PENUMBRA by Christian Lillinger/Elias Stemeseder strives to manifest diverse currents of contemporary practices and utopias in sound production, acoustically and electronically, both in the studio and in concert. They make use of compositional and production approaches from a wide range of geographical and temporal locations, and through a  synthesis of these forge a radically modern sonic idiom that is both free of templates and rich in references.


STEMESEDER - LILLINGER is an electro-acoustic field of tension. Floating freely and without genre

designations, the producer duo inhabits myriad border regions of contemporary music, focusing on sonic,

compositional and thematic multidimensionality. With ANTUMBRA, the award-winning artists continue to

expand their body of work.

Procedural methods employed in their previous works PENUMBRA and UMBRA are revisited, newly

assembled, integrated and expanded. Plucked, percussive and electronic instruments, references to sample

culture, serialism or folk musics, and the elaborate post-production work imbue ANTUMBRA with its

enormous richness of color, sonic saturation and utopian vision.

To STEMESEDER - LILLINGER, ANTUMBRA (pre-shadow; from Latin ante, „before“, the region from which

the occulting body appears entirely within the disc of the light source) is the realization of another visibility

of what has not yet been shown and seen.
