Sound objects in this world song...not just pretty words! Afro Blue beautiful.
“Afro Blue” EP blends electronic music, jazz, and African musical tradition, such as pygmy’s counterpoint and Baka water drumming. It interweaves sounds of different nature: synths, samples recorded at Lake Huron and live and emotional vocals. Jazz standards are used here as material, re-harmonised, and recontextualised by Anna and Daria into modern and refreshing music. This work is about the ability to hear it in noise and about the absence of a clear boundary between the sounds of nature and the music we create because ultimately we are sound objects in this world song.
