Cosy Nook with Stefan Thut

For the 6th Cosy Nook we welcome Swiss composer and cellist Stefan Thut


Stefan performs anew (2018) a piece that he had never yet played in front of an audience

For quite a while Stefan has been fascinated by singing in head voice.
In anew a string player may replace common instrumental techniques like bowing or plucking a string by singing quietly, thus enabling him/her to experience the distance between the human body and instrument since the voice always resides inside the body and perhaps the possibility of the merging of both playing and singing.

This concert took place a couple of days after stefant Thut at Iklectik in London and at UCA Farnham.


Stefan Thut

For Stefan music is directly linked to the sensual, if the sensual is taken in a literal meaning as the starting-point of perceiving music at all.” His music and recordings have been released by Edition Wandelweiser Records, Another Timbre, Elsewhere, Intonema, INSUBrecords, Leerraum, to name a few.

Cosy Nook

(since 2016) a small cove in South London, where we occasionally come together to play, listen to and share words, sounds and other gems, polished or unpolished. (Named after a small rocky bay littered with gem stones smoothed by the fierce tidal waters of New Zealand South Island).
