The Danish vocal group POSTYR gives vocal music a facelift with their five voices, one computer, and catchy melodies. The group has become known worldwide for their characteristic and evocative sound, combining five captivating voices with sampled beats and heartfelt songwriting, also making POSTYR’s live performances unprecedented in the international music landscape.
The singers in POSTYR grew up with vocal and choral music and they met in the inspiring musical environment around the world-renowned Danish choir, Vocal Line, and the award-winning vocal group, Vox 11. POSTYR was founded in 2009 out of a desire and an ambition to innovate and generate vocal music through the development of newly composed music written specifically for this type of ensemble.
”The voice is probably the one instrument in the world, which has the most varied timbre. Some are beautiful and others are sharp and edgy, like so much else in life. If we want the music to reflect, who we are, we have to be honest and make room for beauty, enthusiasm, sadness, the hard and the brittle. Somewhere between the words, the tones, the melodies, the natural immediacy of the voices and the mechanical precision of the computer we chase a nerve and an expression that is hard to put into words but which everybody can feel when we nail it. That’s POSTYR at our best” – Tine Fris-Ronsfeld, soprano.
