Yordan Kostov

 

The Macedonian accordion player and composer Yordan Kostov is coming to Germany in May. He's performing concerts and artistic projects around Europe, Asia and South- America.

His contemporary compositional work often includes special instruments, open improvisations, electronic noise and as well the typical balkan flavour of his origin Macedonia.

His musical conceptions go from small accordion jazz groups

to large ensembles and compositions for choir and orchestra,

sometimes also with a DJ being part of the show.

His highly intense music leads to unidentified places of surreality, transforming sweet melodies into complex polytonal sounds.

- CHEKOV - chillin' jazz from outa space

 

This band combines electronic music with jazz improvisation.

Spheric sound collages of samples, loops and beats form

the basis for the improvisation of the live band.



TDS - live electronic trio 

 

Transdimensional Space (TDS) is an experimental electronic fusion band. The trio's sound is characterized by wide use of electronic sounds and effects, funk-inflected breakbeats, experimentel textures and improvisation. TDS blends jazz, funk,

drum'n'bass, electroacoustic and moon music into a unique, trippy experience.



Meirano/Günther - Free improvisations

 

The music played by piano player Gabriele Meirano and Andreas on saxophone and flute is shifting between contemporary classical music and direct, unleashed free jazz. 

Together they played at 577 Forward Festival in New York in 2016. They recently did a new recording which will be released soon.
