Peter Bolte

Peter Bolte alto sax, flutes
Jim Campbell electronics

Peter Bolte is considered an outstanding soloist on the alto sax. Less well-known are his electronica-projects that aspire to reconcile the norms of acoustical and electronic sound production in the sense of a organic musical language. After all, the issue is to bring the programmed calculability of electronics into a context with the spontaneous impulse and the physical expansion of the sound generated in real-time in a way that evokes sensory reactions in the listener.

In his duo with Jim Campbell, Bolte succeeds in fusing these two ways of thinking and working. Bolte, who is active in the NDR Big Band, indulges in the vastness and intimacy of the duo-context. Barren, plane soundscapes with flute and saxophone raising above like birdcalls leave space for individual associations.
