an international three set evening of improvised music on Tuesday 26th of April

 Matthias Müller on trombone and Christian Marien on drums sound like what they are: a working band. They met in 2003 in Berlin, Germany’s capital of improvised music, and their collaboration resulted in the foundation of the duo „Superimpose“ in 2006. Since then they very consciously developing their music, using and at the same time questioning the full range of musical parameters such as dynamics, density, rhythm, sound, form and tonality. They take paths you can only discover after playing together for a long time with high intensity. The outcome is a raw music, at the same time brutal and peaceful, ugly and nice.

One major goal of their work as a duo is meeting and exchanging with other artists. Among others they collaborated with drummer Michael Zerang, trombonist Johannes Bauer, saxophonists Tobias Delius, Matthias Schubert, Frank Gratkowski and Jack Wright, guitarist Olaf Rupp, bassists Wilbert de Joode, Christian Weber and Clayton Thomas (with whom they have the trio “The Astronomical Unit”).

In 2007 they released their debut-CD “Superimpose” on the Portuguese label “Creative Sources”. In 2009 they released their second CD “Talk Talk” on the English label “Leo Records”.

The second set of the evening will be the 1st appearance as a trio of London-based improvisers Grundik  Kazyansky, Seymour Wright & Guillaume Viltard (electronics,  sax & double-bass).

The last and quite unusal duet  - violin & drums – is coming from Israel and feature Ilan Volkov & Ram Gabay.
