From the very beginning, it was my love for a very special instrument,
the harp, which has always been an inspiration for my artistic work.
The result is an individual interpretation of my favorite instrument,
which is deliberately different from the classical image of the harp.

 

Martina Stock - electroacoustic harp with light
a visual performing soundsculpture
 

Martina Stock is a harpist known
for her fusion of classical harp and electronic music.

Her original compositions range from pieces with
touching and catchy melodies to rousing,
energetic tracks that underline the versatility of this musical project.

The melody of the lead harp, which can also be perceived
as "singing", as singing narratives, merge with the
rhythmic beats and electronic textures.
Martina Stock's compositions are located in the areas of
neo-classical, electro and film music.

The live performance, a "visual performing soundsculpture" shows an
innovative interplay of light, sound and technology.

The harp, an instrument with a long history in classical music,
finds a refreshing reinterpretation in this interplay, in which profound
melodies are harmonized with pulsating beats and grooves.
The boundaries between tradition and avant-garde are blurred.
