"Der Saal der verlorenen Schritte" - Trio für zeitgenössischen Jazz

Henry Mex (Kontrabass, E-Bass, Electronics)
Philipp Danzeisen (Drums)
Jan Gerdes (Klavier, Synthesizer)

Der Pianist Jan Gerdes, renommierter Interpret klassischer, zeitgenössischer Klaviermusik und Electronica, und Henry Mex, Bassist, Komponist und Theatermusiker, gründeten 2017 ein Trio in klassischer Jazzbesetzung mit Schlagzeug. Impulsgebend war die Vision der Verbindung ihrer Erfahrungen der komplexen Klangvorstellungen und Denkweisen der Neuen Musik mit den Rhythmen, der Harmonik und dem faszinierenden Phänomen der Improvisation des zeitgenössischen Jazz. Es entsteht eine pulsierende, ausdifferenzierte und sinnliche Musik an der Schnittstelle akustischer und elektronischer Klänge im Spannungsfeld zwischen Komposition und Improvisation.

Der "Saal der verlorenen Schritte" ist die Beschreibung einer Bahnhofsschalterhalle im Roman “Aus tiefsten Vergessen” des französischen Schriftstellers Patrick Modiano. Dieses Leitmotiv wählte sich das Trio als Inspiration. Ein Bild für das Warten auf Züge, die aus verschiedenen Richtungen kommen und in verschiedene Richtungen gehen. Vielleicht sind die “verlorenen Schritte” auch die in der Musikgeschichte offen gebliebenen Verbindungen zwischen Jazz, Klassik, Neuer Musik und Electronica.

Exhibition - TER HELL

Ter Hell exhibition music school Ohrpheo September 2017

Exhibition opening | Friday | 01.09.2017 | 7pm
The artist will be present.

von Peter Friese, Weserburg – Museum für moderne Kunst, Bremen
siehe www.weserburg.de/index.php?id=878&0=<

The paintings by ter Hell (*1954) unites elements of the German informel with those of the abstract expressionism of the New York school and combines it with the sign language of graffiti art. Non-representational forms of color, which arise in the direct gesture, connect ter Hell with rich subculture. In a provocative manner, he also integrates sentence fragments and speech signs with his aerosol can into his abstract image world. Unlike the "young savages," who drew attention to themselves after 1980 with figurative and partly bright neo-expressive images, ter Hell maintained a non-figurative, but also violent, gestural painting.
