“The solo improvisation performance is without doubt the ultimate personal statement for me. It's driven by an inner urgency for sharing with the audience the collective immersion into sound.”
For a longer time Laura has been exploring the violin's diverse sound capacities while simultaneously weaving in her voice. She gets inspiration from the nature, the oldest Chinese book of oracles "I -Ging" and from her wide musical background. What emerges are sounds and songs reverberating around a complex tension that defy any simple categorization. In May 2018 I released a first solo album "Elements and Songs" with Veto Records http://www.veto-records.ch/ and played concerts in Switzerland (Moods, Beeflat, Cully), Germany, Austria and Scandinavia. Laura got nominated for the international improvisation contest Aarau.
I got a grant from the city of Bern to work on new music in spring 2019. This material will include electronic effects and sampling.
