Iku (aka Johanna Odersky) divides her time between music and sculpture. Her audio work layers and carefully weaves associative samples into a complex entanglement of emotionally-charged sounds. The Frankfurt-based musician and visual artist playfully balances ambient elements with thumping club beats and creates a fascinating mesh of poetic French lyrics, hypnagogic piano progressions, alien insect sounds, and horror movie soundscapes. Odersky’s second EP Body Horror was released on our own Creamcake label, in a haunting exploration of internal versus external worlds and the mechanisms of inclusion, exclusion and domestication they reveal.
