MONSTERS FOR BREAKFAST
accidental sounds and stories for two voices
AN ENSEMBLE OF FRAGILE SOUNDS AND INTIMACY
two voices who celebrate the freedom of stepping outside the usual tonal-rhythmical framework, musical gestures and compositions. two voices who are inspired by jazz through contemporary poetry and classical music till noise. two voices who are interchangable and readily swap roles or transform themselves beyond recognition. two voices who are in love with the unknown.

stories unfold and improvised melodies twist their way through a hand-made soundscape. so direct and so personal what only the human voice could possibly create.
MASCHA CORMAN
voice
singer, composer, born in düsseldorf, studied jazz singing at the academy of music in cologne with prof. anette von eichel and frank gratkowski as well as deaf pedagogy at the university of cologne. corman's compositions and concepts for her quintet "emcq" range between contemporary jazz, free improvisation and poetry. a strong interest lies within the exploration of voice as an instrumental and experimental soundscape. the debut album of the band was released by the renowned label "ajazz" in 2016. as a composer, singer and vocal artist, she has already participated in several international interdisciplinary projects and is the founder of the initiative STIMMUNGEN in loft.
