Vintage synths definitely do have a life of their own. They very often respond in unexpected ways but that's exactly what makes the end result special and unique. Kuoko and I made extensive use of them during our three session days. We started with a song fragment of hers and together turned it into a full composition with a lovely mix of electronic and acoustic instruments. The process felt very fluid and natural. Everything seemed to just fall into place.
You, me and the devil love synthesizers.
KUOKO is hamburg-based artist Jasmina Quach, who creates her own DIY-universe by not only producing music, but also the artwork and stage costumes in the unique visual world around her. Kuoko is writing electronic songs using her instruments fancifully while still creating a very clear sound. Synth melodies and distinct beats are moving together in one orbit with Kuoko´s voice that adds a childlike lightheartedness to the melancholic mood of the music.
