Erika Stucky's ICE ORKESTRA feat. We Spoke
It cracks softly at first. Then it crashes. Walking on the ice is risky. You never know exactly when it will wear and when you will break in. In her new project, Erika Stucky takes her audience by the hand and leads them into the glacier world of the Upper Valais Alps. "I'm taking you to an ocean of ice where my ancestors have been wandering for a hundred years."
Things are spooky in Erika Stucky's new festive program. On the Aletsch Glacier, the largest sea of ice in the Alps, she has recorded the roar of rock and water and woven them together. Mysterious the prayers for the dead from the villages, ghostly the death bells. They hover above the landscape, soaring high... far above the tree line....
Erika Stucky's ICE ORKESTRA is another chapter in her artistic exploration of her Swiss homeland. Born and raised in the San Francisco of the Flower Power years, she found herself in the midst of the Swiss mountains at the age of nine after her family moved to her country of origin. The cultural differences continue to fascinate Erika Stucky to this day, so she always picks up and processes new images of her Upper Valais surroundings, never quite forgetting the hippie world of the sixties.
For her Alpine Symphony, Stucky works for the first time with We Spoke, an experimental, contemporary music collective from Geneva. For the Ice Orkestra she has engaged Julien Annoni and Serge Vuille, who accompany Stucky with vibraphone, marimba, drums, percussion and electronics.This content has been machine translated.
