It’s not jazz, or funk, nor techno, new music or pop – Kapital Band I simply can’t be categorised. Berlin cellist and electronic technician Nicholas Bussmann and Austrian percussionist Martin Brandlmayr extract musical forms and place them in a completely new context. After the success of their debut album 2CD (2004), the duo has now started on a new project: Playing by Numbers. At the interface of instrumental performance and electronics they develop a three-part “suite” of “audio scores” that are generated in different ways and in which also coincidental components, elements of de- and reconstruction, synthesizing, colouring and shifting can become the structural basis of systematic play. Realised together with major guest artists from the improvisational scene − Clare Cooper (harp), Werner Dafeldecker (double bass), Andrea Neumann (inside piano) und Tony Buck (drums) – the concept holds the promise of a highly exciting and colourful session.
