Biliana Voutchkova's first original music album Modus of Raw is an important landmark in her career. It is the first official documentation of her highly individual musical language, combining the sound of the violin and the voice - work that started as a natural development of her investigation of new and different soundings and developed into a strong personal artistic signature. The album was recorded during Biliana's residency in Poschiavo/ Switzerland in 2015. Three weeks of concentrated work, inspired by the great outdoors in the heart of the Alps brought a very specific aesthetic to the music making and concluded in the birth of Modus of Raw. The official release was in September 2016, followed by a number of broadcasts and reviews - here a short selection:

“…A courageous, uncompromising, ultimately successful work.”
Bertl , FreiStil #70

“…her solo record is a sensation. …glimmering performance, one of the most personal and beautiful albums I have heard in a very long time. a solo performance carried by necessity. this will be a classic album…" Thomas Millroth, Orkesterjournalen

“Biliana Voutchkova came from heaven… …music of extraordinary imagination, sensitivity and artistic audacity, which effectively protects against self-restraint in the arduous process of building the history of this (improvised) music.”
Andrzej Nowak, Spontaneous Music Tribune

“And Jesus, this one goes directly to your soul!… In seven improvisations Voutchkova unfolds a world of very physical, uncompromising, improvisations. Abstract but also very expressive and
dramatic, with lots of energy concentrated in each movement. The timbres, sound and colours she creates on her violin are of a baffling beauty!” DM, Vital Weekly

“…Voutchkova simply has  an original manuscript to which we are unaccustomed. But when her speech coordinates with your perception, you will experience a remarkable adventure.”
His Voice, Z.K. SLABÝ
