«I create my compositions from a symphonic-orchestral viewpoint, where the sounds are my orchestra, and I arrange them in time and space to give them form.» - Noémi Büchi


Noémi Büchi’s first EP for -OUS, ‘Hyle’ is a reference to an ancient Greek term for ‘matter’ (fire, water, air, and earth) which receives form and determination from outside itself. Balancing elements of electroacoustic music, neo-classical composition, and sound design, ‘Hyle’ unfolds in three compositions that translate ‘matter’ into music. ‘We all are matter, and music is matter. My compositions convert personal and collective memories of trauma and joy into music rooted in emotive resonances and intellectual euphoria’ she explains.

Representing a conscious return to harmonics, Noémi Büchi develops the musicality of ‘Hyle’ through chordal aggregations and interstitial spaces. Her pieces are informed by a classical understanding of compositional forms, structures, and textures, transposed to experimental electronic music.

Büchi explores the potential of consonance and dissonance, contrasts rhythmic physicality with disruption and playfully emphasizes irregularities, creating an expansive listening experience marked by detail and elevation. ‘Hyle’is a prelude to her debut album ‘Matter’, which will be released on -OUS in 2022.

Composer & sound artist Noémi Büchi explores electronic and symphonic maximalism. Her music is defined by a delicate synthesis of textural rhythms and electronic-orchestral abstraction. Her 2019 debut EP ‘Matière’, released through Light of Other Days, drew widespread acclaim. In 2020, she released a second EP ‘Prismic Passages’ on the Leipzig-based tape label Visible Dinner. -OUS will be releasing her debut album ‘Matter’ and its prelude ‘Hyle’ in 2022, as well as the debut album of Musique Infinie, a collaboration between Noémi Büchi and Feldermelder.
