Part of futuretense

Supple strings, textured vocals and digital excursions: hear arresting productions from the composer-producer at a free Friday evening gig.

There’s a naivety to Josin’s productions that defies description. Her debut EP Epilogue was a soaring, moving introduction, a strikingly original fusion of neo-classical textures and inquisitive electronics.

Born in Cologne to opera singer parents, she initially opted for studies in medicine, before dropping out. ‘I always wanted to make music,’ she says. ‘But I never did dare to do it.’

One thread that consistently moves through her work are gorgeous classical elements: her treatment of melody on the supple, piano-driven ‘Once Apart’, her exploration of tone on ‘Feral Thing’, and the inclusion of a string quartet on the title track.

In the Blank Space points to the future while looking back to her past.
