Formed out of two collaborative sessions on three analogue synthesizers, musicians Sofie Birch and Johan Carøe crafted their collaborative album Repair Techniques as a spontaneous, yet delicate ambient piece. As the title implies, the work is a soothing balm for disruptive and chaotic life events, a testament to putting the pieces together through love and support from friends and loved ones. Faint echoes of new age shimmer in this gentle meditation on healing and care that remains engrossing and moving throughout its eleven tracks. Bringing along a collection of synthesizers and analogue instruments, the duo will re-shape and reperform this airy, intricate and intimate album in The Hague’s Lutherse Kerk.
Sofie Birch & Johan Carøe perform on Friday 8 April.
