Klein is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in London. In a labyrinthine path, she has been creating abstract narratives based on intimacy and personal experiences with a strong do-it-yourself nature. Her sound takes us to a space of strangeness manifested in collages of dense vocal lines, reminiscent of gospel music and R&B juxtaposed with digital electronics that generate enigmatic atmospheres. She has presented her work at institutions such as the Serpentine Gallery, Barbican, MoMa, Gavin Brown’s Enterprise (New York) and Art Basel among others, and has collaborated with the likes of Mica Levi, Josiane MH Pozi and Mark Leckey (winner of the Turner Prize).
Her latest album, Harmattan, recently released by the distinguished classical label Pentatone, was described by poet Fred Moten as “a soundtrack to an epic revolt against beginnings and endings”, expanding the idea of what classical music can be. Live, these explorations are taken to the extreme, drawing the audience into a unique sonic universe, in a game of gravity and balance between the stage and its limits. Adapted instruments, mysterious voices and distorted sound artifacts collide to create a stunning tapestry of surreal experimental electronics.
