Enjoy this week's Orange Twist with the wonderful cellist, Marie Spaemann and discover her unique musical world!

We all know HELLO STAGE’s favorite color! What’s yours?

Ivory white to wear. And green to look at :)

What was the best advice a teacher ever gave you?

Go for a walk!

How has your practice changed with time?

Nowadays my days are getting more similar to the ones I had in high school. Quite packed and therefore sometimes too little time to practice. But somehow, that time is very precious, appreciated and used with much more focus than in my studying days.

What do you think is the most important trait of a successful artist in today’s modern world?


How much time do you spend every day on Facebook, twitter, and which other ways do you use to promote yourself?

To be honest, I am mostly using Facebook as a tool for promotion, but rarely every day.

And since I just mentioned "authenticity" - I do find it hard to combine this with the idea of selling a product. But that's with no doubt what our time is asking for:)

Tell us about your new music video and the project behind it!

The video to the song came quite naturally. It was time to put something out there where people can actually see how a song is developed when using a loop station.

At the same time I felt that the intimacy of the song didn't need an extra story to be told but maybe a subtle quality of movement underlining it's content.

Luckly I found the perfect woman to go through with that idea. Cornelia Voglmayr is not only a wonderful choreographer and artistic director but a very sensitive artist who felt the song and it's message from the very beginning.

How and where did the inspiration for this musical direction happen? Was is something that you always wanted to do or did it emerge later on?

I suppose there were different external influences - life changing trips and acquaintances a couple of years ago - that slowly uncovered an unknown urge and joy of creativity that I am still learning to follow and trust.

You are passionate about both your classical and your singer-songwriter projects. How is your approach different to both, or where are the similarities?

It took quite a while until I could really stand up for the fact that I am doing both. But only because I must have seen them as very different things, when it's actually all music.

With time I have become very thankful about the accuracy of classical musicians I can bring into other projects and the creative openness with which I can now look at a work of classical music. But it is definitely still a working progress considering time management, focus and confidence:)

What's next?

It's fun and always exciting to sing, play and record as a one women band. I am very much looking forward to performing and traveling with this project, to keep writing and recording. When being alone in a creative process one can try out things endlessly. At the same time there are a few collaborations coming up that I am very happy about. It is simply always enriching to be in some sort of exchange - doesn't even have to be music.

Where do you go to for inspiration?

Life :)
