They met on stage. They found the same joy in focused connection, playfulness, surprise. They love an unconventional language of sound and unexpected change of esthetic and dynamics.
They don’t like to be asked to describe their work. They avoid definitions. They invite you to join their Presence and Space in your own way.
Claudia Cervenca The Romanian-born and Vienna-based vocalist Claudia Cervenca left the mainstream jazz scene about 15 years ago and has since been active in the experimental field of free improvisation and new music. She enjoys exploring new sound spectrums of the vocal art in an unconventional musical aesthetic.
This has led to international collaboration with musicians and contemporary composers: Judith Unterpertinger, Pia Palme, Elisabeth Harnik, Katharina Klement, Annette Giesriegl, Sabu Toyozumi, Charlotte Hug, Nina de Heney, Benedict Taylor, Dine Doneff, Irene Kepl, Franz Hautzinger, Raimund Vogtenhuber, Antonis Anissegos, Alison Blunt, Hannah Marshall, Lisa Ullen, Tristan Honsinger, Paul Rogers, and others.
Her interest in electronically generated sounds, as a complementary tool to her own voice, was the starting point for her later composition studies and cooperation with media artists (Veronika Mayer, Daniel Mayer, Raimund Vogtenhuber, Thomas Grill, Korhan Erel a.o.).
