About the Event

"Das improvisierende Duo Kothe/Schneider besteht aus der Sängerin Marietheres Schneider und dem Schlagzeuger Felix Kothe. Auch ohne Harmonieinstrument schaffen sie es, im Dialog zwischen Schlagzeug und Gesang, auf verschiedene Arten Emotionen zu übertragen, Geschichten zu erzählen und Bilder in den Köpfen der Zuhörenden zu kreieren. Ihr musikalisches Ausleben verbindet Improvisation mit Poesie und ab und an elektronischen Effekten." 

Meier-Hanes-Amberg

Swiss musicians Elio Amberg(EA quartet, Schööf, iety) and David Meier (Schnellertollermeier, Zimmerlin-Stoffner-Meier, LEON) formed their collective trio with California via Brooklyn electric bassist Simon Hanes (Tredici Bacci, Trigger, John Zorn’s bagatelles project) in fall 2018 while on a residency in New York.

They draw on influences as diverse as contemporary classical music, free jazz, punk and rock. The resulting music is improvised, non-idiomatic and combines wild energy with a sharp compositional awareness and subtle use of sound.

The trio will be touring Switzerland and Europe in February 2020 to present their first release.

David Meier: drums

Simon Hanes: electric bass

Elio Amberg: tenor saxophone
