Katharina Ernst: monochrom – drums, electronics

Native Instrument is a Berlin based sound collaboration bringing together the field-recordings archive of Felicity Mangan and the abstract vocabulary of Stine Janvin Motland. Often referred to as insect techno, Native Instrument’s music is constructed using electronic and vocal adaptations of animal and insect sounds originating mainly from the Australian and North European fauna. Mixing natural rhythms of birdcalls and bug beats, with digital effects and vocal imitations, Native Instrument enlightens a sonic ambiguity between rural nature, electronics, and the human voice. Native Instrument has recently released their debut EP in March though Shelter Press.

Noumerous collaborations in the context of electroacoustic and improvised music as well as in choreography and fine arts have formed Katharina Ernst's vocabulary on drums. In her solo, she invites chaotic structures to appear in her playing and then suddenly turns them into complex polyrhythmic constructions. Irregular, organic loops and random trash sounds contrast exact grooves. Some of what she does can be located in the soft focus between sound and its organisation, between improvisation and ... just playing the drums! She is currently working on her debut solo LP.
