The European Resonance Ensemble
While searching for a sound that connects archaic-ethnic music styles with baroque and other early music, in 2012 SUPERSONUS - The European Resonance Ensemble began to form itself. The final instrumentation as a quintet came to being in 2014, involving the musicians Marco Ambrosini (Nyckelharpa/Jew’s harp), Eva- Maria Rusche (Harpsichord/Piano), Anna-Liisa Eller (Kannel/Frame Drum), Anna-Maria Hefele (Overtone singing/Guzheng) and Wolf Janscha (Jew’s harp).
By using this unique combination of different styles, instruments and musical expressions they bring the listener in touch with an intensely rich total sound inviting to an imaginative journey:
There are visions from heaven-like espanse, the exstasy of dance and stoical calmness as well as scenes of joyful puerile playing, or dark, epic shadow theater.
In your mind’s eye you can find baroque pleasure gardens to promenade in, as well as barren mountain tops from where you can observe the world in its inherent natural beauty…
Contrasts, dissimilarities and musical extremes are not perceived as a conflict in SUPERSONUS, but experienced and expressed as a deeply underlying power of their music. They see themselves as bridge-builders, from a cultural and also from a musical point of view.
The unexpected and unheard-of is the far end of the musical architecture they try to achieve. Thence and back again, like a pendulum, they call to life their creativity and muse. Source: last.fm
