Gordan & Skultura at ausland / Saturday, 11.5.2024

Gordan combine traditional Serbian singing with abstraction, energy and minimalism. Their music is marked by radical reductionism, seemingly endless ascension and a passion for experiments.

The Serbian singer Svetlana Spajić is an internationally recognized and acclaimed artist. She has mastered the complex singing styles of Balkan music in all its local forms like no other contemporary singer. Guido Möbius plays bass and various electronic sound generators.

Additionally he uses guitar amps, microphones and effects to provoke feedback which either harmonize or are juxtaposed with the song. It is a dialogue between sound and noise which is accentuated or fragmented by means of Andi Stecher’s expressive drumming. Together the trio form a dynamic body of sound. Gordan will present their new album on this night, out on Glitterbeat on May 10th 2024.

Skulptura, the new album by the widely praised American double bassist and composer Nick Dunston, was released in September 2023. The album gathers wild collages of field recordings, spoken word, dense sound textures, dark drones, feverish percussion and much more. Implementing the intensity of this uncompromising production in a live set is a challenge, one that the band of the same name does not shy away from. Skultura are Cansu Tanrıkulu (voice, electronics), Liz Kosack (synthesizer), Eldar Tsalikov (clarinet, saxophone), Mariá Portugal (drums) and Nick Dunston on bass.
