex Nowitz – voice & gesture-controlled live electronics (strophonion)
Sukandar Kartadinata – electric guitar & electronics
Matthias Bauer – double bass
trio MASUAL presents a fascinatingly outlandish and, even though, a
well-balanced set of what they
call Freeimprovisedelectroaousticnoisevoice Compositions. With
anxiety-free ease, they smoothly bridge the analogue sphere of
sounds from voice, guitar and double bass with highly manipulated and
electronic sounds. The bewitching aesthetics of the visual and sonic
results of this unparalleled presentation is beautiful, but also seems
highly unpredictable. The reason for this is Matthias’ virtuosic double
bass playing while, at the same time, both Alex (‘strophonion’) and
Sukandar (‘augmented guitar system’) play unique, custom-built (by the
last-mentioned!), motion and gesture-controlled live electronics all of
which allow the extension of their original instruments, the voice and
the guitar, embarking to reach out for astro-like soundscapes.
