A singer, producer of electro music and classical composer, Elizabeth Bernholz is praised for her style of unique, aerially cool industrial pop she produces under the name of Gazelle Twin. This “high priestess in a sombre synthesizer landscape” (Spex) evokes a feeling of permanent goose pimples and amazes with her uncanny stage presence. The music industry, all too happy to stylise female singers as sexy icons, is reduced to absurdity by her stocking-mask/hoodie kind of masquerade. On her recently published new album Unflesh, she refines her sombre sound to abduct listeners to mysterious, not so cosy dream landscapes of the unconscious.

“Puberty, anxiety, miscarriage, illness and euthanasia are all present, and Bernholz's treatment of them ranges from a shuddering disgust to vengeful catharsis to something approaching tender acceptance.” The Quietus"
Concert series running from November 19th through 21st featuring Bianca Casady & the C.i.A., Gazelle Twin and Mirel Wagner
„Can't catch me, I'm syntax free, I'm preconceived, preternaturally (…)“ Sonic Youth – The Ineffable Me
Three utterly different musicians visit brut for the concert series The Ineffable Me: Bianca Casady, one half of the artsy folk music duo CocoRosie, includes video art and choreography in her new solo project; electropop musician Gazelle Twin confronts the terrors of puberty in a hoodie; and Finnish artist Mirel Wagner plays gloomy blues music with a sub-pop touch. All three of them refuse to submit to the still male-dominated dictate of the pop industry, like to play with attributed identities and amaze by their ineffable, intractable musical creations.
