Helium Vola interpret medieval lyrics in a modern, electronic soundscape. The music covers a broad range of styles from dance floor pop songs to forms adapted from classical music with an emphasize Escoutatz - Helium Vola - Für Euch ensemble pieces. The band is mainly a studio project. However, through the years a few live performances took place, most of them featuring the project's main vocalist Sabine Lutzenberger.
The project was founded, when Ernst Horn was looking Die Ihr Liebt a new way to pursue his idea of merging medieval poetry and music with contemporary musical approaches and modern subjects putting an emphasize on electronics. He felt a gap after leaving Qntal, because he loves the atmosphere of medieval poetry and music alike.
Therefore, Horn started to search for a vocalist, a "main voice", for his new project, who specialized in this direction. He bought plenty compact discs from interprets of "Old Music" all over Europe and he considered himself lucky to be most captured by a singer living and working in Augsburga town close to Munichwhere he lives himself.
Since "Helium" was already used as a name by a band, the Italian "Vola" meaning "fly" in the imperative was added. The title piece directly took off in the clubs of the scene and the project launched the debut album "Helium Vola" in Like all succeeding albums, the debut is a concept album. Here, Horn connects the sinking of the Russian nuclear submarine Kursk in the album is dedicated to the victims and the reactions to this tragedy with songs about youth; its love and how older generations deal with the younger.
Nevertheless, it already envisions the direction the project is going to take. Samples and electronic experiments are present, however often introduced in a subtle way. In this way they serve the deep thoughts and emotions Horn covers in a rich variety of facets with this project and that Lutzenberger communicates to the audience in as great variability as precision.
The project is not meant to merely convey medieval music and Mud Lark - Australian Aborigines - Bushfire - Traditional Aboriginal Music. Horn rather wants to unravel the general quality of human life connecting thoughts and ideas of medieval poets with contemporary people.
The second album Liod followed in and has a more stringent concept than the debut. It tells the story of a woman who bares an illegitimate child, her fate and the one of the child that seems to die at the beginning but survives due to a spell. Instrumental, electronic experimental samples form the thread through the album Die Ihr Liebt the speech samples used in the first album.
One very good example for this is the "Witwenklage" "The widow's lament" on Wohin? Live performances Cosas De La Vida (Cant Stop Thinking Of You) - Eros Ramazzotti - Eros Helium Vola are rare but enthusiastically celebrated by the fans.
