In ihrem 2012 neu gegründeten Wabi-Sabi Orchestra versammelt die in Berlin lebende österreichische Sängerin und Komponistin Laura Winkler einige der umtriebigsten und kreativsten Köpfe der Berliner Jazzszene.
"I was blown away by Laura Winkler's Wabi-Sabi Orchestra ... Endlessly brilliant." ?
"Laura Winkler must be one of the only singers that I have come across in many years that not only sings like an angel, but is also a first class composer and arranger!? Paper clips“ is a 10 movement work that unfolds with the power of an oratorio, but defies category. ?Each movement is colored by the unusual imagery of its texts and is orchestrated in unique ways.?Listening through Laura's work, I felt as like I was circling above the earth, hearing a celestial overview of the world of music's most fascinating sojourns from this past epoch.? Laura has carved a fresh pathway into the small, but beautiful world of creative music that is not afraid of detail, organization and limitless development. ?Her keen sense of phrasing and articulation powers her vocal performances throughout, making the lead lines sink into the music and integrate with the compositions effortlessly. „Paper clips“ is a rare statement that will provide your ears with fresh vantage points upon each new listening. ?So - sit back - and enjoy the first of what I imagine to be many spins in your tray".?
„Laura Winkler has created a unique and magical world with her newest project, Laura Winkler & Wabi-Sabi Orchestra. Laura is one of the most gifted young composers on the scene- a musician and vocalist par excellence, and an inspiration to those around her. A real voice of the future in jazz and new music!“
