Import CD – RRJ 1017 – Hexaphone – Katja Cruz feat. Oliver Lake

Hexaphone is a cosmology of improvisation. These are the coordinates provided by the title of the new multi-form work published by Rudi Records. A multimedia project led by Austrian singer Katja Cruz. The “Hexaphone” music is the real-time interpretation of graphic scores based on the geometry of the platonic bodies. Furthermore the complex geometry of the ” flower of life” and the “hexagram” appear as a source of inspiration for the music comprised in “Hexaphone. Special guest of the project: the great saxophonist Oliver Lake, major founder of the historic “Black Artists Group” from St. Louis and of legendary World Saxophone Quartet. Completing the quintet, Andrea Massaria (guitar ) Howard Curtis (drums) Patrick Dunst (bass clarinet , flute , sax ) and Patrik Lechner (electronics and visuals.) Dense and imaginative music produced by the magical interplay between the musicians, sound and image. An effect perfectly captured through audio (CD) and video (DVD).
