Dalia Donadio (voice)
Linda Vogel (harp)

On their debut album „Ich Als Du“, the duo „Schwalbe und Elefant“ (Dalia Donadio, voice and Linda Vogel, harp) sets swiss german poetry into the periphery of free improvised music and plain song structures. Spoken word in unisono with the notes of the harp, lively sung melodies and mazily, bumpy pieces of lyrics compose the soundscape of the improvisations. Both musicians move freely between the roles of being the leader, accompanying or being an equal member of the duo. By using e ects and extended playing techniques, the harpist Linda Vogel expands the soundspectrum of her instrument and dicovers innovative sounds. The range of sounds, created by the singer Dalia Donadio consists of physically generated notes and noises, as well as electric e ects and loops. Her pointed out lyrics give access to universal themes. „Schwalbe & Elefant“ focuses on a raw, physical and localised life experience rather than dwelling in the fugacious elds of a digitalized world. The sounds of this decelerated approach o er to its listeners a sensitized perception of time and space. Music, that welcomes you to stay and discover.
