FULL BLAST
Peter Broetzmann (Germany, reeds) – the living legend of the European new jazz.
He has exemplified European improvised music for over 40 years and participated in countless international collaborations.
A founder of European Free Jazz movement, his work includes collaborations and recordings with Last Exit (with Bill Laswell, Sonny Sharrock and Ronald Shannon Jackson), Evan Parker, Misha Mengelberg, and Borah Bergman. Recent projects include Die Like a Dog (with William Parker, Hamid Drake and Toshinori Kondo), his homage to Albert Ayler, the Chicago-based Broetzmann Tentet and many more.
His first album Machine Gun released in 1968 still represents the reference for the musicians and critics. Considering his 40-years-career and more than 100 albums, but also many current projects, Broetzmann is still one of the most influential figures of the new music.
Wertmueller and Pliakas worked together on various occasions (touring together in various bands on festivals all over Europe e.g.
SKIF-Festival St.Petersburg/Russia, Kaunas Jazzfestival/Lithuania, RingRing Festival Belgrade/Serbia, Nozart Festival Cologne/Germany, Xperipheria Budapest/Hungary, Long Arms Festival Moscow/Russia, Cross-linX festival Enschede and Utrecht/Netherlands, Festival Victoriaville/Canada, Sound Forest Riga, Clubtransmediale Berlin, Ultraschall Berlin, MaerzMusik Berlin, etc. together with Peter Broetzmann, Caspar Broetzmann, Stephan Wittwer, John Cale, Holger Csukay, Marian Gold, Mouse on Mars, Jaki Liebezeit, KK.Null, Olaf Rupp, IVES #1, and others cooperation with Pliakas’ avant trio STEAMBOAT SWITZERLAND). Both of them toured world wide with their various bands
(MW: William Parker Trio, Alboth!, 16-17, W2 MP: steamboat switzerland, sludge 2000 etc.).

STEAMBOAT SWITZERLAND
The Swiss trio: energetic and innovative border crossers between Hardcore and Avantgarde – breath-taking, radical, exact.
The «Hammond Avantcore Trio» Steamboat Switzerland is a damn wild and absolutely virtuoso band. They tour worlwide and played a wide range of different festivals – from «Donaueschinger Musiktage» and «Moers Festival» to Patti Smith’s «London Meltdown Festival» etc.
The group combines elements from jazz, metal and contemporary scores.
The sounds exchange between «Dark Power Ambient» and «Boulez On The Rocks».

GOCOO
GOCOO are seven female and four male drummers who capture their audience with original grooves woven with Japanese drums, Taikos. On stage the 11 musicians from Tokyo create with almost 40 drums a music-spectacle beyond imagination. Music-wise GOCOO are one of the most sophisticated percussion groups of the present. The cosmic beats and uniquely complex poly-rhythms are of such primal nature that they reflect all known music styles and consequently unite people of all ages, ethnic and social origins and of any taste in music. No matter where GOCOO performs, at major World & Roots, Rock & Pop or alternative Music & Culture festivals, in live clubs, classic theatres and concert halls or at techno events, GOCOO takes all audiences on a mesmerizing trip between trance and ecstasy with their goose-bumps music.
GOCOO define themselves as a « Band » and while usual Taiko ensembles stoically pursue a traditional style, and while others seek new interpretations of traditional Japanese music, GOCOO’s beat exhibits free-spirited Taiko music, rising freely between the East and the West, tradition and pop, rite and party and hence appealing directly to the heart of a broad range of audiences. Although GOCOO’s music is often referred to as crossover or roots music, or even new terms such as
Techno- and Trance-Taiko are created to pay tribute to their unique rhythms, GOCOO successfully overcame any stereotyped concepts not only of Japanese drum music and reached their own, independent cult status.

Thanks for reading.

I look forward to hearing from you asap.

Regards.

Alain
