We are happy to announce our forthcoming release!
Anna Linardou – Heterotopia (underflow 05) June 2019
Anna Linardou is a Greek vocalist who explores the whole spectrum of the human voice. Her singing incorporates a multitude of styles and vocal qualities, as well as traditional vocal idioms and extended techniques. Anna became known to the Greek audience due to her early collaborations with renowned Greek popular artists, but her constant urge to understand the versatility of the singing voice soon prompted her to further studying, experimenting and improvising freely. Since then she has been an active performer in a variety of projects, either as a member of music collectivities, such as Vault of Blossoms Ropes, Liminal Vanguard & Lüüp, or as a soloist in projects of contemporary, improvised world and jazz music in Greece and abroad (Teatro Comunale di Bologna, De Singel- Antwerp, Onassis Cultural Centre, Punkt Festival etc.)
Her debut album, Heterotopia, released by Underflow Records, is a variety of vocalities from diverse places and eras, transformed through a contemporary perspective. Vocal idioms of many different traditions are blended with electroacoustics, sampling and free improvisation, in order to create sonic landscapes of undefinable geography. Appalachian bluegrass and throat singing, Lebanese lullabies and prepared piano treatments, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Medieval tunes, extended vocals, electronics, sampling and resynthesis of voice and acoustic instruments are some of the elements that constitute a place where the singing voice crosses the barriers of style and celebrates its multi-faceted nature.
