Fågelle creates music where layers of noise meet pop melodies in an exploration of rhythms and the subject of power. With pedals, synthesizers and samplers, she dives into the sounds, experimenting until she finds what will come together with poetry to create a compelling song in the middle ground between sound art and pop.
Fågelle (SWE / Bengans Records)
"Gebändigt von solch akustischer Ehrlichkeit bleibt das Publikum die gesamte Dauer dieser makellosen Vorstellung über erstarrt, wie hypnotisiert." David Lindengrün, The Message, Austria
Her sound world consists of everything from field recordings from the Moscow subway to roaring guitars and tormented synthesizers.
In collaboration with the producer Henryk Lipp (Blue for Two, Anna von Hausswolff, Union Carbide) the ideas are grown into sound worlds, pop songs, storm clouds. From the smallest text fragments to the rolling in of the biggest thunder. With lyrics in Swedish about our current times in micro and macro-perspective and about power and powerlessness. Her music has been described as “a soft punch in the face”.
Fågelle has performed at different venues and festivals in Europe, among others at Heroines of Sound in Berlin, Performing Sound Festival in Salzburg, Kolonia Artystów in Gdansk, Woman SRSLY in London, Klangfestival in Linz, Atomino in Chemnitz and Koloni in Gothenburg.
theclosing (AT / Anette Records / Wolkenvorhang)
theclosing was started in 2004 in Vienna as a project at the intersection of music and visual art, improvisation and sound design, experimentation and careful arrangements. Having released an EP and two successive albums - 2012’s »theclosing« on Circle Into Square and Fake Four Inc. and 2017’s »dents« on FilthyBroke Recordings -, their third LP »MATTER« for the Berlin-based Anette Records is the first by Daniela Palma Caetano Auer and Alexander Hengl entirely as duo. Mixing analogue and digital sources, sheer noise and harmony, distant sounding snippets from everyday life and processed vocals, »MATTER« further refines theclosing’s experimental sound palette.
Stylistically, theclosing draw on noise, drone, ambient and experimental recording techniques, but also show a knack for off-kilter hip hop beats and the occasional techno groove. It is a mixture the two can successfully translate to a live situation, as 2015’s »Live at Beatmaker Sessions« has already proven. theclosing have played multiple shows with noise rap pioneers Dälek, shared the stage with artists like Zavoloka, Gonjasufi, Buriers, Jel or Cavanaugh (Open Mike Eagle & Serengeti) and have presented their immersive, audio-visual live shows at experimental and underground festivals like Unsafe+Sounds (Austria) or Les Digitales (Switzerland).
