Time Bends, the debut album of the trio Gebrüder Teichmann and Robyn Schulkowsky has been released in July this year. Everything audible on it was recorded exactly as it is – no overdubs were used during the recording. At KONTRAKLANG, the trio presents one of their intense live sets, where the experience of flow and musical depth becomes immediately audible. The first half of the evening will be performed by Frauke Aulbert, Hamburg’s uncrowned “Queen of Avantgarde”, who will bring a mixed program of her own works and classics from her repertoire.
Robyn Schulkowsky is one of the most renowned representatives of contemporary music. As a percussionist, she has worked with John Cage and Morton Feldman as well as with the most important classical ensembles and figures of avant-garde jazz. The brothers Andi and Hannes Teichmann have their roots in international club culture. This has taught them not only to think in terms of structures and concepts, but also to see the connections between different traditions. Their instrumentation is techno, their method is experimental, their goal is to discover things never heard before. As a trio, the three musicians* first worked together in September 2017. Since then, they have intensified their electroacoustic dialogue, which has unleashed a multitude of impulses. The release Time Bends, which they present at KONTRAKLANG, testifies to this development in an impressive way.
Frauke Aulbert is considered one of the most active and versatile singers in new and contemporary music. The focus of her work is on experimental vocal techniques that go far beyond traditional possibilities and cross musical and vocal boundaries. The basis for this is her extraordinary ambitus and the high flexibility of her voice as well as her long intensive involvement with traditional and experimental vocal techniques such as multiphonics, overtone and undertone singing, gugak, dhrupda or beatboxing.
