In the Woods

This is a recovery track for Fatima. (If it is too exciting for you: listen to it later.)
(Sometimes things have to be in disorder to find into a new order. Provisorisch. Smartass.)
If you listen to the track on the computer speakers you probably will not hear the beat.
Full Blast (Brötzmann/Wertmüller/Pliakas) invite me to an evening session after their workshop on improvised music at AdK. I play a short solo after Olaf Rupp in the first set, in the secound set I play with Peter Brötzmann and Conny Bauer. The latter I didn’t know (or only from his duo with Peter in the first set of this very session) – what a splendid musician. The session shows that there are elder musicians who sound young and younger musicians who sound old.
This is one of the first takes of a series of outdoor recordings. Camera: Ma Raab. Saxophone: me. I can imagine loads of times and places and collaborations for a continuation of this series.
As I want to turn Lump200 live from a laptop act to a band I play some half playback shows. I sing and I talk and my laptop runs my beats. I play in the Panoramabar at Berhain, Berlin, at Dachkantine, Zürich and a living room show at Musikfestwochen Bern. The tiny gig works best.
