about

Far from her native Vienna, Austria, Steffi Neuhuber met Natalie Chami at an experimental show at Collaboraction during a visit to Chicago. Their friendship blossomed by way of their shared interests in electro-acoustic improvisation, ambient music, and strong feminism in the experimental music scene. "barren is" documents a series of the duo's live sessions, presented here as recorded at Chami's home, without overdubs. the musicians sought to build a shared language in their short time together, pieced together from delay trails, long loops, suspended synth tones, and whispered vocalization. Neuhuber performed on contrabass recorder. Chami sang, played synthesizers, and processed/looped sounds with pedals.
