"The story begins with a person who is neither male nor female, who is simply a person. And then the story goes on and tells us that this person, who is neither male nor female, watches everything that happens from a park bench..."
AnnaOtta’s first release „What if“ is based on philosophical talks about persona, an abstract core in everybody’s character. It is the soundtrack of modern emancipated women in which risk, curiosity and self-determination stand in the center.
The two singers put content over form and allow the improvised tracks to be imperfect, odd in form and cross-border in musical styles. „What if“ is an electronic yet very organic EP since all sounds originate from Jenny Thiele’s and Irene Novoa’s voices.
The songs were recorded on two tracks and in one take, in an improvised session in Madrid, October 2018. They were afterwards edited, produced and mixed by Jenny Thiele and Irene Novoa.
Published in collaboration with the exprimental/noise label Econore on the 18th of December 2020, available on all digital platforms and cassette.
