    Kosmorama

    Kosmorama
    Gregor Lener (trp, FX)
    Christian Grothe (live sampling, electronics, synths)

    Kosmorama is a project by the musicians Christian Grothe and Gregor Lener. The duo are improvising pieces inspired by modern and old school science fiction with the use of acoustic and electronic instruments. Lener plays trumpet with electronic manipulation and Grothe uses self made sampler instruments and synths. A journey through the vastness of the universe and beyond.

    FOYL AKA

    Maja Mágedli – voc, comp
    Mathei Florea – keys, comp
    Conrad Steinhoff – e-bass
    Arno Grussendorf – guitar
    Rafat Muhammad – drums

    Mysterious dreams, special characters, fascinating places – there is no end for profound resources to inspire a remarkable and unique band name.
    Well in this uplifting case two best friends were eating some terrible burgers in a low-key ghosted fast food restaurant at 2 AM and accidentally found a phone application which generates invented band names.„Foyl aka” popped up, and bam, the baby was born.
    “Neo soul meets jazz”
    All songs of FOYL AKA are written by hungarian vocalist Maja Mágedli and estonian piano player Mathei Florea, the two have been lucky enough to discover that they inspire and perfectly complement each other’s musical approach in composing and arranging which clearly reflects in their repertoire too.
    The band furthermore consists Arno Grussendorf on guitar, Conrad Steinhoff on electric bass and David Guy on drums. Foyl Aka first met at the renowned Jazz Institute Berlin (UdK) and they have quickly realized how smooth, natural and thrilling it feels to create a soft yet grooving sound together. These compositions are influenced by mostly neo soul in a jazz context; though the group does not intend to limit its genres and is excited to build an own little world without clear musical boundaries.

    Ikua and Ryu


    Ikua Shim – vocal, looper
    Handong Ryu – Guitar

    Ikua & Ryu is a South Korean guitar-vocal duo based in Berlin. They think it’s painfully awkward to write this introduction themselves in the third person. Interestingly, this awkwardness and shyness are often the main motifs of what they sing about. Their music is influenced partly by western classical, jazz, and most importantly by Korean folk music and K-pop back in the good old days.

    Hawkins/Forde/Dinsdale

    Xina Hawkins – Viola
    Declan Forde – Piano
    Jordan Dinsdale – Drums

    Improvised Music

    Australian violist Alexina Hawkins lives in Berlin and has performed, recorded and toured in various ensembles including the Kammerakademie Potsdam, Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin and the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, appearing throughout Europe, North & South America, Asia and Australia. Alexina has performed solo and chamber music at Bang On A Can Summer Festival (USA), Festival Opera Barga (Italy), Canberra International Music Festival, Bangalow Festival, and Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music, amongst others. She has presented two solo recitals in Berlin’s weekly series for contemporary music, “unerhörte musik”, and was invited to the Flying Carpet Festival, a performing arts festival for children on the Turkish/Syrian border in 2020 (festival postponed to 2022). She has improvised, recorded and performed with an eclectic array of musicians including Anna Morley, Agnes Obel and Damon Albarn. Alexina co-founded two energetic ensembles (Phoenix Trio and sextet “hear now berlin”) with musicians who share her idealistic, energetic and open-minded approach to music-making.
    Alexina studied viola with Tor Fromyhr, Caroline Henbest, Chris Moore and William Coleman, at the ANU School of Music (Canberra), Australian National Academy of Music (Melbourne) and privately in Berlin. More recently, she has attended courses taught by Tatjana Masurenko and Simone Jandl.
    Declan Forde was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and has been based in Berlin since 2014 working as an improvising musician and composer. Early in his musical development Forde became interested in improvisation, being exposed to the music of Cecil Taylor and Marilyn Crispell and is involved in various aspects of the Jazz tradition, Free Improvisation and New Music.
    He has worked frequently with dancers and interdisciplinary artists.
    Current projects include a trio with violist Xina Hawkins and drummer Jordan Dinsdale which blurs the lines between Jazz, Neue Musik and Noise. Forde is active as an improviser performing solo piano and in 2019 was invited Berliner Festspiele to perform as part of American artist Rashid Johnson’s installation Antoine’s Organ at Berlin’s Gropius Bau July-December 2019 (part of the exhibition Garden of Earthly Delights). Since 2016 Forde has been co-curating the monthly improvised music residency Practically Married with bassist James Banner at Donau115 in Berlin.
    Other projects as a sideman include James Banner’s USINE (featured in portraits and broadcasts by Deutschlandfunk Kultur and RBB Kultur), the trio FROG with violinist Fabiana Striffler and James Banner, and duo with American bassist Greg Cohen.
    Beyond the world of Jazz and improvised music, Forde has performed, toured and recorded for over ten years with the Scottish singer and artist Rachel Sermanni. He plays piano on her first release ‘The Bothy Sessions’ (2011) and ‘So it Turns’ (2019).
    Jordan Dinsdale is a young British drummer living in Berlin. He has studied Jimmy Cobb, Chris Cheek, Jimmy Wormworth and Greg Cohen. Since moving to Berlin in June 2019, Jordan has recorded a trio EP with the great Greg Cohen and Declan Forde entitled FORDE/COHEN/DINSDALE. In winter 2019, Jordan and bassist Yonatan Levi recorded in with Ofer Ganor and Ilya Lushtak, two companions on the New York scene. After meeting Doug Weiss in early 2020, they have already collaborated in different situations and share a love for the same beat. They currently have a trio with Béla Meinberg on piano. Some of Jordan’s teachers are Jimmy Cobb, Johnathan Blake and Eric McPherson.

    SoKo Steidle

    Rudi Mahall – bcl
    Henrik Walsdorff – as
    Jan Roder – ba
    Oli Steidle – dr, perc
    Ein gänzlich eigenwilliger und zeitloser Sound zeichnet die SoKo Steidle aus. Diese Viererbande hat sich komplett der freien Improvisation zugewandt, dieser aus musikhistorischer Notwendigkeit entstandenen Spielweise, die heute mehr denn je auf der ganzen Welt zelebriert wird.
    Der Namensgeber des Quartetts, Oliver Steidle, zählt schon seit geraumer Zeit zu den angesagtesten, versiertesten und zukunftsweisendsten Musikern der jungen europäischen Avantgarde. Er hat sich durch zahlreiche, prominente Engagements und seine eigenen Bands „Oli Steidle & the killing Popes, Oliwood und SoKo Steidle einen Platz im internationalen Konzertbetrieb gesichert. Er ist seit Jahren Mitglied bei „PHILM“, „Der Rote Bereich“,
    „Klima Kalima“ , spielte mit Peter Brötzmann, Andrea Parkins, Alexander von Schlippenbach, Aki Takase, Louis Sclavis, Tristan Honsinger, Trevor Dunn, u.v.a., jettet unaufhörlich durch die Welt, schreibt Musik, ist undogmatisch, hat zahlreiche Preise gewonnen und auf allen wichtigen, nennenswerten Festivals gespielt.
    Gleiches gilt für Rudi Mahall, Henrik Walsdorff und Jan Roder, die, wie Steidle, zur absoluten Speerspitze der internationalen Avantgarde zählen.
    Hier, im Kollektiv ausgezeichneter Musiker, entstehen enorm vielseitige und stimmungsvolle Klangkreationen, die von rivalisierender Konkurrenz bis hin zu harmonischem Zusammenspiel reichen. Spontaneität und Freiheit im Spiel und die benötigte Verantwortung, ohne Vorgaben zu gestalten, sind die wichtigen Grundlagen für diese Musik. Desweiteren bedarf es neben der Hingabe zur Sache, der Fähigkeit sich zusammen zu finden, d.h. eine
    optimale personelle Kombination im Ensemble zu finden.
    So überrascht es nicht, dass Alexander von Schlippenbach einst über SoKo Steidle schrieb:
    Sie spielen zusammen wie die Teufel und swingen wie Motherfucker.

    Urban Animal

    Tobias Krüger: Altsax

    Stephan Deller: Bass
    Ludwig Bormann: Synths, Sampling, FX
    Lukas Rutzen: Drums

    Man könnte sagen, Urban Animal ist eine Band.
    Man könnte sagen, diese Band spielt Musik, die atmet.
    Man könnte sagen, die Musik von Urban Animal zeichnet sich durch eine ruhige Kraft, ein diverses Klangbild und einen Wechsel zwischen auskomponierten und improvisierten Passagen aus.
    Mit all dem hätte man recht.
    Der Sound von Urban Animal wird maßgeblich von der Erweiterung einer Quartettbesetzung aus Drums, Kontrabass, Gitarre und Saxophon durch das Element elektronischer Klangerzeugung und (Live-)Sampling geprägt. In ihrer Musik entwickeln die fünf Musiker, eine intime Klangästhetik, die sich durch eine schwebende, oft melancholische Grundstimmung auszeichnet, mit der jedoch immer wieder gespielt wird.

    Thomas Franz

    Thomas Franz macht Musik mit Gitarre, mit Keyboard, und mit Erfolg. In seinen Liedern erzählt er absurde und ironische Geschichten: Über ein Tattoo, das von selbst immer weiterwächst. Über einen Hamster, der im Meer versinkt. Oder über einen Vulkan, der nicht mehr ausbrechen will – aber muss. Ernste Themen, aber Thomas Franz lässt sich nicht unterkriegen. Seine Musik ist wie Zwieback für die Seele: trocken, kratzig, aber auch irgendwie gesund.

    Pedro Martins Solo

    Pedro Martins – guitar, vocals, keys

    Vox is the second solo album from Brazilian guitarist Pedro Martins. The album comes after the release of one solo album, 2011’s Dreaming High. The album Vox was co-produced by Pedro Martins and Kurt Rosenwinkel and was released on Berlin-based independant label Heartcore Records. Since the release of his debut album, Pedro Martins has quietly but assuredly become one of the Brazil’s most respected artists. Still just twenty eight years old, he has lent his playing, songwriting and arranging talents to a range of stand out releases, from Brazil contemporaries such as Daniel Santiago, Michael Pipoquinha, Frederico Heliodoro and Antonio Loureiro to world-renowned jazz musicians like Kurt Rosenwinkel, Genevieve Artadi and on Thundercat’s It Is What It Is album.

    Pedro Martins is now focussing on his first album of new material in two years. The artist will release his third solo album through Heartcore Records next year.

    Reza Askari ROAR

    Stefan Karl Schmid – saxes
    Reza Askari – double bass
    Fabian Arends – drums

    The Trio of Cologne-based bassist and composer Reza Askari unites three young, virtuoso and most interesting protagonists of the current European jazz- and improvised music scene.
    Together with Stefan Karl Schmid on saxophones and Fabian Arends on drums, Askari has created a homogeneously, warm and round- sounding group, fully loaded with high energy and constant sake to experiment.
    All three musicians are equal partners of interaction, therefore the three- dimensional band sound is not missing a harmony instrument.
    The musical foundation of the group consists of friendship, trust and the attempt of always finding new ways of musical expression.
    Playing with structures and forms in union with traditional values of jazz music makes Roar an exciting and intensive listening experience.
    So far the trio has toured all over Germany, Europe, Colombia and Indonesia.
    Roar released their second studio album in spring 2020 on Berlin-based label QFTF.

    “Mangy chamber punk jazz”

    What seems to be pure anarchy is in fact carefully choreographed music that constantly pulls the rug from under you: the bass clarinet can be anything from a bass instrument to a solo singer, the guitar takes the rhythm but also the bass or solo parts, while the drums deftly link all these elements.
    This is devil-may-care music, a hilarious tightrope walk between insanity and precision.

    Contemporary Jazz mit genreübergreifenden Einflüssen – das ist der Sound des Daniel Hirth Quartetts.
    Bestehend aus dem Gitarristen und Namensgeber Daniel Hirth, dem Tenorsaxophonisten Max Rademacher, der Bassistin Lisa Wulff und dem Schlagzeuger Moritz Hamm, verbindet die aus Hamburg stammende Band Klänge und Rhythmen aus verschiedenen musikalischen Welten.

Described by The Wire as “impressive” and “original,” his musical work collides—and sometimes exists wholly inside of—idioms like classical, jazz, electronic, experimental pop and rock, and improvised music. He’s performed/premiered music across the US and in Europe and shared stages with established and emerging international luminaries alike. His poetry appears or is forthcoming in The Paris Review, Poetry Northwest, Prelude, and elsewhere, and he studied composition and poetry at Yale.

    GRAVID


    Valentin Gerhardus – piano
    Jacob Mundt – bass
    Marius Wankel – drums

    Gravid – the danish word for pregnant – is our attempt on fertilizing sound, trying to make music feel like music. The obscure line is never in the same place, and through listening and blend, we lure the music out. Join us on a trip of overtones, with a healthy dose of irregular timbre-vitamins. Completely improvised – it will probably feel weird in the good way!

    “NGT” Trio


    Hugo Fernandez – e-guitar/effects
    Roland Fidezius – e-bass/effects
    Augustin Strizzi – drums

    NGT is the meeting of three musicians with a vision of contemporary jazz. Music that draws on the tradition of jazz and other music with a sometimes raw and experimental spirit… their sounds are thoughtful and take us into unexpected soundscapes.
    This new unique band presents mainly original compositions, but also some arrangements of jazz standards.
    https://www.hugofernandez.net/
    http://www.rolandfidezius.de/
    http://www.agustinstrizzi.com/

    Hugo Fernandez – Guitarist
    Hugo Fernandez is a Mexican jazz musician who has already released three albums with his compositions, has participated in festivals and clubs in America, Spain and is increasingly making a name for himself in the German and European jazz scene. After living in Madrid for 12 years, he has now settled in Berlin where he collaborates with a rich variety of musicians.
    His album “Cosmogram” (Origin Records), together with drummer Antonio Sánchez, was very well received by the public and received excellent reviews from Rollingstone Magazine, Jazztimes, El País and Downbeat Magazine, which rated “Cosmogram” as one of the best albums of 2015.

    Roland Fidezius – E-Bass lives in Berlin, Germany, as a bassplayer (Acoustic and Electric) and composer. He is an important part of the Berlin-scene and also teams up with many great musicians in Europe and abroad. Several recordings and performances on many festivals in Europe, the US, Canada and Africa show him playing with musicians like Samuel Blaser, Ingrid Laubrock, Kris Davis, Tom Arthurs, Zach Brock, Christian Lillinger, Gebhard Ullman, Olaf Rupp and Max Richter besides many others. As a bandleader he recorded and produced the CD “Oscar & Emma” with his band ODD SHOT. He is a featured artist of the German Jazzthing/Next Generation-series with the Lorenz
    Hargassner Quartet and was the Berlin-Representative of the 1st Bundesjazzwerkstatt in Germany. Current projects of him are Peter Van Huffel’s Gorilla Mask, the Christian Krischkowsky-Quartett, Mac ‘n Bass, Simon Vincent’s Occasional Trio, Rhinow, Call Me Cleo and Rico & the Black Pumas.
    Quotes:
    “(…)terrific bassist Roland Fidezius.”
    Raul Da Gama, 08/2014
    Einer der “besten Musiker der German Hauptstadt.”
    Reinhold Horn, Plärrer, 02/2011
    On “Bite My Blues”…”Roland Fidezius is credited with effects, but that sideline in no way hides the bludgeoning attack to which he subjects his four-string. Sticking to electric on Bite My Blues, Fidezius produces a vehement grumble similar to Lemmy Kilmister’s and Chris Squire’s, without himself wielding their characteristic Rickenbacker. Regardless of make, the bass here sounds pugilistically forthright.” Neil Hobkirk, wallofsound.ca, 2014.

    Agustin Strizzi – Drums
    Is a musician and music instructor from Buenos Aires, Argentina, with a wide range of experience in percussion, composing, and arranging music. His love for music began at an early age when he found an affinity for the drums, his main instrument, and performing at gigs.
    Wanting to pursue his passion further, Agustin followed both traditional and nontraditional means of education by attending several traditional schools such as the ITMC (Contemporary Music Institute) and then traveling internationally to expand his musical horizons. The music led him to the USA, Brazil, Cuba, Uruguay & Poland where he took private lessons with experts and renowned musicians along the way.
    Driven by the power of music, he set out to dissolve his own borders. He´s toured on Rock stages, appeared on TV Shows such as Good Morning Lithuania, and Jazz Festivals. He has also performed at Symphonic Halls, like Gasteig in Munich, and Theaters and in Musicals in both European and American countries, including Romania, Switzerland, Bolivia, Spain and Mexico. Currently residing in Berlin, Germany, Agustin focuses on sharing the gift of music through his teaching activities and his own unique sound. He is also working on the production of his new album while fulfilling the role of a sideman.

    Andy Aquarius & Viktor’s Joy


    Andy Aquarius solo, Viktor’s Joy solo

    Andy Aquarius:
    A rare serenity and an honest statement in the age of cheap thrills, disruption antics, corporate limbo and conspicuous meme energy.
    Andy has honed a sound; with satisfaction and clear intent. It’s Atlantean music, that is to say, it glides, it pulses forward with the
    determination of naval movements, joyfully watching and evading the crushing inevitability of Pop Melody and the Great Flood. Big
    waves, swirling motifs unfold, and the perfect space is left open for the crystalline atmosphere to expand.


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4yLjtmRFsIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYU7v7hhvY0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGnB6RLUepYandyaquarius.com

    Viktor’s Joy:
    Viktor’s Joy is the musical project of Estonian, Berlin based songwriter and composer Kaarel Malken. Through his
    autobiographical lyrics, supported by hypnotic guitar picking and a voice steady and low, Malken describes people,
    neighborhoods, bus journeys – his interior and exterior world. In 2017 he released his first fulminant record ‘I used
    to be clean’. Viktor’s Joy is able to give you the “Leonard Cohen Afterworld” Kurt Cobain longed for in ‘Pennyroyal Tea’.

    Peter Meyer FLOAT

    Peter Meyer: GUITAR —> PROCESSING

    “There is probably no comparable guitarist in Germany who is as versatilely oriented and works as creatively as Peter Meyer,” writes the music magazine Sound and Image. Jazzthetik calls him a “master of sounds”.
    FLOAT is the solo project of the Berlin-based musician. Here he combines his unique guitar voice with self-developed digital instruments, sound processors, samplers and sequencers. All influences from sound art, experimental music, jazz improvisation, avant-garde pop, electronics and new music merge together.
    Peter Meyer gained national and international attention especially with his longtime band “Melt Trio” (together with his brother Bernhard Meyer and Moritz Baumgärtner). Since 2010, his band have been delighting audiences and the trade press with numerous releases and concerts at home and abroad. In 2015 and 2017 he was nominated for the Echo Jazz.

    Matilda Abraham makes ambient, electronic pop music. Her sound combines a long-lasting fascination with songwriting with fluid, effortless vocals, warm synthesizers, and intricate song arrangements. Her very personal aesthetic emphasizes stylistic exploration, vocal beauty and emotional openness.
    After releasing her debut album in 2016, ‘New Balloon’ Matilda was one of 35 artists selected from thousands of applicants world-wide to take part in the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy residence in Montreal, Canada.
