Eva is working together with the composer Sandeep Bhagwati and his Ensemble Sabdagatitara - ensemble extrakte, a group of musicians with diverse musical origins including traditions from all over the world as well as genres such as jazz, folk, techno, blues and European concert music.
Together they explore new sound scapes and push boundaries of traditional music, based on deep listening and respect for the other and self - a collaborative, creative process.
Performances include a radio play production with Deutschlandfunk Kultur in 2021 "Beim Ertrinken zu singen" (Link to WORK), the 2021 opening of the Ethnological Museum in the Humboldtforum, Berlin, the 2022 closing presentation of CREATIVE MISUNDERSTANDINGS in the Vienna Weltmuseum, an immersive outdoor performance at the 2022 OORtreders Festival in Neerpelt, Belgium - "a meditative mixture of sound, music, singing and reading. An unusual, haunting performance that connected cultures through improvisation and mixed instrumentation." (Sound Now)
Eva is interested in using her voice and music to build bridges between different cultures. She believes that by exploring diverse sounds and traditions, we can gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the diversity of the world and break from own limitations in order to expand the artistic horizon. Actively seeking out new cultural influences opens up a world of endless creative potential. She is collaborating with various musicians from different backgrounds (Elshan Ghasimi, composer, tar virtuoso and performance artist, Iran / Deniza Popova, Bulgarian singer and researcher) in solo projects, exploring themes of authenticity and diverse perspectives. Presenting this work in art galleries and academic contexts is an opportunity to engage with audiences in meaningful and thought-provoking ways and encourage critical discussion.
Eva brings her voice and liveliness also to conferences (World Web Forum, Zurich) in order to inspire people to find their own original sound and connect with their bodies and minds in ways that feel alive and invigorating.
