They transcend the limits of the human voice and work with every sound that the throat can bring forth. They combine zest for experiment, musicality and skilful songwriting with poetry: Amy X Neuburg, Sainkho Namtchylak and Iva Bittová push the limits of sound and genre.
American singer, poet and entertainer Amy X Neuburg makes her first European appearance at the poesiefestival berlin. She accompanies her four-octave voice with live electronics, loops and electronic drums. Her music is experimental but its product is always humorous and very entertaining.
Iva Bittová works with so-called "extended vocal techniques" – she uses her voice in ways which go well beyond the ken of traditional Western music. Her sound is invigorating, penetrating and also soothing; it is a mixture of the music of the Old World together with the sensibilities of New Music. The violin is coupled with vocal lines, pervaded by the spirit and language of Czech, Slovak and Moravian folk music.
The tuvinian Singer, Poet and Performer Sainkho Namtchylak combines the music and singingstyle of her southsibirian homeland with Jazz and Avantgarde.
