Fiona Grond Quartet
The young swiss vocalist and composer knows no boundaries when it comes to melody or harmony. Combining, subtracting – the end result is always a well-rounded piece of music. She gets her inspiration mostly from the beautiful things in life, but nonetheless her compositions often sound dark with a hint of melancholy. Elements of chamber music are accompanied by electronics. Lyrics in Swiss German, French and English or sometimes just syllables shed a new light on her melodies. Her arrangements are never lacking in soft and fragile notes, detailed but never overly intellectual. A warm voice that floats over sometimes spheric, sometimes structured sounds and a band whose empathetic interactions creates something new every time.
