‘JAUNU’ the fourth album by HOERA., weaves new sounds and structures with samples of the Lithuanian chamber choir Jauna Muzika. Together with conductor Vaclovas Augustinas and the 24 singers the trio recorded an archive of original audio material in the LRT studio in Vilnius.
Instead of using the recorded material as is, they created a digital identity of the choir, a processed version that could be manipulated through sampling and performed again later in the studio.
Bert, Dries & Stijn each created their own way of sampling the choirs recordings, creating unique instruments that could be used alongside their main instrument. With these setups they performed in trio in the studio. They discovered new sounds and structures in dialogue with the Lithuanian chamber choir samples.
‘JAUNU’ presents the resulting sonic world of a 24 singers choir performed by HOERA.

Biosphere's albums seem to get better every time you listen, while the converse sadly seems to be true for a lot of other music. Biosphere's soundscapes are like experiences you want to revisit to find previously undiscovered treasures. Matelot
