This was a great interview with Anders Radlmaier from Nuremberg Curt magazine about Music and Theatre, Politics, Freedom and Arts. There was a super fun moment during the interview when a bunch of people dressed up for carnival came walking through the place like a polonaise, singing and screaming german carnival songs! Photos are by Cris Civitillo.
We love this place and it is fun to play there every time!
Later I met with Michael Scheiner for a really nice chat about music, he wrote the article about the concert in Regensburg at Leerer Beutel. It was a great evening!
Here’s a new live video for our brand new song “Starlight Nightcrash”:
We are still stoked!!:)
This Interview was taken befor the concert and you can see some impressions of the concert and the concert hall! Thank you Elbphilharmonie Hamburg!
On September 15th there was the world premiere of Woyzeck by director Ulrich Rasche.
I was composing the music for this play, for viola, bassoon, piano, bass, and drums.
Three hours of minimal music and one break. Ulrich Rasche created an impressive stage for the play!
If you want to check it out in live, here are the dates.
„Talking opera“ (der neue Markur)
„A mind blowing disgrace“ (Tageswoche.ch)
We’re back from JazzBaltica Festival, what a weekend!:)
Here are some impressions, e.g. our great trombone section with Nils Landgren;)
Thanks to the wonderful festival team! Here is a press link. Our train journey was very relaxed, as you can see. And last but not least a small celebration pic with Gregor Hübner, the best teacher in writing music, what a wonderful surprise!:) We will now get ready and prepare to play at Elbphilharmonie on August 26th. Good times.
We had a great time playing concerts in Munich, Burghausen and Stuttgart! Once we were said to be a “crankily creative spectacle” (Burghauser Anzeiger) and even a “force of nature” (Stuttgarter Zeitung)!
Now we are looking ahead to our next concerts: Jazzbaltica Festival in the far north. Nils Landgren already welcomed us via Facebook! We will hit the stage on June 25 at 8pm!
