Week of Surprise: Peter Evans & Elias Stemeseder // Lolina // Kemal Dinç & Yadigar Koçer
A Week of Surprise full of musical surprises, diversions, oases and discoveries. Due to the current Corona situation, the Cologne festival "Night of Surprise", will take place as a six-day festival, including not only the Stadtgarten but also other concert venues such as the Christuskirche and the Galerie Martina Kaiser. The program of this interim format focuses on niches of the European musical landscape and projects of some darlings of the last festival editions, local projects and new collaborations in more concert-like formats.
Peter Evans & Elias Stemeseder
Peter Evans - trumpet
Elias Stemeseder - piano
Peter Evans (trumpet) and Elias Stemseder (piano/synthesizer) have overlapping musical careers that go back a decade. In duo performances as well as in larger ensembles, they share not only their skills, which include both intricate jazz with notes and free improvisation, but above all their shared values, which emphasize openness and curiosity over "execution." Their performance at the South Tyrol Jazz Festival was described in Jazzwise Magazine as "a master class in the art of sustained improvisation." They either played in tandem or branched out in a fusillade of notes and chords. These two were electrifying." (Jazzwise)
Unconventional vocals, lofi attitude, dissonant foggy atmospheres between dub. Ambient and experiment - the traces of LOLINA's sound lead back to her project Hype Williams with Dean Blunt and her singles under the name INGA COPELAND. Most recently, Lolina released the album "Live in Geneva" (2019, self-released) - the fog has lifted a bit: Reduced song compositions, the sound more direct and concrete, the emotions still opaque, narration between condensation and dissolution. Sucking and bulky.
