Anna Mignon solo   ANNA MIGNON - voice, keyboard, effects & composition Lyrical   melodic   lines   merge   with   jazzy   and   warm   sound   surfaces in   minimalist   arrangements.   Furthermore,   Mignon's   distinctive voice   rises   sometimes   fragile,   breathy,   in   other   times   she   is calling,   speaking,   whispering,   croaking,   or   -   in   a   moment   of ecstasy   -   fervently   exploring   the   ups   and   downs.   However,   the focus   is   always   on   the   lyrics,   in   which   the   singer   and   composer tells   of   seemingly   insignificant   observations,   but   also   of   intimate snapshots   that   reach   inward,   touching   and   stimulating   the   heart and brain. Additionally,   her   repertoire   of   texts   also   includes   lyrics   that   make one   smile;   such   as   her   musical   settings   of   selected   poems   of   the humourist    Wilhelm    Busch.    Other    compositions    are    based    on poems   of   Emily   Dickinson,   Emily   Brontë   and   Edgar   Allan   Poe, which are put into a modern musical context.

    worttönen     ANNA MIGNON - voice, piano, effects & composition LENA RUBEY - lyric poetry & short prose works The   singer   and   composer   Anna   Lindenberger,   alias   Anna   Mignon and   author   Lena   Rubey   make   common   cause:   In   their   project, they   combine   their   works   into   an   atmospheric   collage;   in   the emerging   word   and   sound   setting,   texts   and   songs   engage   in   a dialogue and challenge each other to create new perspectives. Mignon's   and   Rubey's   texts   describe   interpersonal   relationships, portray snapshots and create abstractions of the personal. With   a   dark,   powerful   voice,   the   singer   is   able   to   bring   her   lyrics to    life    and    to    create    moments    of    intensity    from    which    the listeners   cannot   escape.   In   between,   Rubey   scatters   lyrical   bits and   fragments   of   text   making   it   intellectually   a   bit   challenging for   the   audience   here   and   there.   Rhythm   and   sound   of   the words are given room to linger.

MARTIN ZAUNSCHIRM - piano
MICHAEL SCHÖNER - bass
CHRISTIAN KURZ - drums The   three   musicians,   Christian   Kurz   (dr),   Michael   Schöner   (b) and    Martin    Zaunschirm    (p),    around    the    jazz    singer    and composer   Anna   Lindenberger,   alias   Anna   Mignon,   got   to   know each   other   after   their   musical   studies   and   as   of   2010   they   began to   create   a   joint   musical   program.   Lyrical   melodies   are   tastefully combined   with   the   dazzling   world   of   jazz   resulting   in   catchy tunes.   The   collaborative   arrangements   range   from   minimalist instrumental    fragility    to    colourful,    musically    dense    climaxes: sometimes   delicate   and   fragile,   sometimes   strongly   rhythmic, the   lyrics   at   centre   stage   tell   of   moments   which   get   under   the skin;   whether   of   the   exhilarated   sense   of   security   that   can   be found   in   a   hug,   the   longing   for   a   past   love   or   the   self-discovery phase    experienced    during    adolescence.    The    songs    invite    to dream or think, but also make one smile every now and then. In   2015,   the   band   presented   their   first   CD,   an   EP   called   "Little Bird",   in   the   former   “Wiener   Ostclub”.   The   title   song   of   the   CD appeared   on   the   international   platform   BALCONY   TV   and   in   the show   "Salon   Schräg"   on   SCHAU   TV;   additionally,   the   Viennese radio   station   RADIO   ORANGE   presented   the   project   as   well   as the debut EP.

Together    they    developed    Anna    Mignon’s    songs    with    great sensitivity,   especially   in   respect   of   the   lyrics‘   content   for   you   can also   find   Anna‘s   musical   settings   of   admired   poems   by   Emily Dickinson,     Emily     Brontë     or     Wilhelm     Busch     among     her compositions. The   music   of   the   Viennese   duo   mostly   moves   in   the   quiet,   jazzy appearing    tapestry    of    sounds.    Melodic    bass    lines    and    warm piano   sounds,   sometimes   supplemented   with   a   synthesizer,   form a    basis    for    lyric    and    strong    melodies,    sung    powerfully    and expressively with Anna’s dark voice.
