High-pitched voices, unfamiliar harmonies, rumbling and raw rhythms: We are listening to the musical output of Berlin-based multidisciplinary artist, Vika Kirchenbauer. Under the moniker COOL FOR YOU she tends to «decompose harmonies as colonizers». What she means by that becomes obvious if you look at the sampling strategies on her most recent EP, MOOD MANAGEMENT (Creamcake 2017). There – as in the tracks of her previous EP – she processes recordings of Sacred Harp gatherings, a religious choral tradition from the US South.
