STEEL GIRLS (Castello, Claussen, Leibetseder & Schwarz)

Steel Girls (Astrid Schwarz, Angélica Castelló, Tobias Leibetseder, Martina Claussen)  make metal speak in a practical, simple form, which makes sensual poetry possible. The rawness, the resistance and the hardness of the metal and particularly the steel is counteracted by the flexible. It is not just about the charm of production, like welding as performance, but also about the challenge of acoustics, the exhaustion of acoustic possibilities with and without electronics. The rawness is shaped and not standardized, the proportions are pushed into the light so that the sparks fly and something new can arise.
