The fourth and last concert of PARETZER FIELD MUSIC for this season is presenting two duos:  
BAUER&NOWITZ Alex Nowitz (vocals) & Matthias Bauer (double bass, voice) 
Sabine Vogel (flutes, objects) & Ute Wassermann (voice, bird whistles, objects) 

an afternoon with voices, timbres, whistles and birds

The duo focuses on the potential of language, music and sound. In this respect, the double bass player, occasionally, also uses his voice while his co-player constantly changes the role as vocal performance artist going back and forth between the singing and the speaking voice, between extended vocal techniques and whistled sounds. One of the duo’s goals is the interaction between the two performers allowing each sphere, be it text or sound, to sparkle and merge with one another all of which aims to illuminate the beauty of both and, no less importantly, the space in-between. 

(Text by Denise Ripplefinger)

In this duo, the two musicians explore the similarities of their instrumentarium: the flute, arguably the instrument closest to the voice, is played by Sabine Vogel and is often sonically augmented by singing, whispering and various mouth percussion sounds. Ute Wassermann, on the other hand, uses various kinds of whistles, which are probably the simplest and most original form of the flute, to mask and extend her polyphonic singing. The result is a hybrid vocal-flute duo with iridescent, swirling, trilling, shrilling, breathing, singing timbres.

Silke Eberhard (sax) / Uli Gumpert (pn) @ ROSENVILLA
Keine Stücke, fertig, los! Der Klang des Altsaxophons verwebt sich mit dem des Pianos – so gut, dass die Klarinette diesmal im Köfferchen bleibt. Die emotionalen Linien verbinden sich zu einer glücklichen Fügung. Bei aller Dichte des Spiels gibt es ein Höchstmaß an Transparenz. Diese Art des Musizierens erinnert an Lennie Tristano und Lee Konitz, die bereits Ende der vierziger Jahre „frei“ gespielt haben – lange bevor der Begriff „Free Jazz“ in Umlauf kam. Im Unterschied zur kraftstrotzenden Geste in den sechziger Jahren ging es dem Kreis von Tristano um filigrane, spontan kreierte Kammermusik – bezeichnend mit Titeln wie „Intuition“ oder „Subconscious-Lee“. Doch die Jazzgeschichte wiederholt sich nicht. Silke Eberhard und Ulrich Gumpert sind keine Retro-Spieler, beide musizieren aus den Erfahrungen ihrer Biographien heraus.(Aus den Linernotes, CD Peanuts & Vanities, Jazzwerkstatt – von Bert Noglik)

Andrea Parkins (acc, live-electronics) / Sabine Vogel (flutes, objects) play on the grounds next to the Caromatisch gardener. The bird life and especially the bird calls are unique there at this time of year and electronic sounds interweave with the natural soundscape of this place and promise a special listening experience.
