/// Project created in 2019
Repertoire: original compositions
Direction: Mirjam Hässig
A dream world, sometimes stormy, contemplative and suddenly a pinch of Dadaism, that is what Ayé! offers his listening ears.
Ayé! is characterized by the special instrumentation with harp, double bass, voice, ukulele and sound design. Exciting sound worlds, poetic image painting and alternative pop arrangements lead to the unique sound of the quartet.
The sound design is controlled by the technology "Sensory Percussion". This is a new drum trigger technology from Sweden, which allows a very interactive handling of samples and live percussion. The beats for example remind of Björk or 80s drum machines by Kate Bush and give the music a fresh playfulness. The combination of folky song material with improvising jazz musicians in live performances always leads to surprising musical turns and arrangements.
The four musicians form a colourful team that pays musical attention to each other and creates a warm and captivating atmosphere.
In 2019 Ayé! was awarded the Kulturförderpreis of the Burgdorf Burgergemeinde Burgdorf, which was a beautiful motivation and confirmation and a basis for further research.
