ELIZABETE BALČUS [LV]
avant-garde pop / neo-psychedelia / electro-acoustic / flute loops / audio-visual performance art
Elizabete Balcus is a Latvian musician and actress who creates neo-psychedelic dream pop from surprising, collaged, genre juxtapositions that is simultaneously melodic and experimental. She works with a strong visual aesthetic that draws upon modern surrealism, contemporary fashion and geometric imagery.
Her new album «Conarium» is like a eulogy for the subconsciousness; it searches into the deepest depths. The spirit of the album is weirdly theatrical, welding together free-jazz flute improvisations, unearthly voice, electronic beats, ancient sounds, elements of chamber music and magical secret glitches. One of the instruments she plays is a synthesizer which enables her to play fruit and vegetables as instruments. Live performances engage the audience with a psychedelic and theatrical situation that is as befuddling as it is mesmerizing.

“Cocteau Twins meets Bjork. Great arrangement and gorgeous vocals (song “The Hanging Garden”)” Vehlinggo.com

KAMURA OBSCURA
Japanese agit-femme vocalist and electricist. Former member of Frank Chickens and Mizutama Shobodan (Polka Dot Fire Brigade): first Japanese feminist punk band. Voice-modulated improvisation and eco-surrealist chansons are weaved into the bizarre world of the experimental.

Live review 02/03/2018
“Kamura’s various voices combine to create an indeterminate libretto in which bird song, ocean waves and white noise stand tall. …Synthesised melodies shift the atmosphere from B movie horror, past new age ambient and on to playful children’s song. ..”
Ilia Rogatchevski, The Wire, May 2018
