Matthew Halpin’s Earwax Control is a combination of improvised music with projected visuals. It engages audience members fully both visually and sonically. As the audience watches the projected visuals, they can understand the musical choices and reactions of the musicians. The visuals provide a red tape for the audience to guide them through exciting and dynamic free improvisation. Comprised of mostly classic movie footage and classic cartoons, the visuals especially in combination with a free flowing improvised soundtrack are intrinsically humorous, absurd and captivating.

In addition to the live scores visuals, Halpin will also showcase this incredible band with some new original compositions.

Eintrittspreis: 15 €

Der Kölner Hanno Busch ist ein aufregender, inspirierender Gitarrist. Wie kaum ein zweiter in der europäischen Musikszene verbindet er einen ureigenen, wiedererkennbaren Stil und einen einzigartigen, sich stetig weiterentwickelnden Sound mit einer Flexibilität und Neugier, die ihn auch unvereinbar scheinende Punkte auf der musikalischen Landkarte wie selbstverständlich zusammenführen lässt. Er begann seinen Weg mit einem Studium an der Hochschule der Künste in Amsterdam und startete gleich auf mehreren Terrains äußerst erfolgreich durch. So spielte er Tourneen und Studioproduktionen mit etablierten oder heiß gehandelten jungen Jazzern, darunter Peter Weniger, die NDR Big Band feat. Bobby McFerrin, Niels Klein – “Tubes & Wires”, Peter Herbolzheimers “Rhythm Combination & Brass”, [re:jazz] oder Jesse Milliner. Gleichermaßen aber auch mit dem Altrock’n’Roller Peter Kraus, dem Popstar Sasha oder dem intellektuellen Indie-Überflieger Peter Licht. Seit 2007 ist er zudem festes Bandmitglied der “Heavytones”, der Hausband bei “TV Total” mit Stefan Raab.

 

Nicht zuletzt die Begegnung mit Michael Wollny und Tamar Halperin (bei”Wunderkammer”), mit denen er 2010 bei Jazz Baltica spielte, führte Hanno Busch dazu, seine Kreativität verstärkt in eigenen Projekten auszuleben. Neben dem „Hanno Busch Trio“ entstand so die Formation “Sommerplatte”, für die Busch gemeinsam mit dem Keyboarder Tobias Philippen Songs schreibt.
