Since 2004 Nordzucker is exploring a very special space of
Lars Scherzberg, Michael Maierhof and Birgit Ulher developed an individual language
of sound, beyond the traditional way of using the instruments by extended techniques,
preparations with clothes pins, mutes and metal objects.
The open texture of the music, with lots of silence, is created with splitted,
multiphonic and multilayered sounds.
The music of Nordzucker combines the freedom of improvisation and musical precision.
Their first cd is released by Portuguese label Creative Sources.
