A small update about some very exciting projects that are happening the next couple of weeks:

January 25th and 26th I´m working with ´Ensemble Modern´ in Frankfurt am Main. The first two rehearsal days for the concerts we are going to do in July 2018… I´m very excited about working with this amazing ensemble! Ensemble Modern

Also, during the next weeks I´m recording with Carl Ludwig Hübsch some new music. Tuba and extended snare drum! Definitely one of my favorite players so that is going to be very nice! Carl Ludwig Hübsch

I´m working on some new material for the extended snare drum. During the next two months I will record my first solo album which will come out the second half of this year. It is going to be presented as a book with artwork by the amazing Eva Jeske, writings about music and the downloadcode for the music. The download will be available in the highest quality, high fidelity sound.

Apart from that I´m playing a concert that I am really looking forward to in Berlin on Febr 17th with Georg Wissel and Dusica Cajlan.  Exploratorium Berlin





‘lingua franca’
tape composition and Improvising ensemble
premiere concert at Kunst-Station Sankt Peter, Cologne on December, 6th 2017
Dušica Cajlan – Wissel, prepared piano
Etienne Nillesen, extended snare drum
Georg Wissel, prepared altosax, composition
video by Basa Vujin – Stein

For about one year Georg recorded tongue-twisters in his home town Cologne and during his tours all over the world.
By layering, filtering particular frequencies and surgical procedures the sounding qualities of those tricky phrases serve as acoustic material for this electro-acoustic tape compostion ‘lingua franca’.
In the premiere concert trio CAJLAN-WISSEL-NILLESEN sublimely nests in the sound scape of ‘lingua franca’.
