Carolin Pook <> SPACEPILOT (US, DE)

The program “Cosmic String Time Travel” from Carolin Pook and Spacepilot is a collision between two musical galaxies: a contemporary string quartet meets a New York power trio. Spacepilot combines influences from rock, funk and techno with free improvised sounds using guitar, synths, drums and loads of electronic effects. At moers festival, their approach will be extended by the postmodern compositions and free improvisations of violinist Carolin Pook, who will play opposite Spacepilot flanked by three further members of a string quartet assembled for the occasion. An exciting interplay between sound collage and congruent grooves is to be expected – running the gamut from psychedelic sounds to danceable tropes. Based in New York, Carolin Pook served as 2016’s Moers Improviser in Residence.
