A composer and choreographer who works in both New York and Berlin, Colin Self is an artist with a profound and introspective approach who challenges the notion of gender as well as the scope of our social relations in this era of digital mutation. With his second album, Siblings, released last year, this multidisciplinary artist offers up a truly original, futuristic opera, melding explorations into techno, pop, and folk music with orchestral and electronic arrangements. Few artists succeed in creating such an invigorating and meaningful musical potpourri driven by an intimate yet universal theme.
"Colin Self’s artistic practise spans performance, choreography, sculpture, and music an unlikely combination of lush and lilting songwriting, experimental sound pieces, and hyperspeed cyber-techno. At the core of the album is the voice: choral harmonies, processed vocal phrases, spoken word poetics, and Self’s own countertenor." –Dazed
