Project Agora — Miss C-Line X Rasumowsky Quartet
Project Agora is a post-genre festival founded in Basel that is supported by the Verein Project Agora. The festival represents a new Basel platform to create a dialogue between people of all ages, backgrounds, and preferences through music and to broaden their perception by offering new sound experiences by bringing new acoustic experiences to life.
Swiss vocalist, multi-instrumentalist rapper, and producer Miss C-Line has composed new works that synthesize her distinct musical identity with The Rasumowsky Quartet, allowing space for musical exploration by an ensemble that typically focuses on classical repertoire..
Miss C-Line, born Carolina Victoria Müller, grew up in Germany and Bern, Switzerland with parents who are both classical musicians. As a child, she played various classical instruments, even entering youth competitions. However, at age 12 she discovered Wu-Tang Clan, Nas and Biggie, and by age 14 she was already writing her own rap songs. Since then, she has completed a bachelor’s degree in jazz, and is currently enrolled in a jazz master’s program in Basel.
The Rasumowsky Quartet is dedicated to performing the great masterpieces, especially Russian quartet literature as well as modern and cross-genre works. this concert, the ensemble will be joined by bassist, producer, and composer James Iwa, who has worked with Miss C-Line in various projects. His music is heavily influenced by famous neo-soul names like D’Angelo, J Dilla, or Erykah Badu, as well as various 70’s funk records and present-day music genres.
