After their highly acclaimed debut album „Time Rewind“, Wanja and Lucia come to the stage with arrangements for large ensemble in a promising cast – the LIUN + THE SCIENCE FICTION ORCHESTRA.

Their obsessive exploration of the interplay between musical genres seamlessly merges analog and the digital compositional methods. Slavin’s complex, multilayered arrangements of dark, forceful beats and fragile melodic contours contrast with Lucia’s frank and translucent voice, and make this project a stunningly layered, orchestral and self-reflexive sonic universe, whose debut album Time Rewind Kurt Rosenwinkel called “an instant classic.” In a live setting, they can be spotted as a quintet, a large ensemble, and a piano trio. ” In a live setting, they can be spotted as a quintet and a large ensemble. In 2020 the band collaborated with the EOS Chamber Orchestra, and together they played scaled up arrangements of the LIUN material. Their sophomore record, titled the Lilly of the Nile, will be released in the fall of this year on Heartcore records.
