SURMA is a solo-multi-instrumentalist, taking you to a mind-opening journey through looped sonic environments. A unique mix of a child-like voice, ambient music and post-rock to jazz-influences like shimmering guitar lines creates versatile 10-track soundscapes and synth and sample lullabies. Coming from a „wild, young and free“ town in Portugal and after studying in jazz school Surma explores concepts of a cosmic psyche and global primordial consciousness. She is touring south-central Europe and further presenting her debut album „Antwerpen“ (Omnichord Records).
SHINSEKAI (新世界, “New World”) is a transhuman project that investigates radical possibilities in music by manipulating digital tracks. By playing and mixing contrasting genres on the dark side of electronic dance music, they break the constraints of genre, taste and social difference. Alien timbres, distorted vocals and broken club oriented rhythms define a kaleidoscopic glimpse of musical futures. Linz-based with Vietnamese roots.
