Moor Mother

Dissecting an Utterance

Ute Wassermann (NL), Dylan Nyoukis (UK) & Claus Haxholm (DK)

Performative panel debate

A surreal Panel debate will take place, with four experimental vocal artists getting to the depths of what it means to be a human being with a voice - not through power points and well conceptualised reasons but by going straight for the heart of it.

The voice in its primal form, a voice with a verbal language, a voice that can travel incoherently between timbres and concepts.

Four very different aspects and views on the topics will be dissected live in the panel debate, creating a space for the body to speak it's mother tongue and for the mind to let it's non-linear impulses mutate for the sheer thrill of exploring it's (un-)natural habitat.


Ute Wassermann (NL), vocal soloist and composer/performer known for her extraordinary, many-voiced and extreme vocal sound-language, which she has brought into experimental/contemporary music in diverse ways.

Dylan Nyoukis's (UK) performances resemble violent spasms, wordless vocal improvisations made up of yowls, snarls, ululation and gibbering.

Claus Haxholm (DK), experimental musician, visual artist and writer who has worked and excelled within the wide field of sonic experimentation, with a strong talent for improvisation.
