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. The unusual setup/context motivates us to find new ways beyond the conventional roles of our 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 .
