"There is this new sound, the new form, the new vision and the beauty in the chaos: Stephanie Lottermoser sets off with a drive that keeps the listeners in the sold-out Geltinger "Hinterhalt" at the Pipapo Festival on a very normal Tuesday evening suspended between magic and rationality. The musician, composer and singer has gathered a hand-picked crew of musicians around her, who not only participate in this tremendous intensity and the will-o'-the-wisp between almost all facets of jazz and beyond components like notation or repeatability, but - as it seems - develop it just in this moment.

Her voice is fresh and clear, almost girlish. She doesn't have to strain her vocal chords to captivate and move.
