Lucia Cadotsch

voice | Switzerland
Management Artist, Live Artist

LIUN - The Science Fiction Band is the creative product of Lucia Cadotsch and Wanja Slavin’s obsessive exploration of the interplay between musical genres and also their own complexly woven reference points. They create a contemporary expression that merges the digital and analogue worlds. The music meanders between dark, forceful beats and fragile melodic contours. Wanja’s complex, multilayered arrangements are contrasted with Lucia’s frank and translucent voice that cuts through the clutter. The Songs question societal norms of gender behaviour and reference strong-headed female artists and characters such as Kiddo, Foxy Brown or Princess Mononoke and Eleven. The result is a phantasmagorical world that mirrors our contemporary state as an absurd, but wonderful combination of natural and virtual elements.

"Remember the name Lucia Cadotsch – you’re going to be hearing a lot of it!“, wrote to the British "Guardian" about the Swiss singer. Together with the Berlin based saxophonist and composer Wanja Slavin - according to SZ an artist "between genius and madness“ - she opens up a whole new chapter with LIUN + The Science Fiction Band: Urban music with dark beats, dazzling synths and pulsating hooks. Wanja Slavin's multilayered orchestral arrangements are contrasted with Lucia’s frank and translucent voice that cuts through the clutter. The result is a phantasmagorical world that mirrors our contemporary state as an absurd, but wonderful combination of natural and virtual elements.“

It was a different world back then. There was a time before you could amplify sound with electricity, before you could accumulate sound in plastic and bring it from one corner of Tellus to another. This is the remix. Keeping it simple and raw. Three voices stubbornly creating the core of all music; Rhythm! Candles still flicker; the frequencies of yesterday still resonate. This is acoustic retro-futurism.
