COSTA ERNSTING (nl)Hugo Costa & Philipp Ernsting form a new free jazz/improvisation duo from Rotterdam. Their music is created in and from the moment, resulting in a fine blend that can be both noisy and violent, sometimes melodic and subtle. Both musicians are skilled and very empathetic players, and enjoy exploring the interplay and space between pure rhythm, lyricism and harmony. The music is intended to always move forward and surprise.
Benjamin StrauchBenjamin Strauch, born 1985 in Weimar, Germany, is a pianist with a fixed point in Jazz. As a soloist, in trio and interacting with other art directions. Improvisation, spontaneous response to the place, the audience and to the line up come together with a wide range of sound possibilities. His playing comes equally from experience and re-creation. As a graduate of the Rotterdam Conservatory traditional Jazz is familiar to him. Exploring complex sounds his style has clear references to the Blues as well as an undertone of Soul. Raw sounds and structures are catalysts of a reciprocal reaction between ego and echo through players and audience. Freedom communicates with the moment when people call in between, move through the space or are surprised by themselves.
