THE LAST PLACE (LEFT)
& YELLOW NEON LETTERS


MUSIC PERFORMANCE PROJECT
2009-2014

KATRYN HASLER, BARITONE VIOLIN
FLORINE JUVET, ACCORDION
MARCEL ZAES, ELECTRONICS/COMP.





With THE LAST PLACE (LEFT), Marcel Zaes creates a fragile sound world which moves familiar things into a surprising light. The deliberate surrender of virtuosity and melody puts the focus entirely on the inner self of the sound and the rhythm patterns that are derived from prime number permutations. Subtly “handcrafted” electronic sounds mix inseparably with the baritone violin and accordion, both instruments which in itself emit timbre that is reminiscent of synthesized sound. THE LAST PLACE (LEFT) is at the same time machined poetry and groovy sound world. The record THE LAST PLACE (LEFT) was released in October 2011 by Tonus Music Records. Photographs of the installation INTENTS by Anna Schölß are shown in the CD artwork. It can be purchased at www.tonus-music-records.com, streamed from Spotify or downloaded from iTunes Store.

YELLOW NEON LETTERS is the second project of the trio Hasler/Juvet/Zaes. Again, the two classical instruments provide a rich sound material in real-time while while Zaes’ ideosyncratic max/msp patch creates algorhtimic sound textures out of this material. YELLOW NEON LETTERS has been premiered at Festival ReVolt in Rome in 2011, and was published, again with Anna Schölß’ art work, on a record by Tonus Music Records in 2014. It is available on Tonus Music, Spotify and iTunes.
