Lyra Pramuk‘s debut album Fountain was created by utilizing only recordings of the American, Berlin-based artist’s own voice, “processing and layering largely non-verbal sounds to explore the very fiber of her being,” as Pitchfork declared in their Best New Music review. Fusing elements of classical vocal techniques, pop structures, performance practices and influences of various genres of contemporary electronic music, the result is what could be best described as some kind of sacral, futuristic folklore. Since the release of the album in 2020, Lyra Pramuk has collaborated with musicians like Holly Herndon, Ben Frost, KMRU, Colin Self and others. Her performance at NEXT will be followed by concerts at C2C and Pitchfork Music Festival this autumn.
