Golden Diskó Ship is Theresa Stroetges, a Berlin-based multi-instrumentalist and video artist who performs live as a one-girl orchestra. Her imaginative soundscapes, shifting from delicate melodic lines steeped in nostalgia to the feedback arcs and textured distortion of machine abuse, evoke lucid dreams and have won critical praise for their fresh, eclectic collages of electronic and acoustic sound.
Her debut solo album, ‘Prehistoric Ghost Party’ was produced at the legendary Faust Studio, home of the Klangbad label, and her tracks have also been released on Monika Enterprise’s City Splits #1 and The Wire Tapper’s June 2012 compilation.
On her 3rd album ‘Imaginary Bots Golden Diskó Ship enlarges her pop/experimental sound cosmos for a new component: bass. The album was conceived during her stay in Lisbon in the summer of 2015 where the multi-instrumentalist found plenty of inspiration in traditional and experimental music. These elements left their traces not only as field recordings but also led the classically trained musician to re-consider the use of her former main instrument viola which is more present than before. One dominant compositional element of ‘Imaginary Boys’ is a deliberate use of time, influenced by the perception of electronic music and techno.
