Live Electronic Duo KIDSØ ANNOUNCES ‘Childhood’ AlbumSHARES ‘Path’ Single
“...minimal yet powerful crisp beats and warm waves of synth.” - Data Transmission
Listen. Listen to the wind; to the dancing dust. Hear the melodies of the dying boughs. Listen to the children. Hear their calls. Far, far away. Hear them fall silent in the sand. (J.C. Groth)
Based in Munich, KIDSØ is the combined talent of two friends, Moritz Grassinger and Martin Schneider, who have both been tinkering with electronic music and percussion instruments since they were youngsters.
Their dynamic live shows consist of instruments such as drums, analogue synthesizers and guitars. The laptop is used as an instrument to shape new sounds in real-time. Their sound is focused primarily around percussion, felt pianos, strings such as cello and viola, analogue synths, and electronic drums. Influenced by acts such as Christian Löffler and Ólafur Arnalds, their rhythmic beats draw parallels to the compositions of Parra for Cuva or Rival Consoles, blended with elements of fragility akin to the work of Kiasmos.
