Jazz at JAKI: Elke Bartholomäus

Nachholtermin vom 16.12.23 - bereits gekaufte Tickets behalten Ihre Gültigkeit.

Trained in Cologne and New York, vocalist and composer Elke Bartholomäus has long been a constant on the Cologne music scene, working alongside Ralf Werner (DIE KULTURTECHNIKER), among others, and recording for the WDR Studio Akustische Kunst. Her work transcends genre and genre boundaries - always with a focus on exploring the limits and possibilities of the human voice and its role in experimental improvised music and performance. Her relationship to traditional vocal jazz has always been a fractured one and a reason and starting point for her research into restructuring and breaking down the boundaries of traditional song forms.

Open text structures meet composed minimalist approaches and modal elements and are condensed into floating to driving atmospheric fields, which in turn become the starting point for spontaneous reinterpretation with improvisational means. Bartholomäus uses her voice as an instrumental texture and in this way creates multi-faceted, often fragile soundscapes. Her debut album To Speak was released on October 12, 2023 by JazzHaus Musik.
