Native Instrument in Concert

Native Instrument is a Berlin-based duo that brings together the field recording archive of the Australian sound artist Felicity Mangan with the precise and minimal vocabulary of Norwegian vocalist Stine Janvin Motland.

Native Instrument’s music is built from electronic and vocal adaptations of animal and insect recordings, originating mainly from Australian and North European fauna. The organic mix of bug beats and atmospheric soundscapes uncovers a sonic ambiguity between rural nature, electronics, and the human voice, creating a peculiar, mellow insect techno.
