Museum of No Art :: “Minimal Default on a Clear Blue Day”

As Museum of No Art, Germany’s Mona Steinwidder creates sounds that emerge like mirages in a shimmering heatwave. Using a curious palette of samplers, synths, and clarinet, Steinwidder’s compositions float between genre boundaries, neither ambient nor beat-driven but softly pulsating. There is a stateliness to her melodies that recalls the music of Tragedy-era Julia Holter, with a similar use of daydreamy vocals as yet another texture in her patchwork of gurgling arpeggios, bass hums, and echoing horns . . .
