review ANIMATA CD (FAZ, 14th of March 2016)
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, 14. März 2016
Christoph Haberer - drums, electronics
Sarah Buechi - lyrics, voice
Und das noch
I can\'t find any prototype for this CD, no similar way of connecting the vocal and instrumental concepts of sound: \'Animata\' (Jazzhaus Musik).
It is the result of the collaboration of the young Swiss vocalist Sarah Buechi with her English lyrics and the widely experienced percussionist Christoph Haberer who seems to travel between ethnological research, machined astetics and electronical sound fantasies.
Buechi has proven herself to have a versatile way of singing. She possesses an almost girly and beautiful cantilena, which she can colour in marvelous ways or fuse with metal but from which she can distance herself as well with whispering passages, speech bubbles, yodel like colours and dramatic outbreaks.
The lyrics are all written by her. One is encouraged to read along with them at least once. They deal with wondrous love dreams, hunger for wisdom, love, joy, are cryptic, ordinary, philosophical, surreal, metaphysical.
While consuming the total work of art the lyrics play a minor role or even no role at all during the oustanding musical events and their totally different course on this journey. As for example in one piece where both knock about with sensefree scats. (u.o. FAZ, 14th of March 2016)
