New music for marxophone/zither and clarinet
Zicla is a project by duo Cao Thanh Lan (VN) – Gregor Siedl (AT) with electro-acoustic compositions and structured improvisations for prepared marxophone/zither, clarinet and electronics.
Clarinet and zither are commonly known for folk music across the globe. Using these two instruments in a new syntax evokes a familiar and at the same time foreign environment.
The clarinet’s composed pitch and noise structures interweave with particular sounds from the extended zither creating an unusual imaginary space, introspective moods, abstract microtonal dialogues and intriguing sound textures.
