As part of the Lange Nach der Bilder and jazzexcess series Fun In The Church band TAU5 will play a special live concert at Alte Giesserei in Lichtenberg this Friday.
Tau is the 19th letter of the Greek alphabet and the name of the Berlin-based fusion quartet around saxophonist Phillipp Gropper and drummer and percussionist Moritz Baumgärtner. In mathematics, however, Tau also refers to the division ratio in the “golden ratio”. Sometimes also called Phi.
The letter Tau as a name for the international band is therefore exciting and inspiring in many ways. All four members are successful protagonists of the young European jazz scene. Since their foundation, TAU 5 have been constantly developing their sound from the fields of jazz, improv, new music and electronics. Based on new forms of composition and improvisation concepts between jam and (re-)edit, TAU researches the specification of a new, collective sound language.
