Alot of good stuff as ever at Spektrum this week with Axel Dörner and Flamingo kicking things off on Monday.
Axel Dörner has for the past 20 years developed a large vocabulary of techniques and sounds, combined into a highly personal language. Born in Cologne,1964. Studied piano and trumpet (with Malte Burba) at the Musikhochschule, Cologne. Moved to Berlin in 1994. He has worked together with numerous internationally respected figures in the fields of “Improvised Music”, “Composed Contemporary Music”, “Jazz” and “Electronic Music”. He has developed a unique style of trumpet playing based in part on unusual, often self-invented techniques. He has toured in Europe, North and South America, Australia, Japan and Asia (Hongkong) and appeared on numerous CD and record releases.
Flamingo are Chris Heenan, Adam Pultz Melbye & Christian Windfeld. Flamingo explores sound, texture and dynamics. Sometimes verging on the threshold of hearing and at other times engaging in dense layers and waves of sound, Flamingo creates a poetic space in which pure sound phenomena step forth on the eternal backdrop of silence. Flamingo has performed at festivals and venues throughout Denmark and Germany and will release its debut vinyl on Barefoot Records in early 2016, followed by tours in Europe and the US.
