Accompanied by Polish pianist and composer Joanna Duda, Mark Weschenfelder's eight-piece ensemble opens the sixth edition of "SESSION WEST". A cooperation with LeipJAZZig e.V.
The band is named after Paul Klee's 1922 painting "The Chirping Machine." It performs Weschenfelder's highly complex compositions and presents a musical style he jokingly calls "Sophisticated Elevator Music." Weschenfelder's sophisticated compositions flirt with noise and chaos and branch out in a smoothly homey and almost quiet manner. "System for Us," the band's debut album is out in 2019 on WhyPlayJazz. "Looping", the second album, is already in the starting blocks and will be released in the late year on the Austrian label Boomslang Records.
After the concert the stage is free: we would like to invite musicians to participate in the session!
Admission free, donations requested
