Muted hosted by Tobias Christl 


Muted#3 – Songs about Songs
Hosted by Tobias Christl (voc)
inspired by Wildern and Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Prefab Sprout, The Cure, A-ha, Lana del Rey and many more

Nach zwei sehr schönen ersten Abenden nun der dritte Teil meiner neuen Reihe „Muted“ im Donau 115.
Diesmal erfinden wir leise Songs über laute, neue über alte, sprich, wir spielen sie eigentlich nicht, wir komponieren sie eher klein. Wie ganz kleine Babys. Und dann lassen wir sie wachsen. Ein Baby pro Song. Was wohl aus ihnen wird wenn sie groß sind? Wir wollen nur ihr Bestes!

Diesmal mit
Christoph Bernewitz (guit)
Dan Peter Sundland (b)

Zwitschermaschine


mark weschenfelder – alto, klarinette, komposition //
paul berberich – flöte, alto //
vincent bababoutilabo – flöte, altflöte //
adrian kleinlosen – posaune //
joachim wespel – gitarre //
andris meinig – kontrabass //
florian lauer – schlagzeug

Zwitschermaschine: rarely does a band’s name so accurately construe the sort of music that a group plays. In 1922 German painter Paul Klee conceived the eponymous painting – four birds sit on a wire (or is it a sine-wave branch?) connected to a hand-crank. With drawn necks, wide-open beaks and jagged and rounded objects flowing from their mouths, they peer in different directions. The freedom of song converges with the discipline of mechanics. Known as the “Twittering Machine”, in English, it fits to alto saxophonist Mark Weschenfelder’s play as he conjoins the four wind instruments, which in turn are cranked-up by the rhythm section. The music is as original as the painting. With its beautifully unorthodox style, the band’s sound is defined by two flutes that flicker, glitter, twitter, in front of, beside, or with saxophone, trombone, guitar, bass and drums. Weschenfelder’s compositions offer immense flexibility and range. He doesn’t copy American musical styles, just as he stays away from writing material that might encourage improvisational grandstanding. He loves to keep the music compact, colorful, and dynamic. For Weschenfelder the principle of improvisation is vital, but you’re not going to find him repeating a new musical riff just because it’s convenient.

Even free improvisation has its clichés – something that Weschenfelder steers clear of. With its drive and mysterious aural architecture, his septet music captivates and stays with the listener long after the last note has sounded. Something special propels Weschenfelder’s Zwitschermaschine. Most of this intricate, intuitive music is notated. For it to properly develop, the distinctive sound of this jazz, progressive rock and new music admixture requires immense interpretative accuracy. Yet, despite all the necessary discipline, the pieces maintain their spontaneity and freshness. There is enough surface friction in this music to ensure that it is never sterile.

Yves Dorison,CultureJazz

Created at the of End of 2006 in England, The Fabrice Tarel Trio has created a very personal universe among years.The soundscaps succeed one to another naturally through compositions well balanced between musical writing and improvisation.
A great intensity emanates from this trio. Some piece are punctuated by throbbing ostinatos with an hypnotic atmosphere, whereas others, more quiet, reveal a deep sensitiveness. One’s can observe a strong complicity between the musicians and a generosity which invite us to join this poetic journey!
