DIE HOCHSTAPLER - THE BRAXTORNETTE PROJECT

In this project, we worked on two great american composers, Anthony Braxton and
Ornette Coleman, who both have a revolutionary vision of music, musicology, philosophy,
life; We used their compositions and their concepts to create our music; not copying, but
stealing them, restructurating their ideas according to ours, exploring a labyrinth of notes
and thoughts and improvisation, questioning the music sheets as a flexible material in
order to arrive at our own music.
