Jan Roder, bass / DE
Olaf Rupp, guitar / DE
Sorry, but we had to modify our program on short term and unexpectedly -
Olaf Rupp had to change his duo partner: due to a traffic accident, Ulrike
Brand now is replaced by the Berlin bassist Jan Roder.
We wish Ulrike a good and fast recovery!
Olaf Rupp and Jan Roder have known each other for a long time. They play in
a duo setting as well as in a trio with Rudi Mahall, called JR3, having just
released a new CD on the New York label Relative-Pitch-Records.
Jan Roder has played with various well-known representatives of progressive
jazz in Germany, such as Alexander von Schlippenbach, Axel Dörner or Ulrich
Guitar player Olaf Rupp explores on his instrument in uncompromising radicallity the field of free improvisation. The extreme virtuosic playing techniques which he has developed by himself are the result of a unique artistic discipline far away from the usual standards and conventions. He is always expanding the sonic range of his instrument evermore. In his subtle, pointillistic soundworld every single note appears as a colour-dot inside of a larger matrix.
We are to experience a technically savvy, focused and playful duo of
acoustic guitar and double bass. Open ears!
