toechter + Philipp Johann Thimm

silent green presents

toechter is a german-danish band researching the use of string instruments in sound design. toechter drew the attention with the release of their critically acclaimed debut album Zephyr in 2022 - dancing at the outer edges of what we would normally expect from music made with violin, viola, cello and voice. The three musicians in toechter – Marie-Claire Schlameus, Lisa Marie Vogel and Katrine Grarup Elbo – all grew up immersed in the conventions of classical music. They rejoiced in learning everything there is to know about these instruments in order to fashion a new way forward for them. Descending into a mutant acoustic and digital netherworld, toechter creates imaginative landscapes, pulsating beats and colourful musical mosaics. toechter’s second studio album Epic Wonder will be released in February 2024 on the Berlin based label Morr Music.

Over the past decade, Philipp Johann Thimm has abetted and instigated numerous musical explorations with various musicians in and around his home base of Berlin. He has displayed his talents as a multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer on projects ranging from his first band ABBY, his ongoing collaboration with Sascha Ring under the Apparat banner, various theatre projects, music for art installations, a well as big and small screen soundtracking, and they both were nominated for a Grammy in 2019 for 'Best Electronic Album' with Apparat's LP5.
