Program text

Mats Gustafsson is one of the leading improvisation artists to grace the European improvised music scene over the past 30 years. Gustafsson is now based both in his hometown Umea and also in Nickelsdorf in the Austrian Burgenland – the go-to place for the avant-garde. The culmination of his long-standing collaboration with Viennese Christof Kurzmann is a close and quietly confident programme. The poetic and mildly ironic title of the duo’s forthcoming CD is also fitting for this performance – “Falling And Five Other Failings”.

Kurzmann, an innovative, ardent fan of free chamber music and brilliant master of processing tools and buttons, has a passion for sampling and experiments with the diverse poles of electro-pop, improvisation and new music in general. Gustafsson’s saxophone sounds are destined to feel at home in this sound universe.
