In 2019 he was awarded the Van Lier Fellowship by Roulette Intermedium, which supported the world premieres of The Floor is Lava! (upright bass quintet), and La Operación (double saxophone trio with soprano voice). Also in 2019 he released his debut album Atlantic Extraction for double bass, drums, electric guitar, flute, and violin. From 2016-2019, he was a monthly contributor to Hot House Jazz Magazine. (
LAURA SCHULER explores the violin’s diverse sound capacities while simultaneously weaving in her voice. She takes inspiration from nature, the I-Ching, and her wide musical background. What emerges are sounds and songs reverberating around a complex tension that defy any simple categorization. Laura works currently on her solo project under the name «Kate Birch», leads her quartet and is part of the trio Esche. (
ELIAS STEMESEDER performs on the acoustic piano and synthesizers in a variety of musical idioms ranging from the song-oriented music of Jim Black’s trio to contemporary classical pieces by John Zorn to the electric music of Eyebone. Current projects include collaborations with John Zorn (John Zorn’s Bagatelles), Greg Cohen Quintet, Philipp Gropper’s PHILM, Jim Black’s Malamute, Anna Webber’s Percussive Mechanics, Robert Landfermann Quintet, and OTIS+WEDDING.
