Simon Bräumer-Pascal Klewer Duo
The two cologne-based musicians Pascal Klewer (tp) and Simon Bräumer (dr) have performed together in numerous groups, since January 2017 the form the duo ,,Bräumer/Klewer”.
“The intimacy of the duo and the constant interaction and dialog is what tempts us”, says the duo. Furthermore the unusual setup motivates them to find new ways beyond the conventional roles of their instruments.
Foregrounded are Improvisation and freedom concerning the minimalistic construed own compositions.
The Music of the trio Bräumer/Klewer/Eftychidou is full of surprises. Tense grooves paired with radical spontaneity and the desire to enter unknown territories is what makes this trio so exciting. The cohesion of the three musicians is based on trust and the creative process to create something new, yet beautiful.
Their Debutalbum is going to be released later this year, recorded/mixed/mastered by Clemens Orth at Salon de Jazz .

Victor Fox and Pascal Klewer met over 4 years ago at the Youth Jazz State Orchestra Hessen. Since then they´ve played numerous concerts together in China, Canada, Litovia, Latvia, with stars like Dee Dee Bridgewater, Evan Parker, Peter Brötzmann, Kit Downes, Christian Lillinger and many more. Together they played on several records of the LJJO Hessen, the Mainz based nonet Shaikh9 and on Pascal´s debut record with his bigband.
Their continous work together in numerous ensembles and their similar interest in music brought them close together and the idea came up to work on this unusual and uncommon duo constellation and to test its possibilities and borders. The duo´s music consists of notated music, grafic scores and free improvisations.
