Artist Biographies:

"Mascha Corman studied jazz at the College of Music and Dance in Cologne, as well as Deaf Pedagogy at the University of Cologne. At the university, she received lessons from Prof. Anette von Eichel and Frank Gratkowski. In 2016 she was part of private studies in New York and studied the improvisational concepts of Theo Bleckmann and Fay Victor. Mascha Corman deals with the combination of word, sound and sound, and his possibilities in composition and improvisation. Corman was a scholarship holder of the "EMAS" (European Music Author's Grant of the GEMA) in the area of ​​new music on the subject of "composition with voice and language".

Her compositions for the quartet, founded in 2012, are characterized by the combination of jazz, free improvisation and lyricism. The debut album "Schwanenkampf" by their band emco appeared in the label Ajazz in 2016. In addition to her quartet, she composed for piano - vocal duo and sketched imrovisational concepts for vocal-vocal duo. As a member of the composer's collective Sung Sound , Mascha Corman worked in November 2016 with the Subway Jazz Orchestra Cologne.

Since 2015, Mascha Corman, together with Thea Soti, has been curating the experimental concert series HIMS , which she initiated, which explicitly deals with voice in improvisation and composition. Guests in 2015 and 2016 included Lauren Newton (CH / GER), Jen Shyu (Taiwan, USA), Theo Bleckmann (USA / GER), Sofia Jernberg (NOR), Andreas Schaerer (CH) and Sidsel Endresen (NOR). In 2016 the residence project "Zeitinsel - Residency" came to a joint project with trombonist Janning Trumann. The New York trumpeter Peter Evans was featured in 2016."

"Saxophonist Salim Javaid was born in 1991 to a half Czech half Pakistani family in Sokolov (CZ). While in elementary school, he started to play the recorder for a couple of years before switching to the alto saxophone, and sticking to it ever since.

He worked in large ensembles and big bands as well as in small combos and as a solo artist. His award winning trio "Malstrom" (winner of the 7th European Burghausen Jazz Contest 2015) combines the density and energy of nu metal, rock and metal with the improvisational concepts and aesthetics of jazz and free improvisation. His playing is defined by microtonal concepts, extended technique and saxophone preparations.

Salim Javaid has worked with German jazz stars such as composer and saxophonist Niels Klein, Hayden Chisholm, Frank Gratkowski or world class pianist Florian Weber."
