Sebastian Gramss' States of Play

The international tentet, with guests from Australia, Japan, New Zealand and Argentina, as well as the current WDR Jazz Prize winners 2020, was celebrated as newcomer of the year at the Moers Festival - that's how "Musik 2020" sounds: Melodic - avant-garde - ultramodern... and yet accessible - an aesthetic delight.

Starting from very familiar sounds, the essential anatomy of music is carefully dissected and reassembled again and again in an exploding orchestral diversity in unheard-of constellations. The ten musicians around mastermind Sebastian Gramss create an unexpectedly new style, for which a name has yet to be found ...

Here the crème de la crème of jazz is united to form a unique ensemble:
The well-rehearsed rhythm section -sounding extended by a Japanese Koto,
2 analog synthesizers, foley sounds, FX sound design and prepared snare, piano and guitar - together with the three phenomenal wind instruments create a powerful synthesis.

States Of Play' creates an incredibly complex and iridescent music, which is constantly evolving in an organic flow and constantly reinventing itself in real time. The sound of a well-balanced emotional and intellectual balance - carried by an extraordinary team play.
