NORLYZ – the electro-acoustic live band unites the warmth and fragility of acoustic instruments with the precision and power of the electronics: captivating grooves rich in fine sonic details, inspired by techno, world music and jazz. Guiding the audience NORLYZ embarks on a journey through parallel worlds, mystical lands and cinematic soundscapes. While following an intricate dramaturgy, the project leaves space for creative improvisation between the 4 musicians aiming to elevate each other and the overall experience.

NORLYZ is the further development of the duo SCHATTENSPIEL, where producer Paul David Heckhausen combined live cello with electronic dance music and brought it on stage as an audiovisual experience.
SCHATTENSPIEL played frequently on festivals like Distortion Copenhagen (DK), Eurosonic (NL) or Detect Classic at Funkhaus Berlin as well as club shows at Sisyphos and Mensch Meier Berlin to mention a few. Several singles as well as an EP were released on the labels “Rebellion der Träumer” and “Traum Schallplatten” in the past years.

Philipp Püschel – Trumpet, Flügelhorn

Coming from live music and inspired by playing as a DJ, this project was the logical result for me: the warmth and fragility of acoustic instruments meet the precision and energy of the electronics.

I compose, produce and play live with NORLYZ.
