"Renowned trumpet player Hans Kennel writes of this new release:

"As a trumpet player with many years of experience I am still interested in the music of younger colleagues. In the summer 2016, by pure coincidence I met and heard Silvan Schmid play and I was both impressed and touched by his very special playing. I was pleased to hear a trumpet player who plays "different". Silvan does not sound "out of a school". In his early years he already has his musical dialect... His beautiful tone, his very sensitive articulation and phrasing are an earcatcher. Brilliant technique, but no "flasher". He integrates, without giving any of his personal assets away, into a given situation. Great fulfillment he obviously finds in an ideal way in his GAMUT projects. A fascinating group of astonishing young musicians that creates an ambient where improvisation and composition mutually dissolve into a resolution."

"Tapiwa Svosve's (born 1995) interests move between improvisation, electroacoustic composition and contemporary music. From 2014 to 2017 he studied at the Zurich University of the Arts. Explorations of abstract sounds, the relations between sound and space and/or time are topics he's always trying to address in his various projects. Furthermore he is also active as an organiser, f.e. the Gamut Kollektiv and the Taktlos Festival."

"Vincent Glanzmann, *1983 Tokyo (Japan), is a Zurich, Switzerland based drummer. As a performer and composer he is involved in a multitude of collaborations with artists from various fields. His playful way of working conceptually makes him an active part of the progressive Swiss improvisation, pop and jazz scene. With his distinctive sound, creative energy and physical playing style, which often includes preparations and alternative techniques, he colours a broad spectrum of contemporary Zurich music.

Working together with other percussionists is one of his special interests. The most prominent example of this is his work with the New York drummer Gerry Hemingway: Composition O. This collaboration directly arose from Glanzmann's solo work, in which he is primarily interested in cultivating a personal and intimate musical language.

Be it in self-initiated projects or in commissioned work, his focus is on the processing of intramusical and extramusical themes through conception, composition and the use of his instrument. Past composition commissions include a concept for a "100-year-old mill, vocals & drums" and a solo composition for the dance piece "Up/Beat", which he performed as a soloist together with the Lucerne Ballet at the Lucerne Theatre. He finished another composition commissioned by the Lucerne Theatre's dance ensemble in 2017 and released his second album under his own name in the beginning of 2018.

He obtained a Master of Arts degree in music (performance jazz) at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts in 2012 and has operated as a freelancer and independent artist in Switzerland and Europe ever since. In December 2016, he was the artist in residence at the jazz club Moods in Zurich and in 2017 the city of Zurich honored him with the cultural award "Werkjahr".

Apart from this he is co-organiser of the Zurich concert series Seismogram and works in a voluntary capacity as a member of the Moods Musicians Council and the Unerhört festival's Advisory Board. In these contexts, he considers it important to support and present the improvising and progressive musicians of Switzerland."

"In 2007 I started studying music at the Music Academy of the City of Basel, Department Jazz. During this time I was able to benefit and learn from musicians such as Adrian Mears, Jorge Rossi, Guillermo Klein, Larry Grenadier, Malcolm Braff, Julio Baretto, Matthieu Michel and many other lecturers at the jazz school. In addition to my skills on the tenor trombone, I also gained experience on the bass trombone, tuba, piano and drums.

In June 2010, I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Music at the Music Academy of the City of Basel, Jazz Department.

For the master's degree course - also in Basel with Adrian Mears - I finally devoted myself completely to the bass trombone and from then on I worked intensively on improvisation techniques for this rather unknown jazz instrument. In August 2012, I successfully completed my Master of Arts in Music.

Today I play in over ten bands (including the Lucerne Jazz Orchestra and the Swiss Army Big Band) and I am still discovering and getting to know new music, new people and new challenges."
