Article in the online magazine Resonate magazine about Land’s Air tour and experience at Paretzer Field Music: Land’s Air: Reflections from a European Tour

Diary entry: Reflections on camping outside Sabine Vogel’s bauwagen, and our performance at the concert series “Field Music Paretzer”

JM: I think every tour should have a camping trip – and more concerts need to happen outdoors! Playing outside in this special location near Ketzin has been a real highlight of the tour for me. It’s so interesting to explore how the music might belong: there’s a thrilling tension in how our thinking meets and mingles with the thinking(s) of the place, its human and non-human patterns and cultures.

The company of dear friends – two of my closest pals Emilio Gordoa and Lena Czerniawska and their son Federico, new friend Alex Nowitz, and Sabine Vogel who I expect I will be working with for a long time coming – was so nourishing. We ate radishes, rhubarb compote and stinging nettles from the soil we played on and breathed in the smells of spring flowers on the wind. After four very rockstar travel days where we only set foot on a handful of streets of Munich, Köln and Dusseldorf each before jetting off, this new pace was needed (though I must give a shoutout to hosts Uwe, Lu, Hannes and Georg, and the superfans of Düsseldorf who all wanted autographed CDs, for keeping spirits up!).

EC: Sabine’s playing on ceramic flutes (Tlapitzalli) from Oaxaca impressed me greatly. The flutes have two or three chambers tuned microtonally to each other. In a trio performance with Emilio Gordoa on snare drum and Josten Myburgh on alto saxophone, they created a spectral wash of sounds. Emilio elicited rich overtones scraping a cymbal on the snare, while Josten and Sabine tuned in and out of beating patterns. At some point during the performance Sabine switched to the Tlapitzalli. I was overcome by its sound. I stood up and got closer to the musicians as I felt like I was playing that music myself. I was immersed in the breathing-like cycles of the playing.” (18.05.2023 Resonate Magazine)

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.

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.

Land’s Air:
Josten Myburgh: Saxophone
Eduardo Cossio: Zither

Eduardo Cossio & Josten Myburgh are a duo of improvisers based in Boorloo (Perth, Western Australia). Having played together in various formations over many years, they began refining a duo language in 2021 towards this unexpectedly melodic release. 

Working with found microtonality in detuned zithers and alto saxophone multiphonics, the duo spin melodies and harmonies around each other, slowly unfolding, making sense of the tonality in real time. The harmonic sense is emergent from the interaction between instruments, players, space and place, rather than forethought by any system. 

Eduardo Cossio & Josten Myburgh’s visit is supported by the Western Australian government through the Department of Local Government, Sports and Cultural Industries.

Emilio Gordoa: Percussion
Josten Myburgh: Saxophone
Sabine Vogel: Flutes

This trio performed first time together in January 2023 in the mountains of Tepotzlán in Mexico. And they are very excites to play now on the fields of Paretz and tune into this very different sound and landscape!
