RaaDie: VAST POTENTIAL
FRIDAY, JAN 18 2019, 07:30 PM
Trumpet meets e-zither and electronics on January 18. For our first concert of 2019, we present Vienna-based trumpeter Lorenz Raab and the composer, bassoonist, and zither player Christof Dienz with their latest musical project, RaaDie. Lorenz Raab (Volksoper Vienna, XY-Band, Bleu, Helbock/Raab ...) and Christof Dienz (Die Knoedel, Quadrat:sch, XY-Band, Phace, …) are household names in Vienna’s music scene. Join us for the presentation and US premiere of their debut-album Vast Potential.
In January 2019, RaaDie will release their debut-album Vast Potential with the Berlin based label Traumton. The album includes compositions with free space for improvisation. It is mainly quiet music with a lot of time for dramaturgic development. Endless melodies of the trumpet are accompanied by filigree sounds and rhythms by the e-zither. The lineup is small, but the music opens big spaces, at the same time, intriguing the audience into the sensation of listening to several instruments simultaneously.
