about

For a long time I haven't made an album that doesn't fit anywhere like this one. FUZZY LOGIC was created in spring 2018 during the four-week preparation phase for two solo concerts as opener for Michael Gira at the Volksbühne in Berlin and at Kampnagel Hamburg. Making recordings has always been a good way for me to prepare for bigger, important concerts. In this case it was especially important to me to avoid the stylistic constraints between free jazz and the so-called "improvised music close to new music". But I also didn't want to abandon myself completely to the modal melancholy that has always fascinated me so much about the masterful power of Michael Gira's guitar riffs since I heard the Swans live in a small hall in the dystopian ruins of the Saarland steel industry when I was twenty years old. The confrontation with these three poles of influence during the rehearsal phases for the concerts drew me into a very exciting and productive no man's land. I knew even then that this music will be ripped apart by many: the jazzers will say "that's just distorted noise", the Echtzeitmusik-people will once again nag at all those minor chords and the indie rock fans will shake their heads in vain looking for the beat. But unrootedness is also a power, a gift, a way.
