The four musicians Oğuz Büyükberber, Yorgos Dimitriadis, Meinrad Kneer and Marc Sinan explore the unpredictable combinations of their personal (musical) influences. Jazz meets Turkish tradition, classic meets contemporary, Xenakis meets Buddy de Franco, Ali Akbar Khan meets Monk,… In solo, duo and trio they play with the tension that arises when you tackle and create with and against the common vocabulary developing, contrasting soundscapes.
For this new duo, Sinan wrote some nocturnes in the summer of 21, which the two musicians recorded for SWR.
The pieces are based on video scores that give the two musicians a mysterious hold to their free playing style.
From the experience of the notated pieces, further miniatures of free improvisation emerge, all of which have one thing in common: they are radiantly dark night pieces.
Marc Sinan’s third ECM release is an atmospheric duo album with Oğuz Büyükberber that subtly covers many areas.
The guitarist and clarinetist have collaborated in many contexts since they met in Istanbul a decade ago.
The two musicians’ individual musical directions have converged from opposite poles: Marc was trained as a classical guitarist in the Western European tradition but felt increasingly drawn to improvisation and Turkish material, while Oguz first started out in Turkish music and jazz before moving to explored free improvisation and contemporary composition.
Oguz Buyukberber Trio
The trio Meinrad Kneer, Oğuz Büyükberber and Yorgos Dimitriadis met for the first time at the Berlin “Soundance Festival” in 2018 and then very quickly established themselves as an independent group.
Three outstanding musicians explore the unpredictable combinations of their personal (musical) influences and the unspoken agreements that emerge when these references intersect.
Xenakis, Buddy de Franco, Ali Akbar Khan, Monk, Morton Subotnick… They play with the tension that arises when dealing with and against this common vocabulary and create evolving contrasting soundscapes.
