CHINZILLA is a new electronic dance-project of composer and trombonist Josephine Nagorsnik. Wrist-grabbing grooves and floating spheres are interchanging and invite you to a musical journey of the psychedelic kind.

The tracks were written and produced over a period of more than five years, while studying composition and Computermusik, until in 2017, CHINZILLA was formed to put the music live on stage. In the beginning, the line-up involved the tenor-sax player on bass and electronics Timothée Giddey and drummer Baptiste Maier. The decision to go solo again, was due to practical reasons. Instead of having a fixed band, the idea and interest went rather towards a solo-project with featuring of other artists, to be more flexible and discover new aspects of this music.

In 2020 CHINZILLA was joined for a series of concerts by drummer Jim Black under the name "CHINZILLA vs. EmC Splinter" (see video below).

"Und Drummer Jim Black unterfütterte als EmC Splinter das wütend energische Poetry-Universum der Diseuse und Posaunistin Josephine Nagorsnik, genannt Chinzilla, mit mächtigem, groovefundiertem Pathos. Das war Punk auf Ebene zwei, ein futuristisches Projekt, das über die pandemische Trance mit exzessivem Intellekt hinwegfegte."
Ralf Dombrowski in der Jazzzeitung ("Das Jazzfestival Saalfelden als Weekender – Durchhaltewillen kann so schön klingen" vom 28.08.2020)
