Susana P. Correia R.I.P.

The death has occurred of Susana P. Correia of Zwischenwelt. While she died on the 4th October 2017, the news only reached the wider public in the last few days after fellow group members, Beta Evers, Penelope Martin and Heinrich Mueller, wrote online tributes to her. Initially when Zwischenwelt (which translates as in-between world) was launched on MySpace in 2007, Susana was the most mysterious and least known member of the group but in time she would become much better known to fans due to an interview she did with Derek Walmsley for The Wire's  'Adventures in Modern Music' show on Resonance FM in 2010. This rare appearance was to promote their debut album, Paranormale Aktivit├Ąt, on Rephlex and is well worth listening to as she goes into great detail about the theme of the album and how their collaboration proceeded (including a full group get together in Germany in 2008). In 2016 Clone Aqualung reissued the album on vinyl for the first time and Susana was instrumental in making and appears in a new video for 'Clairvoyant' to promote it.

Susana accomplished many other things in her short life, she was also an acupuncturist and healer who had volunteered her time in Nepal. In the world of music she was known as a DJ and producer and in the past worked under the name Su:Real. In 2004 she released a track under this name which came out of a collaboration with Rob F. You can read her online obituary here. I found this beautiful image of her by Alexia Rodriguez that she called 'Between Dimensions' on her MySpace profile. Everything I've written about Zwischenwelt on DRL to date can be assessed here.

She will be very missed. My deepest condolences to her family and friends.
