...probably just an over-reaction to certain tv casting shows. honest ,open, unscrupulous, completely unpredictable... Groovy beats as the basis for jazzy variations, sometimes with loops and drum

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
k3
anti-cast… probably just an over-reaction to certain TV casting shows
honest, open, down-and-dirty, absolutely unpredictable…
About k3…
Herbert Könighofer (sax, flutes)
Robert Kainar (drums, perc., electronics)
Klaus Kircher (double-bass, e-bass, guit.)
K3 have been referred to as the enfants terribles of the Austrian Jazz scene.
With their fusion of acoustically and electronically generated beats and sounds, the three unconventional artists walk on a tightrope between pop and free jazz.
Their genre-busting style oscillates between dub, trance, noise and drum and base and the three musicians boldly defy conventions and create a space for artistic freedom. In doing so, they play Jazz in its original meaning: crossing borders, pushing boundaries… far out! - keeping aloof from clichés and mainstream, leaving the beaten track of academic, inane high-speed Jazz.
Improvisation, spontaneity and humour are the main ingredients of the soup they cook up during their performances. Music emerges; it happens live - exclusively!
k3 reinvent themselves with every performance. They alienate, destroy and recreate - and never remain the same. Their music contradicts reproduction and thereby allows the audience to experience a unique feeling of becoming part of the development of k3.
Some may call it Jazz - we call it art, anyways!
k3 - corners and edges - as a matter of principle!

Recently the new stuff has been released by konnex records, Berlin, on both CD and Vinyl. popstarr (CD) and popstarr + (vinyl) offer a selection of recorded work-pieces and hypnotic live sounds of k3. The trend towards reproduction and rigidity in today’s society, arts, culture and politics is the central theme of the thriving tunes.

martina

a felicitous balancing act between free jazz and pop
The second offering from k3 covers a wide musical spectrum, from brachial improv style to glocalised reggae tunes, as in
