Noémi Büchi & Feldermelder
Composer and sound artist Noémi Büchi creates electronic, symphonic maximalism. Her music is defined by a delicate synthesis of textural rhythms and electroacoustic-orchestral abstraction.
She already played at prestigious festivals and was awarded a Culture Award of the City of Zurich. Her 2019 debut EP ‘Matière’, released through Light of Other Days, drew widespread acclaim. In 2020, she released a second EP ‘Prismic Passages’ on the Leipzig- based tape label Visible Dinner. -OUS will be releasing her debut album ‘Matter’ and its prelude ‘Hyle’ in 2022, as well as the debut album of Musique Infinie, a collaboration between Noémi Büchi and Feldermelder.
She explores the potential of consonance and dissonance, contrasts rhythmic physicality with disruption and playfully emphasizes irregularities, creating an expansive listening experience marked by detail and elevation. ‘Hyle’is a prelude to her debut album ‘Matter’, which will be released on -OUS in 2022.
Feldermelder is a Swiss musician, sound designer, producer, and installation artist. He is co-founder of -OUS Records and part of the audio-visual collective Encor.studio. He has previously released several releases on -OUS Records, both as a solo artist, and in collaboration with Sara Oswald and Julian Sartorius. Feldermelder’s influences range from pioneering early electronic music to contemporary analogue electronics to classic jazz and beyond. The diversity of the music that inspires him is mirrored in his own work, which illustrates an ever-evolving sound, and indicates that influence is seen as both map and compass, guiding divergent inclinations.
