ABATTOIR – Audrey Chen & Robert Van Heumen

ABATTOIR is a duo collaboration between Baltimore local musician Audrey Chen (cello/voice) and Robert Van Heumen (live sampling/electronics) from Amsterdam, NL. Rooted in free improvisation and experimental electronics, ABATTOIR performs music where Chen’s intense vocals and intricate cello playing are sampled, transformed and ripped apart by Van Heumen’s vigorous laptop actions. Together, they are able to create a deeply sensitive communication infused with a boundless feeling of release and letting go.
