Introduction

Suzana Lașcu sings her way into a moment, but nevertheless enjoys organizing noise via external sources. Brought up as an improviser, her work is gradually being woven across different genres, from jazz to the experimental, in the realm of acoustic and electronic music alike. In terms of technique, she isn’t exactly fitting the “traditional” expectations, regularly employing extended techniques, spoken word and non-temperate sound production effects.

As a performer, poet, composer, her work, mostly chamber in size, strives to address all that permeates culture. Therefore, she has been initiated in the trans-disciplinarity of performative practices and would be curios to further explore it.

15 years were dedicated to her formalized music education in the Netherlands and Romania. She graduated from her bachelor studies at Prins Claus Conservatorium and completed a master research paper in jazz improvisation at Codarts University.

Invested in the inventive aspect of music, she variably switches hats as a curator, conductor or songwriter for projects other than her own, in search for collaborative music making.

Amongst her mentors are: Jd Walter, Harjo Pasveer, Liliana Dumitrache, Matt Mitchell, Alex Simu, Loran Witteveen, Conrad Herwig, Marc van Roon, Kurt Weiss, Florin Răducanu, Dumitru Avakian.

Dropping a dime into her Patreon is a temptation we kindly encourage!

“This is undoubtedly an artist charting her own course.”
