Photolab (duo) (CZ)

Although the central duo, the vocalist Magdalena Šalamounová and the guitarist a.m. almela are typically playing with an entire band, they occasionally perform as a duo over the backdrop of widescreen videos created for each song. The live musicians are replaced by a tape player which is on the stage and plays musical background compiled from typical sounds of the ambient world which Magdalena collects on portable recording equipment and almela arranges into musical bodies.

The role of percussion is taken by the audio signals of the traffic lights, ping-pong balls, a tractor, water dripping from a hand pump, the barking of a dog, or a pistol firing shots. The fans can enjoy the mood of the music by the “soundtrack duo” that has appeared in several Czech films, in brand new contexts.
