EMBER - AURONA ARONA (CD)


"After the debut "Oullh d'baham" on Euphorium in 2006 this album features even more energetic and precise pieces ranging from free jazz, contemporary classic to noisy electro-acoustic collages. The pieces were recorded in a three-hour session before a concert during the Ahornfelder Festival in Leipzig in 2008, five of the pieces ended up on the CD. The members of Ember all live in different cities and come together a few times a year for concerts and recordings. The ability to combine minimal contemporary sound collages with outbursts of free jazz and electro-acoustic sound sculptures can be seen as the key feature for a diverse and complex approach to improvised music. Swiss saxophone player Urs Leimgruber is a well-established figure in improvised music known for his skilled extended playing techniques. The young drummer Christian Lillinger from Berlin who also plays in the band Hyperactive Kid is outstanding because of his energetic and breathtakingly fast playing. Leipzig based Oliver Schwerdt contributes a wide variety of free jazz and prepared piano sounds to the project benefitting from his experience as a organizer of many improvised ensemble projects. The composer and improvisator Alexander Schubert from Hamburg uses instrumental based acoustic and digital material to create the electronic elements of the quartet." (label info)
