IGNATZ + MIAUX
A mistress of elaborate keyboard shenanigans.
Miaux makes her Casio sing like a lover at dusk to an unrequited love on a sultry summer day. Her songs, all the while haunting, instrumental and merciless, keep the flame of loner sentiment forever burning. By daylight you'll find miaux under the name of Mia Prce. Born in Sarajevo, she composes her musical mysteries in Antwerp, where she released 3 LPs on Dennis Tyfus' Ultra Eczema label.
Bram Devens named his alter ego after a comic book villain whose attacks are mistaken for declarations of love. It is no surprise then, that Ignatz's barely improvised compositions sound like loving adoration and lamentation at the same time. With his acoustic guitar, he interweaves sporadic effects, percussions, keyboard patterns and his gravelly voice into a type of blues that appears to emanate from a dimension where different rules about time and space apply.
