NILS DUFFHUES
The recording quality is very warm here (perhaps also
due to the fact that this on vinyl, just as purists would love such a
thing) and each of these pieces is a small film by itself. Excellent
record, quite moody and textured, but also with shimmering lights.

URS LEIMBGRUGER + ROGER TURNER
_The Pancake Tour_ finds Swiss saxophonist Urs Leimgruber and British
drummer Roger Turner
together as a twosome (sometimes referred to as The Pancake Duo),
recorded in concert at The Loft in Cologne in October 2011. The
sax-drums duo is a varied and demanding format which exposes each player
to equal scrutiny, allowing no hiding place or time out. Instead, each
member has to be full-on constantly, giving and receiving, and listening
and responding; if either of them is not, it shows. Thankfully,
Leimgruber and Turner are past masters of improvisation and here give an
impressive textbook demonstration of the art of the duo.

ONE MAN NATION

Our evolving notions of sexuality and gender will play into the
deconstruction of music at Jam this Friday.

Tara Transitory, a Singapore-born experimental musician also known as
“One Man Nation,” will import the Translæctica trans*queer party
[8] from Spain to the art bar located off lower Sathon Road.

The artist will perform experimental noise followed by a presentation on
the transgender scene noise in Southeast Asia based on her research. A
DJ set will also be served up by Taami (Miriam de Saxe), Kiiri (Tara
Transitory) and Go Grrrls’ Mae Happyair.

THE PITCH
The Pitch has created a personal musical language and a body of work ranging from quartet music to extended, large scale ensemble pieces involving guest musicians and further conceptual elements.
Improvisation is an important element in their music. it is used as a generative device within specific shapes, structures and ideas for different pieces of music.
Their piece ‘Frozen Orchestra’ focuses on slowly changing textures, pitch-set constellations and the subtle blending of instruments. Previous versions of ‘Frozen Orchestra’ have included Lucio Capece (bass clarinet), Chris Heenan (contrabass clarinet), Biliana Voutchkova (violin), Johnny Chang (viola), Okkyung Lee (cello), Nils Ostendorf (trumpet), Robin Hayward (tuba) and Valerio Tricoli (revox tape delay).
As a Quartet they are currently engaged in what they call ‘Liquid Music’ which focusses on Pattern based structures and more rhythmic interplay in an environment of prescribed pitch combinations and specific kinds of interaction.

LUCIE VITKOVA Lucie Vítková is a composer, performer and improviser
of accordion, harmonica, voice and dance from the Czech Republic. She
graduated in accordion performance at Brno Conservatory in 2010 and
composition at Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno
(CZ)
in 2013. During her Master Degree, she studied at Royal Conservatory in
The Hague (NL) and at California Institute of the Arts in Valencia
(USA). She has studied with Martin Smolka, Jaroslav Šťastný, Martijn
Padding, Gillius van Bergijk and Michael Pisaro. Along with her study of
music she used to teach tap dance at the Faculty of Theatre of JAMU.
She is a member of the Brno Improvising Unit, Ensemble Marijan, Dunami,
Dust in the Groove and Prague Improvisation Orchestra.
