Cathedral: Abschluss einer Trilogie von Christian Kobi

Der Schweizer Saxophonist, Improvisationslehrer und Soundkünstler Christian Kobi hat mit dem One Track-Album Cathedral seine vor zehn Jahren mit “Canto” begonnene und mit “Rawlines” weitergeführte Trilogie zum Abschluss gebracht. Das auf Solo-Saxophon und Feedback basierende Werk wurde im ehemaligen Gebäude des Swisscom-Warenhauses in Bern aufgenommen, das heute eine wichtige Konzert-Location ist, und erscheint Anfang Juni auf Buh Records.

“His work explores the relationship between sound, silence and action in space. He studied music in Basel, Paris and Zuerich, with a concentration in experimental music and improvisation. Kobi performs and creates with various musicians, composers and artists in context of long term partnerships with artists such as Phill Niblock, Jürg Frey, Klaus Lang, Taku Sugimoto and Keith Rowe. [...] When improvising solo all comes out of a person: Every detail of the sound, every turn in the flow, any adjustment in the spatial and temporal context are dominated by the person on stage. Christian Kobi pursues a prolific solo carrier alongside his many activities as a saxophonist in Konus Quartett as well as founder and curator of festivals. Through an intensive exploration of improvised music he developed highly personalized sound language.” (Buh Records)
