Excellent Copenhagen-based double-header of composer, producer, guitarist and vocalist, ML Buch, and singer, cellist, and composer, Cæcilie Trier, aka CTM.

ML Buch

ML Buch is a Copenhagen based composer, producer, guitarist and vocalist, connecting intimate pop schemes with explorative electronic soundscapes.

With an offset in open tunings on a 7-string Stratocaster, slide and fretless tablet guitars, and deep sampling of guitar plugins, ML Buch draws up narratives and locations in a distant time. Props like puddles, well buckets, bone barrels and flesh rags live in these scenes, suspended in air, roaming around, climbing stairs and ladders, all given life through her guitar sensibilities and visceral vocals.

Her second album ‘Suntub’ will be released October 27th through new Danish imprint 15 love.

CTM/Cæcilie Trier is a Copenhagen based cellist, singer, and composer, with her classical training apparent across her many and varied projects and collaborations. Having received critical acclaim from the earliest moments of her career, Trier's album 'Suite For A Young Girl' was nominated for the prestigious Nordic Music Prize in 2017. Followed by the critically praised album “Red Dragon” (Posh Isolation, 2018), the album “Celeste” by the duo Trier/ Rosenbaum (Posh Isolation 2021), the album “Babygirl” as CTM (Posh Isolation 2022) and most recently the album "Vind", released in autumn 2023 via 15 love.

"Vind" consists of 12 pieces written and performed by CTM; solo cello compositions with only a few exceptions - a daf enhancing the rhythm, a distant memory of the kora, a pensive flute or folly sounds. The softness of the acoustic instruments is counterplayed by concise compositions and hyperreal productions, staging familiar sounds from a new perspective, like standing next to something so massive you lose sense of what it is. "Vind" explores the tactility and sensibility of the cello, playfully investigating classical tropes for the instrument. Is the orchestra waiting for the soloist to enter, or the other way around.

[In addition to CTM, Cæcilie Trier is known for her manifold collaborations with a vast field of musicians in different areas of the music scene of Copenhagen, ranging from Mayhem-connected acts such as Croatian Amor, Scandinavian Star, Valby Vokalgruppe to Soho Rezanejad, Ydegirl and Choir of Young Believers, over the jazz and Gambian traditional Kora-player Dawda Jobarteh or in duo format with pianist and producer August Rosenbaum, to performing as a trio with the classical guitarists Lars Trier and Christian Sievert, and most recently TLF Trio with Jakob Littauer and Mads Kristian Frøslev, with whom she released the album “Sweet Harmony” on Latency in 2022. Since summer 2023, Cæcilie Trier has been performing the cello compositions from "Vind" as the dance performance "Bow" made in collaboration with artist and dancer Skjold Rambow, performing at a.o. Berlin Atonal (Berlin), Munch Museet (Oslo) and Arken (Copenhagen).]
