Artist Biographies:

"Markus Eichenberger (Aarau, 4 August 1957) is a Swiss clarinet player, saxophonist (bass saxophone, alto saxophone, baritone saxophone, tenor saxophone) and composer in improvised music.

Eichenberger initially planned to become a professional photographer. However, he instead took on a career in music. He became a music teacher and obtained a wind music conductor. Since 1982 he teaches saxophone and clarinet lessons. Since 1977 he has been active in improvised music, especially as a saxophonist. He played in all sorts of groups and projects, but in 1982 he also started working as a solo artist. Most of the albums he recorded in the eighties were solo albums. He worked with, among others, the Swiss drummer Jacques Widmer (recordings in 1983), the Mytha Horns, the pianist Fredi Lüscher and drummer Ivano Torre. Around 1995 he was a member of the Double You Sea Fields group, which played with Ikue Mori. In the second half of the nineties he led a project with what you could call an improvisation big band, the 'Domino' project. He gave concerts in all kinds of European countries, also in the Netherlands and Belgium, as well as America. Eichenberger has many different prizes and awards."

"Philip Zoubek (* 1978 in Tulln an der Donau ) is an Austrian pianist of the New Improvisation Music. A striking feature is his highly energetic play, the limits of the pianos, which also include preparation techniques and actions inside the instrument.

Zoubek studied piano at the Conservatory of the City of Vienna from 1996 onwards. He founded the Ubik quartet and took lessons with Uli Scherer before he enrolled at the Musikhochschule Vienna. In 2002 he moved to Cologne, where he studied with Hans Lüdemann, Frank Gratkowski and Marc Ducret. He founded the multimedia project Cauldron, with whom he won the composition competition of the bunker Ulmenwall Bielefeld and the cultural promotion award of the city of Herford; a DVD Q-Spektrum was created in 2003. With the group Snaut with Richard Koch (tp), Eric Schaefer (dr) and Christian Rainer (voice), he toured through Germany and Switzerland and became a prizewinner of the avant-garde competition for Young culture at the Düsseldorfer Altstadtherbst. Since 2004 he belongs to Achim Tang's Trio Torn, which performed successfully in 2011 in a quartet version at the Moers Festival. He was a member of the James Choice Orchestra ( Live at Moers, 2005), Ensemble Creativ, Org, Camera Obscura and the trio Muche / Zoubek / Tang. As a composer Philip Zoubek appeared with his own formation Philz. He also worked with Paul Lytton, Carl Ludwig Hübsch, Ernst Glerum, Herb Robertson, Wilbert de Joode and Christian Thomé.

In 2008 he received the Horst and Gretl Will scholarship for Jazz / Improvised Music of the City of Cologne. Also in 2008 he founded the Trio Z3 with Benjamin Weidekamp and Christian Weber. The formation Z3 was born out of the idea of ​​the music of the Jimmy Giuffre -Trios of the 1960s."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"A concert recorded in Cologne in 2019. Werckmeister is a quartet consisting of Markus Eichenberger (clarinet), Carl Ludwig Hübsch (tuba), Etienne Nillesen (extended snare drum), and Philip Zoubek (synthesizer) working in admirable empathy. Four improvisers from different countries, intent in the generation of a textural togetherness that properly mixes acoustic and electronic components.

Our main interest within the flow of events is represented by the systematic metamorphosis of the timbral mass. The music may transit through dimensions of pitchless reductionism and unforgiving noise. However, an inherent tendency to atmospheric discoloration surprisingly discloses fragments of alien melodies, bizarre call-and-response activities, boiling liquids, airy perturbations, clusters held long enough to become dissonant drones. The instrumental voices can also be followed separately, or in combinations of two and three, yet a genuine moment of improvisational solipsism is nowhere to be found. The loudness is evidently subjected to repeated oscillations, the musicians capable of switching from ppp to fff in a matter of nanoseconds if they so decide.

Aside from a few obnoxious coughs disrupting the atmosphere (as always, invariably occurring during the sections of lowest volume and greatest subtlety), the record welcomes focused listeners to stimulate them several times over. Lots of turbulent activity, awkwardness in sufficient quantity to eschew expectation, appreciable stretches of barely moving tension. The recording is not exactly hi-fi but the sound is never deprived of substance, which is much more important."-Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes
