"Schubert and Oberg play together since 2009, mostly as a duo, but also with drummers like Günter Baby Sommer, Christian Lillinger, Jörg Fischer .
Berlin based soprano saxophonist Frank Paul Schubert works regularly with Willi Kellers, Andreas Willers, Johannes Bauer, Matthias Müller, John Edwards, Mark Sanders, Paul Dunmall, Alexander von Schlippenbach and many more. Besides ROPE, he is member of the bands GRID MESH, FOILS and the FABRIC TRIO.
Otmar Klammer (ORF/Austria) writes about Uwe Oberg: "Oberg is one of the few, that really join american with european improvised music;(...) one of the most intriguing pianists at the fascinating intersection of New Music and Free Jazz, who impresses mainly with an economic style". 2007 he received the Jazzprize of the state of Hessen and plays with LACY POOL, Silke Eberhard, Eric Plandé Trio and as a soloist.
For the quartet ROPE Oberg and Schubert join the British drummer Mark Sanders and Amsterdam bass-player Wilbert de Joode, two of European improvisers most in demand - promising an startling and exciting coup.
ROPE'S music is characterized from the sleepwalker-like interplay, also from the constructive playing with texture. Despite the spontaneity and love for details the four always keep the dynamic course in mind - instant composing literally. They mix their diverse musical experiences into a unique music, where unspoiled, meditative, abstract and jazzy elements form a new unit - beyond categories."-Uwe Oberg website
