Ashia Bison Rouge carefully takes the listener into the deep dark woods of a sci-fi fairytale and out into the arms of a beloved friend with her captivating, expressive voice and cello playing. Along with her command of looping pedals and effects she creates distant journeys of electronic, pulsating, multi-layered orchestral pieces and then deconstructs them down into ambient, classical, and familiar nostalgic songs.

“With virtuosic arpeggios, pizzicato passages, and lowered bass, orchestral textures and the sound of a multiplied instrument is created with the aid of effects.“ (Stereo, May 2016)

In 2018, she had the honor of bringing her works to the Shanghai World Music Festival in performances and workshops, alongside a tour in China. Next to her solo project she has performed for and/or with Cirque du Soleil, Holzmarkt Berlin, Chamaleon Theater, Portland Cello Project, Amanda Palmer and the Wintergarten Variete in Berlin. In the Spring of 2015, Ashia Bison Rouge had the honor to perform her solo works with the Salem Chamber Orchestra in Salem, Oregon.
