Biografie

Soap&Skin ist der Künstler- und Projektname der österreichischen Musikerin, Sängerin und Schauspielerin Anja Franziska Plaschg (* 5. April 1990 in Gnas, Oststeiermark).

Anja Plaschg wuchs im kleinen südoststeirischen Ort Gnas auf, wo ihre Eltern eine Schweinemast betreiben. Sie spielt seit ihrem sechsten Lebensjahr Klavier. Mit 14 begann sie mit Geige und wandte sich parallel der elektronischen Musik zu. In Graz besuchte sie die Höhere technische Bundeslehranstalt für Grafik und brach diese im Alter von 16 ab, um nach Wien zu ziehen. Dort begann sie ein Kunststudium an der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien in der Meisterklasse von Daniel Richter und brach dieses mit 18 Jahren wieder ab.

Bereits nach einigen Konzertauftritten galt Plaschg schnell als „Wunderkind“. Sie interpretierte 2008 in dem Theaterstück Nico - Sphinx aus Eis von Werner Fritsch zuerst in den Berliner Sophiensaelen, dann im Brut im Wiener Künstlerhaus die deutsche Sängerin Nico und spielte darin unter anderem das auf ihrer ersten EP erscheinende Janitor Of Lunacy. Das erste vollständige Album von Soap&Skin ist unter dem Titel Lovetune for Vacuum im März 2009 erschienen. Musikkritiker und Medien sahen in ihr frühzeitig die größte Hoffnungsträgerin der österreichischen Popmusik.

    not sure if everybody is aware of this: Anja is performing as part of the ensemble for "Romeo & Juliet" at the Thalia Theater in Hamburg. We went to see it yesterday: wow. It felt like someone wrote a screenplay around her songs :-) Anyway, yesterday's performance was recorded by German television for 3sat. They had a technical issue with one of the cameras. Hopefully they were able to fix it. Broadcast date is 29 November (8:15pm). All of you who don't feel like sitting through a 200 minute play, you should watch at least the first 15 minutes or so (until after the first song). It was a goosebumps moment.

    Nothing like Anja's music, but I still think it's something someone here can enjoy.

    You're welcome cellarstella. I was eager to share her with Soap&Skin fans as she's the only artist i've heard that was able to touch me in a somewhat similar way to how Anja does.. However, it looks as though we won't have long to wait possibly. Anja obviously has something brewing. "Tybalt" is beautiful in all of it's simplicity. By the end of it my face was almost screwed up (a regular occurrence with Anja's music), it was just so touching. The last few closing chords almost killed me. Also have a look at the other videos uploaded on that channel from that concert. Her performance of "Cry Wolf" was the best ever. My words wouldn't do it justice.. but her howls at the end, it's like something from another planet. She really is extraordinary, so sincere.

    Just a heads up to you guys about an artist i've just discovered that I think you may appreciate. It's incredibly hard to find anyone alive who's music is able to touch me in a similar way that Anja's does. Lisa Morgenstern comes very close though. Listen to her songs "Lieber Tod", "My Room" and the instrumental piece "Under Water". The music is exceptional, achingly beautiful stuff. Her voice is powerful and dark, perhaps not as otherworldly in tone as Anja's but there are still moments of dissonance. On some songs her vocals can come across as slightly theatrical (dare I say inflected) but it's something I was easily able to look past as the music overwhelmed me. I think she's a great artist to check out whilst we try to patiently wait for Anja to release something new. Lisa's debut album "Amphibian" is well worth a try for any Soap&Skin fan.

    I love instrumentals but I don't really like her vocals... But instrumentals are really really good.
