Les Docks, Lausanne
Manon paints landscapes for your ears. The palette of the Zurich singer-songwriter is full of contrasting tone colors: light and shadow collide in a universe that is as alien as it is earthbound. Her pictures captivate with filigree lines, wide surfaces and powerful accents.Composed by Manon, the music unites infinity and intimacy. They are pieces apart from classical structures. Sometimes they float slightly, the next moment they break out of a volcano. Lovely melodies flow into menacing abysses. Yet the result always feels organic and authentic.The new songs were recorded by Manon at Greenhouse Studios in Reykjavik and produced with Francesco Fabris.
