PaVda with Amanda Schoofs – “Sound Poems”
Improvisational noise duo PaVda (Linda Binder and Hal Rammel) join experimental vocalist and composer Amanda Schoofs for a beautiful series of free improvisations themed around friendship. Instruments such as the musical saw, viola d’amore, waterphone, and amplified palette are utilized by PaVda as Schoofs sings poetically yet entranced. These pieces transcend traditional language structure (demonstrated with titles such as “At the Door of Language” and “Words Fail Here”) as it applies to both the instruments and the voice, which challenges the very fabric of what is popularly considered music. We are delighted about this release and look forward to hearing what kind of musical experiments PaVda and Amanda Schoofs take part in in the future.
