Founded in 2009, the duo of Agnes Hvizdalek and Daniel Lercher combines abstract vocal music with electroacoustic music.
They share a musical vision where everything is possible and nothing an obligation.
Although of disparate autonomous origins, freely improvised analogue and digital materials are woven together and coalesce into a coherent whole: vocal sounds seem audible in the electronics; unprocessed voice appears electronically manipulated.
Due to their high degree of flexibility and mutual trust the duo switches between fragility and brutality with ease.
Agnes Hvizdalek is an improvising musician, singer, composer and organizer, originating from Vienna’s experimental music scene, who has been based in Oslo, Norway since 2008. From an early age, she has dedicated her life to new music and her fascination with the human voice. She celebrates this in her abstract vocal music, for which she has received international acclaim. Always exploring new horizons, Hvizdalek has engaged in numerous cross-disciplinary collaborations merging voice, visual and performance art, dance, theatre, film, writing.

Varied sonic collages, colorful as the eye-grabbing album art, twist and turn throughout Rossetto's "Fashion Tape." It's a delightful release that combines the artist's intimate drones with an almost playful plundering of samples and sounds. jckmd
Incredible display of control, discipline, and a deep knowledge of the resonant properties of stringed instruments. Virtuosic command of spectral variation, bow pressure, and the infinite distance between the bridge and the fingerboard. Highly recommended for snooty academic french school spectral music fans and rude texture-hungry harsh heads alike. Estlin
