In her compositional practice ML Buch sketches up her music in an almost architectural way. The raw material is generated through immersion in playing and assembling as a way of triggering random magic. Her live performances, both in solo and group formations, is reflective of her love of combining 7-string electric guitars in open tunings with synthetic instruments and electronic experiments. ML Buch has performed at the likes of Pitchfork Paris Avant-Garde, Roskilde Festival, Fuchsbau Arts Festival, and the sound and vision programme at CPH:DOX, as well as performing as part of Laurie Anderson’s Talking Choir project. ML Buch has done commissioned work with poet Ingvild Lothe and contributed to releases by artists like CTM, Jura and Astrid Sonne, with whom she’s also performed live.
