With their current album Island no.16 – Memories of Future Landscapes, Sabiwa invites listeners on a journey that connects their past with the future. The musical starting point was old recordings, many of which Sabiwa made in Taiwan, where she grew up and where she still returns often today. The music sounds as archaic as it is futuristic. “We always look at the past from a future perspective, we are not the same today as we were then,” Sabiwa explains when asked. Island no.16 – Memories of Future Landscapes also tells of the tense political relationship with China.

Sabiwa will bring this multilayered network of relationships to the stage for the first time at ORF musikprotokoll together with Nathan L. in an audiovisual performance. Several self-made instruments will be used, including a completely new wind instrument that can only be played by two performers at the same time. Sabiwa says: “Everything we do automatically has an influence on others, so it is here too, music can only be created together.”
