The singer Taya Chernyshova and the guitarist Roman Gorich met while still at school in Moscow. And even then, as a duo, they already played unusual music under the name TAZ CHERNILL, music that refused to be categorized in any way. Fearlessly, the two crossed Mussorgsky, Shostakovich and Prokofiev with folklore and pop music of the time. Moving to Cologne and expanding to form a quartet only served to heighten the extraordinary amalgam of TAZ CHERNILL: the result is a shimmering creative cosmos drawing its energy from analogous and digital sources. Daring, jarring juxtapositions and poetic-lyrical homogeneity make shades of grey between the extremes audible, for example when Chernyshova’s voice changes between a girlish soprano timbre and a smoky contralto huskiness within seconds: shrill, yet full of longing and profundity.
