The Art of Escapism (SE/PL/DK)
Ania Rybacka – voice
Lo Ersare – voice
Using voice as the most expressive and intimate from all instruments, Ania Rybacka (PL) and Lo Ersare (SE) create a musical universe, welcoming the audience to escape from daily routines, matters of past and future. Through loops and vocal effects, their voices multiply and cross each other, moving back and forth between complex layers of rhythms, and music of a more minimalistic nature.
Original methods of improvisation allow the singers to effortlessly create stories in the moment, where unconventional vocal soundscapes take the listener’s imagination for a creative spin. The music is influenced by folk and vocal techniques coming among others form Bulgarian singing, Polish and Swedish traditions. The place of the performance and sound acoustics strongly affect the music, making each concert a unique experience.
“I look into her eyes, and fearlessly begin singing the first thing that comes to my mind. We never talk before a concert. Never plan nor sketch our improvisation. I never know what will happen in following seconds, but I’m certain she will support me. She will surprise me, but never question me while we create. Our voices will become one. Again I will feel how our music is bigger then us. Again I will escape my body and dive into this mesmerising endless universe.”
