Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Influences of jazz, non-European music, cross-genre as well as sound research and other suggestions of new music become in the concert an open journey into new instrument sound worlds.

Two international air-sound adventurers of the highest class and protagonists of the new and improvised music explore the options of the sound producers, expanding the conventional framework of the sound ideas. The formation of ephemeral, extreme, genre-distant and cliché-free sound adventures can be experienced live - a summit of improvised music. A duo of equal voices, which - in condensing, superimposing or unbundling - become an unmistakable collective sound. The improvised chamber music of the musicians is characterized, among other things, by the synthesis of the different musical origins and the 'socialization' of the players, as well as the juxtaposition of the fixed sounds of the piano with the advanced playing techniques (multiphonics, microtonality, preparations, non-identifiability of the sound producers). The improvisation approach ranges from barely perceptible, subtle to highly energetic sound events, integrating derivatives of classical, jazz, new and non-European music."-Masako Ohta website, translated by Google

Artist Biographies

"Udo Schindler is a German improvisation musicians (bass clarinet, contrabass clarinet, saxophone, flute, cornet, also accordion, guitar, percussion, analog synthesizer) and architect. Schindler was active in the 1970s in Franconia first as rock and rock jazz musician before he had flute lessons at the conservatory Nuremberg. Subsequently, he studied architecture at the Technical University of Munich and worked as an architect. In the 1990s he turned to contemporary music (Arch.Ensemble) and improvised music (Schindler.Interferenz.3). In addition to the single tube instruments (saxophones and clarinets), he studied the cornet. In addition to his sound research, he also worked as a director, performer, musician and composer for various theater productions. In the following years he performed with solo and duo projects at new music festivals (Musica Viva, Klangaktionen, etc ...), jazz, experimental music, among others. This led to collaborations with musicians like Hubert Bergmann, Gerry Hemingway, Eddie Prevost, Sebi Tramontana, Georg Wissel, John Russell, Blaise Siwula, Frank Gratkowski, Hans Koch, Urs Leimgruber, Elisabeth Harnik, Katharina Weber and Frank Paul Schubert. In addition to his activities in solid cast he initiated in Munich a series of concerts to free improvisation in ad hoc to test instrumentation."
