Fluister presents: POPPY ACKROYD

Alex Stolze

Poppy Ackroyd is a classically trained violinist and pianist. In addition, Poppy was fascinated by electronic music at a young age, which has ensured that she has found her own style within composing. She combines the contemporary sound of her keyboard with the classical sound of her piano and violin. Using various techniques, Ackroyd creates the illusion of a complete orchestra, with only a few instruments.

The intelligent artist uses recordings of improvised piano pieces, places them in other sequences and manipulates the sound digitally. The result is a fantastic fusion of acoustic and electronic in a post-classical setting.

Violinist, composer and producer Alex Stolze will provide the support act on February 6. Earlier this year his latest album ‘Outermost Edge’ was released at Nonostar Records. Alex moves effortlessly between modern classical and an electronic sound with the new album. A performance where he plays with his unique, custom made five-string electro-acoustic violin. Alex is supported on the piano and electronics by Ben Osborn.

“Resolve puts her comfortably on par with neo-classical giants Nils Frahm, Max Richter and Hauschka.”
