OTHER:M:OTHER MetaMorph Anxious Magazine

Other:M:other is a trio from Austria, consisting of Judith Schwarz (extended drums), Jul Dillier (prepared piano) and Arthur Fussy (modular synthesizer). Judith is a drummer and composer and internationally well known with bands like Chuffdrone, Little Rosies Kindergarten or the duo Hofmaninger/Schwarz. Arthur is a sound designer, composer and engineer. He also works for theatre productions in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. Jul describes himself as a sound poet. He works as a solo artist, performer and jazz pianist. Other:M:other’s aim is to create a rhythmic symbiosis of sound. Acoustic sounds melt with electronic sounds, percussive impulses grow that take their inspiration equally from experimental music and beat-driven club music. With an unusual line-up, expanded ways of playing their instruments and a free improvisational background the trio manage to react musically to their surroundings. A set by Other:M:other can be a rather experimental affair, but it can also be an hour of dance music. The audience doesn’t know what to expect. On their debut album, MetaMorph, you will hear both artistic sides of this outstanding trio, with music that was recorded at three concerts during 2022. Imagine a missing link between free jazz improvisation and club music and you get the idea of what makes this trio so unique! “Other:M:other sends electric shockwaves to the sound-suffused regions of your core. These three Masters of ceremony luxuriate in their analogue eclectoacoustics as a cerebral trinity. Foetal, amniotic waterflashes lead to wild dances around the maternal maypole, a prenatal dive by Mother Mary into this rhythmically pulsating, primordial infusion.”
