A little tired of the bodiless conception of the classical new music, I began to ask myself the reasons

for its rejection towards pulses and cycles ('loops'?), against 'groove' (Minimalism being a nice but

paralyzed try). Due to the fact that Webern or Adorno did not offer me a valid explanation, I began

to play and jam with fellow musicians (see Frissons), trying to find out a solution for the problem,

if there was any. After experimenting with free improvisation, I realized that it could also be very limiting,

so I decided to listen a little more Kate Bush and David Bowie. The trip I made to Japan in 2003 opened my

ears to the young laptop scene (not only limited to Japan) and I began to build up my own electronic studio.

 

'MORO' is the result of very hard work, trying to make a 'groovy' music that could profit from

both the experience and knowledge I attained as a 'classical' composer. What does it sound like?

Think of a David Bowie group meeting Hermeto Pascoal, Robert Fripp and Fred Frith!

 

Playing by my side are Sascha Armbruster (alto saxophone),

Dave Bennett (electric guitar and devices) and Karoline Göhler (vocals)
