contemporary vocal duo mascha corman, thea soti
new improvised music, experimental voices, story-telling, spoken word
A contemporary duo of intimacy and fragile sounds. Two voices who celebrate the freedom of stepping outside the usual tonal-rhythmical framework, musical gestures and compositions. Two voices who are inspired by jazz through contemporary poetry and new classical music till noise. Two voices who are interchangable and readily swap roles or transform themselves beyond recognition. Two voices who are in love with the unknown. stories unfold and improvised melodies twist their way through a hand-made soundscape. So direct and so personal what only the human voice could possibly create.
Mascha Corman and Thea Soti are two free-improvising Cologne-based vocalists who have been working together since 2015. Their debut album was released by the Portuguese label “Creative Sources Recordings.” In 2017, they presented their album in Italy (Montepulciano Improvisation Masterclasses), Denmark (Copenhagen Jazz Festival), Portugal and Germany.
