Soft Melodies and Rumbling Dissonance with Marie Marie

Something special happened when these two musicians met in 2016 at the Melting Pot Lab, Wroclaw, Poland, which is why the two vocalists have been working together ever since.

Between free improvisations and original compositions, Marie Marie uses percussion, gongs, electronics, and acoustics to create a varied soundscape that ranges from soft, catchy melodies to rumbling dissonance.

Marie Daniels lives in Cologne, Germany and is a regular member of various orchestras, including the quartet h i l d e (recipient of the Carl Dörken Foundation scholarship) and Marie Mokati, which received the Sparda Jazz Award in 2015. Marie Daniels belongs to two music collectives in NRW, PENG e.V. and the Dorf & Umland collective.

Vocalist and percussionist Mette Marie Ørnstrup has explored many musical frontiers as an improviser, performer, and global musician. 

Having traveled the world with her music, Mette Marie spent a year and a half in Istanbul studying classical Ottoman music and song at the conservatory. 

With one foot in free improvisation and one in world music, Mette Marie offers a wide range of musical landscapes and structures.
