SLEEPING CONCERT





QUITE QUIET’s final event: a sleeping concert, from midnight until dawn. A journey unfolding in the time of one night, wandering through the alluring soundscapes of Magda Drodz and Softness’ ambient flutes, further guided by Myalo’s (Patrick Goldhorn) glitchy introspection to the organic environments of C_ (Carlo Fochetti)






Magda Drodz is an artist and musician based in Zürich. Her artistic work spans music, sound art, and composition. Her approach to music is experimental and boundary-pushing. Utilizing a diverse array of influences and techniques, she creates distinctive and alluring soundscapes combining an electroacoustic approach to field recordings with violin drones, orchestral passages, choral melodies, fragile voices, noise, and various instrumentations that delve into intuitive and speculative perceptions of the world through sound. Her releases on esteemed labels like Präsens Editionen and Hallow Ground have received recognition from fans and well-known magazines and blogs such as The Wire, Spex, self-titled Magazine, Fact Mag, and Boomkat. Magda has toured her music throughout Europe, furthermore, showcasing her captivating sound creations and works consistently on sound installations and projects in Switzerland and Europe at institutions like Oto Sound Museum, Shedhalle Zürich, Museo Montagna Torino, Schauspielhaus Zürich. In addition to her solo work, she also composes for film, video, art, theater and radio, including collaborations with artists like Yana Ross, Ernestya Orlowska, Veronika Spierenburg or Katja Brunner. Further she is part of the association Initiative Freie Musikszene Zürich and manages within the association the Studio Z4 residency program.




Softness (Sophie Conus) is a visual artist, composer and DJ based between Lausanne and Geneva. With a desire to understand sound and catch it at its source, she composes her live shows from her own recordings and her musical inspirations: Drone, Post-club and Trance. These different sound textures are then reworked and spatialised to create ambiences that take you on a journey through different atmospheres that intensify over time. More recently, she has been adding flute and vocals, sometimes modulated on effects pedals.




Myalo (Patrick Goldhorn) aims to explore the different aspects of what we call mind/soul through his musical experiments. Guided by everyday sound, media malfunctions and random composition, Myalo's sound ranges from introspective ambient works punctuated by fragmented textures to slow, low rhythm tracks and sharp digital glitches. To further explore the mind, Myalo started MNEMOSYNE, both a label and a series of memory-driven 'sound collage' mixes where artists can musically describe themselves with all kinds of data and sound influences.




C_ (Carlo Fochetti) lives in Losone, Switzerland, he studied electronic music and then Sound Design for Performing Arts, under the teaching of Giorgio Sancristoforo at the SAE Institute in Milan. His sound research explores mainly environmental sonorities and organic sounds derived from matter.
