Album Notes
Trondheym is a journey. A film.
Guitarist and composer Gerhard Schmitt is the director and, at the same time, protagonist of the musical motion picture about the vastness of space.

Together with trumpet player Nikolaus Neuser, he leads the musical adventure and invites the audience to wander through the taiga, to walk on the moon, to follow a sea mammal under water, to fight themselves through a siberian snowstorm, to pick a buttercup, to wallow in the sand, and sometimes even to fly to pluto.

Live on stage, countless effect units and switches get activated, sometimes by the feet, while at the same time the guitar and the trumpet get played and sometimes by the hands, while the music is carried either by loops that were played and previously recorded live, or by a syncronized laptop.

Trondheym came into existence, first and foremost, as a live configuration. All songs grew under these conditions and, only after interactive playing, the wish was realized, to further-produce the music that was developed in this way.

Following an invitation from the german embassy,
Trondheym toured through asia in december 2005, and represented Germany at the 5th European Jazz Festival in both Hanoi and Ho-Chi-Minh-City (Vietnam). Concerts in Thailand and China followed in collaboration with the Goethe Institut.

Press Quotations:

Trondheym successfully does the splits between sounding catchy, but also exciting and new at the same time.
Jazzthetik May 2008

Twelve blazing onomatopoeic titles. Both, melodic as well as relaxing, and - as a unified collection - sensational.
Jazzpodium May 2008

Trondheym electrifies musically.
Neue Ruhr Zeitung Oct.10th 2006

Neuser and Schmitt do not settle for fashionable trends, but rather set their course for a courageous and meaty mixture of contemporary, synthetic club sounds with the result lying somewhere between ambient-dub, drum & bass and a jazz-typic culture of improvisation. And, every time when Neuser takes the trumpet, a fresh wind blows through the often unfamiliar soundscapes of Trondheym.
Jazz Thing February/March 2006

Their pieces, atmospherically, remind one of the spanish sketches of a well-known trumpet player, but the fully electronic rhythmic priming leaves no doubt of the presence of modern time...
DIE ZEIT Online December 2005
