Stream: Winterjazz in Space
Neue Webisoden Serie vom 7. – 12. Januar 2022
The 11th edition of the "Winterjazz Köln" festival, which was to take place from January 7 to 8, 2022 in cooperation with the artist development program NICA artist development in the Stadtgarten Cologne, unfortunately had to be canceled due to the current Corona situation. Since then, work has been going full steam ahead to make the music of the program audible to the public in its freshness and spirit of exploration despite the circumstances. This resulted in the new webisode series "Winterjazz in Space", which will feature a total of 6 broadcasts of 3 bands each from January 7 to 12, 2022 on www.stadtgarten.de and the Facebook channels of Stadtgarten.
All details are subject to change. Short-term program changes are possible.
The quintet TAU5 provides the soundtrack for the parforce ride between the extremes. It is a rapid interplay and a constant morphing process between the components of analog instruments and digital editing suite, when Ludwig Wandinger, as a free improvising DJ, digitally edits the parts and phrases of his fellow musicians, only to present them to them again afterwards for reworking. The result is music that is truly "without boundaries", in which the interfaces between jazz, improvisation, hip-hop, techno or broken beats nonchalantly blur.
Philipp Gropper (sax), Philip Zoubek (synth), Moritz Baumgärtner (dr), Ludwig Wandinger (electr), Felix Henkelhausen (b)
In 2020 Heidi Bayer found for her new band the Norwegian accordionist Kalle Moberg, a musician who is able to play his accordion in such a way that in places you don't recognize it as such anymore, but instead suspect electronic arrangements, flutes, clarinets and at least one organ in need of repair. Besides strong and catchy melodies and sophisticated richness of detail, Bayer's music also leaves room for free islands that make their way between and within the compositions. Elements from film and video game music, contemporary jazz, hip-hop, punk rock and improvised music merge in Bayer's compositions to create an exciting overall sound.
Heidi Bayer (trpt), Sven Decker (ts), Kalle Moberg (akk), Phil Donkin (b), Oli Steidle (dr)
Tamara Lukasheva has toured internationally as a singer and composer, winning numerous prestigious awards. She goes through the world full of curiosity and with alert senses. Music is her mother tongue - and her means of processing impressions, encounters and everyday life. And to create something new, which in turn touches other people; across borders and musical categories. Her electro band Lukoshko deals with the theme ''cosmos'' in its own way and undertakes in-terstellar excursions to cosmic sound shores, and in the weightlessness of space new and old worlds are discovered.
Tamara Lukasheva (voc, comp, keys), Johannes Weber (guit), Malte Viebahn (b), Jan Helten (dr)
