Offene Ohren e.V. presents Improvised Music

Halftime!

Hard to believe: the first half of the season is over and 10 concerts are already history.The great finale was provided on 15 June by Herr Borelgrip and their brilliant performance on bass, alto sax and alto clarinet.

Anyone who wants to read something about our 15-year history can do so in the June edition of Jazz Podium.

We now take a summer break - which means opening our ears at various concerts and festivals: in Ljubliana in Slovenia (JZZ) for example, A L'ARME! in Berlin, or at the incredible 40th anniversary of the Konfrontationen Nickelsdorf (review and preview at Radio Ö1), and later at Météo in Mulhouse. we'll see each other somewhere!

Afterwards - on 6 September, to be precise - we will continue our series of concerts - below you can see who will visit us when. We look forward to welcoming you again.

We wish you a wonderful summer,
and of course
                    Open Ears!

Røysum & Dörner Duo

Duo Dörner & Røysum

Andreas Røysum, clarinet
Axel Dörner, trumpet

As a duo, Dörner and Røysum meet through a mutual understanding of form and technique. Drawing on a broad stylistic range, they manage to create abstract soundscapes of stupendous variety.

Axel Dörner has redefined the sound of the trumpet over the last twenty years using alternative techniques to realize its potential.
He plays classic Cool Jazz with Sven Åke Johannson with the same confidence as he does using an experimental approach such as in Contest of Pleasures with John Butcher and Xavier Charles.

Oslo-based clarinetist Andreas Røysum has worked with everything from pure abstraction to Jazz, Norwegian folk music and Indian classical music. He spent the past years touring with his groups Miman and Målbrott, and also performed with people like Elliott Sharp, Jasper Stadhouders and Rhys Chatham.

A unique merging of free improvisation and chamber jazz, the trio of UK bassist Paul Rogers, German guitarist Olaf Rupp and German soprano saxophonist Frank Paul Schubert use stunning techniques in sensible ways as they present three extended works, energetic yet never frenetic, stretching their concepts in a tight and enthralling dialog of great luster.

Paul Rogers' bowing work, especially in the high register, provides an intense counterpoint to Frank Paul Schubert's playing, ranging from pointillistic to squealing and scattering runs. Olaf Rupp alternates from chordal work to rapid fire clusters that are never overbearing.

The trio are a cauldron of sound that never boils over, constant in spirited playing that meshes so well that it creates a texture you can listen to repeatedly without catching all of the detail.

There are introspective moments and great dynamics, but overall the enthusiasm of their interaction carries the day, making for a profoundly masterful and infectious musical live performance.

The pianist, interpreter and composer Reinhold Friedl is probably associated by most people with the ensemble Zeitkratzer. Visitors to the concerts of Offene Ohren e.V. may remember his duo Tobel with electronic sound artist Franck Vigroux and their performance two years ago at MUG.

Other important musical partners include Keiji Haino, Phill Niblock, Masami Akita (better known as Merzbow), Mario Bertoncini (nuova consonanza), Lou Reed.

The main focus of Reinhold Friedl's work is the inside-piano. He has played any and all compositions using inside-piano techniques and released several articles in this field.

His solo recital will be a combination of his own new improvisational works and a recent recording of a composition by Haubenstock-Ramati.
