Florina Speth, born 1983 in the mountains near Salzburg, started playing the cello and piano at the age of 6 and began studying music at the University Mozarteum Salzburg when she was just 11. She won several prices playing solo and string quartet ensembles, was part of orchestras like Bayerisches Landesjugend Orchester and Salzburger Junge Philarmonie all over Europe. Beside of classical music she was always keenly interested in contemporary music and was part of performing ensembles in lots of world premieres. After finishing school and her cello education she studied cognitive musicology, neurolinguistics and music therapy in Cologne. Since that she was obsessed of creating music electronically and started Schloss Mirabell. She plays in different constellations with musicians like Nicholas Bussmann, Dasha Rush, Niels Böttcher or Maximilian Stadler.Since passing the classical world she decided for new approach towards music in which she takes role of a virtual conductor and composer at once. Instrument groups given in orchestras are replaced by unknown sound characters that listen to each other, exchange, react, adopt dynamical shifts and are acting freely- in parts the conducting composer cannot control. In her compositions these sound characters step into fine grained dialogues between her cello, bleeping spheres of electronic humming birds and multi time codes. These scenarios take place in pitch black carpets of dead butterflies falling, simmering shapes of poly oscillations against luminance or in vacuums of icy dust. The sound intends to create patience for unspeakable things that glamorize time- namely music. Her album Ghosthour Diaries is a musical narrative of those unspeakable perspectives on things. As all pieces were composed after midnight during ghost hours it is an intimate view on states before sleep. The theme promenade which is placed after each piece stands for a time of afterglow and reflection for the uprising. In current live performances she is working with a set up consisting of laptop, cello, voice and a variety of sound robots.
