the WISSELTANGCAMATTA

Sonntag 17. Februar 2019 - 18:30

Georg Wissel – präpariertes Altsaxophon, Klarinette
Achim Tang – Bass
Simon Camatta – Schlagzeug, Percussion


– on the edge of free Improvised music, soundscapes and free Jazz –

Seit 2013 haben the WISSELTANGCAMATTA zahlreiche Club- und Festivalkonzerte gespielt.

Nach wie vor arbeitet das Trio regelmäßig zusammen, um ihre Musik weiter zu verfeinern und fortzuentwickeln. Dabei haben die drei Musiker mittlerweile ein traumwandlerisches Verständnis ihres Zusammenspiels erreicht. Wechsel von Dynamik, Dichte, Tempi, melodischen Phrasen, Geräusch oder Schichtungen überraschen mit natürlicher Leichtigkeit.

Presse:

„Bemerkenswert mit welcher Überlegtheit die drei Klangstöberer die Möglichkeit ihrer Instrumente ins Unorthodoxe ausweiten und in eine substanzielle Abstraktheit münden lassen, in der eine unmittelbare, konkrete Poesie mitschwingt. Zudem durchsetzt von spielerischer Akribie, die dem plastisch differenzierten Klangfluss noch eine weitere kaleidoskopische Nuance verleiht. Die hier mit viel Bedacht ausgespielten Idiome freier Improvisation erklingen im Getöse der Unverbrauchtheit. Bewegend.“
