In cooperation with Elbphilharmonie the Kampnagel Summer Festival presents the Austrian musician Soap&Skin accompanied by the stargaze ensemble and its conductor André de Ridder (who will also lead the concert of the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra with Bell Orchestre at Elbphilharmonie on August 23). Soap&Skin will perform older songs as well as her latest studio album "From Gas to Solid / you are my friend" in a version for chamber orchestra. After various works for film and theatre, Anja Plaschg alias Soap&Skin follows up with this album her raw, furious predecessor records from 2009 and 2012, through which the 1990-born pianist and singer established her exceptional status in the international music scene: Hardly anyone sang "Please help me" more forcefully, called the Greek god of the dead Thanatos more hauntingly or wrote farewell arias with more orchestral impact. Plaschg took a deep look behind the textures of the pop surface and created a musical range from the most subtle chamber music to noise thunderstorms. On her recent album, Plaschg, who once dropped out of the art-school class of Daniel Richter, processes field recordings of instruments and sounds she has made over the past ten years and put together as samples in her Viennese apartment. In the 12 songs of the album electronics, classical instruments and Soap&Skin's deep drilling vocals unite to a vibrant beautiness, which will now - as an extended sound experience with the stargaze ensemble - make the Elbphilharmonie vibrate.
