Munich-based Italian jazz musician and improviser Sebi Tramontana (1960) tried out the guitar, then the soprano saxophone before settling on the trombone during his early twenties. Since the late eighties, he has rapidly become one of the key figures of European free improvisation, playing with all-star ensamble Italian Instabile Orchestra, Moers Brass Quintet, Transalpin Express Orchestra, and small groups and duos with his long-time collaborators such as Frank Gratkowski, Jeb Bishop, Georg Gräwe, Fred Lonberg-Holm or Joëlle Léandre.
With his intuitive approach to improvisation and exploration of timbres, Berlin-based Portuguese cellist Guilherme Rodrigues (1988) is using both classical and extensive techniques. His work probes the physicality of the space in which listening occurs. His music, comprising both acoustic and electro-acoustic works, has been described as delicate, intense, focused and highly physical. He is part of label Creative Sources Recordings, music director of Hošek Contemporary art gallery and active member of Ame Zek’s Reanimation Orchestra. / guilhermerodrigues.net
