Black On Black
When Claudine and Chook first started discussing a common musical project in the winter of 2010, they came from completely different worlds. He had discovered DJ-ing as a teenager and soon made a name for himself not only as a turntable artist, but also as a drum&bass producer; she was a singer-songwriter touring with a folk-rock band and had an admiration for the likes of Tom Waits, Van Morrison and Joni Mitchell. Neither one of them knew anything about the other one's musical roots and influences. Yet, after having built successful careers in their respective fields, they were eager to take on a new musical challenge and search for common ground. The result of this collaboration is MONOPHONA, a blend of two extremes, electronic and intimate, melodic and innovative. When the time came to take their songs to the stage, the duo was joined by Jorsch on drums and percussion.
