Olsson / Rubin

Henrik Olsson and Ola Rubin are two well acknowledged Swedish improvisers active on the experimental/improv scene in Europe. Currently with a base in Copenhagen/Malmö where they are involved in several projects that frequently appears on the international scene. In this duo, they both immerse themselves in a hearty improvised musical dialogue that is full of energy and expressivity. They work their way towards the unheard by meticulously exploring mind-boggling sounds, rhythms and abstract sonic shapes, often rapidly shifting between these. Curiosity are at the core of this duos identity and their interplay is reactive and dynamic. They both utilises a way of playing that takes advantage of extended techniques which they both developed on their respective instrument.
Henrik Thor Oscar Olsson is a Swedish guitarist and composer, based in Copenhagen.

He has composed all the music for Penumbra Ensemble’s debut album, which has been very well received among critics and referred to as “a surrealist vision, a deeply personal expression of avant-garde rock, jazz, world music and poetic soundscapes” by All About Jazz. He is a member of the independent label and improvisers’ collective Barefoot Records and of the curators’ team for the concert series Lutter Øre. He is well established on the danish jazz/improvisation scene and has performed with musicians such as Kresten Osgood, Sture Ericson, Peter Friis Nielsen, Lotte Anker, P.O Jorgens, Olie Brice, Max Johnson, Daysuke Takaoka, Takashi Sugawa, Jørgen Teller, among many others.

Michael Fischer & Onno Ennoson

Ein Dialog  zweier Klang Protagonisten, dem Konzept des ‚Probens’ abgeneigt, dreht sich
hier alles um den Moment, den Austausch in Echtzeit.

Michael Fischer arbeitet seit Mitte der neunziger Jahre an der Sprachimmanenz von Klängen, deren skulpturaler und dramatischer Evidenz, in zeitgenössischer improvisierter und experimenteller Musik/Noise/soundscapes am Tenorsaxophon, Violine und conducted instant compositions. Im Jahr 1999 begann Michael Fischer das elektroakustische Phänomen Feedback in sein instrumentales Werk zu integrieren und entwickelte eine einzigartige Technik und ein ausschließlich analoges, nicht effektbasiertes Instrument, das Feedback-Saxophon: Mikro- und Makrobewegungen des Instruments / Körpers, die die Textur in einem Dialog der akustischen Reflexionen des Raumes erzeugen. Weiterentwicklung dieses Instruments am ZKM / Karlsruhe. Er arbeitet mit frühen Schlüsselfiguren und aktuellen zeitgenössischen MusikerInnen in der frei improviserten Musik sowie mit bedeutenden KünstlerInnen der experimentellen Poesie, Konzeptkunst, visuellen Poesie und Tanz/Performance. Tourneen, guest-lectures und Präsentationen in Europa, Kanada, Japan, USA. 2004 lancierte Michael Fischer das VIENNA IMPROVISERS ORCHESTRA, das als erstes österreichisches Improvisationsorchester kontinuierlich mit der Methode des instant composition conducting (Begriff M.F.) arbeitet.
https://m.fischer.wuk.at/feedback_saxophone.htm

Onno Ennoson ist neben seiner visuellen Kunst Produktion, in der Kalligraphen, Typographen und Zeichen, frei von semantischer Bedeutung (‚asemics’) ein wesentliches Arbeitsfeld darstellen, ist Onno Ennoson seit Mitte der 90er Jahre in die experimentell-elektronische Klanglandschaft Wiens involviert. Solo Auftritte und Kollaborationen, FERON mit Dieta Mattersdorfer, ØZØN mit Özgür Sevinç, SPEEDROON NOORDEEPS mit Christoph F.. Seit 2015 ist die eigene Stimme ein zusätzlicher Bestandteil seines Instrumentariums geworden, mit der er als Kontrapunkt zum ‚asemic writing’ die Möglichkeiten von ‚aural asemics’ erforscht. Im Kontext des Duos mit Michael Fischer arbeitet er mittels der Soma Pipe, einem stimmgesteuerten Synthesizer/FX-Gerät, welchem eine futuristische Gestalt-Ähnlichkeit zum Saxophon eigen ist, auch mit Mikrophon und 4-Track Looper.

Cosseron & Mariage / HYMM

Cosseron/Mariage

The Cosseron/Mariage duet visits the in-between, not the sound but its meaning. It is the association and only of these two musicians that will define a sound object, aesthetic, ethic; for here everyone works elsewhere, limiting by their respective sounds an empty environment, free to any interpretation. Their only desire is to create this link which by its mixture, its whirling, will reveal a form which, whatever one says, always presents itself as an end.
Attached exclusively to this attempt, they allow each listener to see better than them even what will come out of it, not with certainty, but on the contrary, with the distance to oneself that imposes itself then.
Guylaine Cosseron and Jean-Sébastien Mariage are key players in the French improvised music scene, as well as European and international music. Together they have traveled the world for fifteen years, presenting their singular vision of improvisation while risking numerous meetings with other international artists. By this they explore not hypothetical differences in cultural identities, but the fertile tension revealed by the gap of civilizations. From this “between” comes a new set, unique to the shared moment, whose vocation is to create a unique listening ground.

Guylaine Cosseron boldly goes where no vocal chord has gone before. Her experimentation puts her voice to the test, exposing her desires, driving her to the limit, exploring the edges. Guylaine’s instrument includes her breath and saliva, her lips, palate, and glottis, her throat, chest and nose. It’s a total singing experience, that sees her reach an incredible variety of tones, exploring an inexhaustable field of possibilities
Jean-Sébastien Mariage : The sound is imposing with biting distortion, piercing attack rifs, and sparkling ruptures; you can almost feel the texture of the music, Here’s the proof that there are still new things to be done with string instruments.

Kilirlumb

Kilirlumb

Kilirlumb ist ein improvisierendes Trio mit Dominik Blum an Analogsynthesizern, Marc Kilchenmann am Kontrafagott und Alex Riva an verschiedenen Blockflöten. Die Blasinstrumente werden teilweise elektronisch modifiziert, insbesondere verzerrt. Das Trio lässt aus den disparaten Quellen eine Klangwelt entstehen, die Hörgewohnheiten durchbricht. In Bewegungen des Abdriftens und der Verflechtung zeichnet sich eine brüchige, raue Einheit ab.
Blum und Riva sind seit 2013 im Duo Irlumb an mehreren Orten in der Schweiz und in Frankreich aufgetreten. Ende 2015 haben sie sich mit dem Fagottisten Marc Kilchenmann zusammengetan, das Klangspektrum und die improvisatorischen Möglichkeiten wurden erweitert. Kilirlumb ist erstmals öffentlich im September 2016 in Marseille aufgetreten. Seit bald vier Jahren probt Kilirlumb regelmässig und hat dabei einen komplexen, ungeschliffenen, sehr charakteristischen Sound entwickelt. 2017 war Kilirlumb ans Festival 10 Jahre Akusmatische Musik eingeladen, und hat bei dieser Gelegenheit über das Wiener Akusmonium gespielt. Im gleichen Jahr ist Kilirlumb an der International Tubax Super Session in München aufgetreten.
Nina Polaschegg beschreibt im Radiosender SWR2 das Trio Kilirlumb folgendermassen: „Eine eher seltene Besetzung, die dennoch hervorragend harmoniert, wenn man diesen Begriff verwenden möchte.“ Und zu einer Liveaufnahme aus der WIM Zürich: „Die Drei setzen Klangwände in den Raum, stehende Sounds in hoher Energie.“

www.dominikblum.ch

Marc Kilchenmann
studierte Fagott (Ingo Becker, Eckart Hübner) und Komposition (Urs Peter Schneider). Zudem belegte er die Studiengänge Elementare Musikpädagogik und Research on the Arts. Ähnlich vielseitig wie seine Studien erweist sich sein heutiges Betätigungsfeld. Im Zeitalter des Spezialistentums hat sich Marc Kilchenmann den Anspruch bewahrt, den Musikerberuf als Generalist ausüben zu wollen.
In den letzten Jahren sind die Tätigkeitsfelder Komposition und Improvisation verstärkt ins Zentrum gerückt. Verbunden wird dies mit intensiven musikwissenschaftlichen Forschungen im Bereich der Neuen Musik. Neben Studien zu Hermann Meier beschäftigte er sich in seiner Master-Thesis mit der formalen Konstituierung des Gesamtwerkes von Jean Barraqué und schreibt zur Zeit an der Graduate School of the Arts and Humanities der Universität Bern eine Doktorarbeit zur ‘Extended Just Intonation’ am Beispiel des US-amerikanischen Komponisten Ben Johnston. Marc Kilchenmann ist Vater von zwei Kindern und lebt in Bern.

Alex Riva
hat eine unverkennbare Spielweise auf verschiedenen Blockflöten (von der Bassblockflöte bis zum Garklein) mit eigenen Techniken entwickelt. Dabei integriert er Zirkuläratmung, Multiphonics, perkussive Elemente und die gleichzeitige Verwendung der Stimme. Wichtige Einflüsse sind die experimentelle Musik, Noise, Free Jazz und Neue Musik. Momentan lebt er in Zürich. Er ist seit einem längeren Aufenthalt in Marseille von 2010 bis 2014 in der internationalen Szene der freien Improvisation aktiv. Schon seit den Nuller-Jahren performt er im Free-Noise-Duo Riva/Müller mit dem Bassisten Lukas Müller in Bars, an alternativen Zentren und anlässlich von politischen Protestaktionen . Das unberechenbaren Trio ZGB mit dem italienischen Saxophonisten Dario Fariello und dem finnischen Gitarristen Mikael Szafirowski hat seit seinem ersten Zusammentreffen 2015 bereits 50 Konzerte gegeben. Von Januar bis März 2019 weilte er für eine vom Popkredit Zürich ermöglichten Residenz am Alice Boner Institut im nordindischen Varanasi. Neben zahlreichen Auftritten in der Schweiz und Frankreich, solo oder mit anderen ImprovisatorInnen, hat Alex Riva an Konzerten und Festivals in Deutschland, Österreich, Italien, Spanien, England, Dänemark, Norwegen, Griechenland und Indien gespielt. Darüber hinaus hat er mit bildenden KünstlerInnen und TänzerInnen und Filmschaffenden zusammengearbeitet.
