Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra Kosmostage at Radialsystem V Berlin / Friday and Saturday, 06.-07.12.2019
The incomparably magnificent Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra present their third 2 day Kosmostage festival this year at Radialsystem V. Billed as a Festival for Universal Music, the Kosmostage will see a host of excellent special guests including Ensemble Musikfabrik, MInhee Park, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe and Stian Westerhus as well as AMEO playing in the configuration we already know and love.
Since its inception in 2006, Berlin-based Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra has not only redefined the term “large ensemble,” because more importantly, the 18-piece has created a whole new musical language: “Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra dwarfs anything heretofore experienced: Big band brass meets Free Jazz antics, Neue Musik-style compositions meet a unique definition of pop – all thrown into a blender: It’s the kind of sonic cocktail you’ve never tasted before.” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung)
A self-organized, independent group of likeminded individuals, AMEO is unlike any other orchestra: It’s a steadily working ensemble with a steady focus on experimentation. Comprised of 18 young, in-demand musicians hailing from various countries and musical backgrounds, its members have previously worked in constellations that couldn’t be more diverse – including Ensemble Intercontemporain, Tony Allen’s Afrobeat, Jazz-Legend Kenny Wheeler, Camerata Bern, and post-conceptual artist Cory Arcangel. Daniel Glatzel, the orchestra’s leader and saxophonist, has been the main composer over the last decade.
