Departure Duo

soprano+double bass duo with Eddie Kass

We perform, commission, and research works written specifically for soprano and double bass.

Our longterm goal is 30 by '30: 30 hours of repertoire by 2030.

We maintain a database of all known works for soprano+double bass.

Nina&Auguste

improvisation duo w/ Augustė Vickunaitė

Augustė plays reel-to-reel tape recorders, and I sing. Our music frequently has loops and noise, but not exclusively. All sounds are live, analogue, and improvised.​​​

We also improvise imaginary news programs for radio.

Together, Leonie and I create interdisciplinary pieces that combine installations and sung music. Our most recent work is MOSSOPERA, a long duration, installation opera for two voices, dictaphones, and ceramic resonators.
