The entrancing duo of Maarja Nuut & Ruum (Hendrik Kaljujärv) synthesises the soul of things; past present and future. Playing with the murky zone between light and shadow, Maarja’s vocal experimentation, violin and looper complement Ruum’s abstract electronic soundscapes and envelop the listener. The Quietus called their 2018 collaboration “one of the year’s most beautiful journeys through inner and outer space”.
Maarja Nuut - "Recreating Traditions" | Singer and violinist Maarja Nuut creates haunting soundscapes based on traditional Estonian songs. Using live looping, storytelling and body percussion she pushes them into the 21st Century. In this workshop, Maarja will give an insight into her creative process; talking about the elements that have inspired her in traditional music, how it has shaped her own way of composing and how she recreates those songs while using modern technology. This is your chance to see a unique innovator up close!
