Kai Fagaschinski

Fagal: Kai Fagaschinski & Berhard Gal

clarinetist | composer/performer | nightwatch
* 6.10.1974 in dannenberg/elbe (d)

The berlin-based clarinetist and composer/performer focuses on a subtle musicality of sound and noise phenomena. As an autodidact he has developed an anomalous language on his instrument. His music is rooted in abstractness, including increasingly an insidious expressivity and a pre-melodic quality. He works on the borderline of composition and improvisation, with a preference for long-term collaborations.

 

His projects are the international nothing - clarinet duo with Michael Thieke (cd: mainstream, ftarri 2006 / less action, less excitement, less everything, ftarri 2010), los glissandinos with Klaus Filip (cd: stand clear, creative sources 2005), the magic i.d. - song project with Margareth Kammerer, christof Kurzmann & Michael Thieke (cd/vinyl: till my breath gives out, erstwhile 2008), duo with Burkhard Stangl (cd: musik - ein portrait in sehnsucht, erstwhile 2009), the dogmatics with Chris Abrahams, here comes the sun with Gunter Schneider & Barbara Romen, kommando raumschiff zitrone with Christof Kurzmann (cd: first time ever i saw your face, quincunx 2006), duo with Bernhard Gal (cd: going round in serpentines, charhizma 2005), Rebecca with Michael Renkel (cd: rebecca [two variations], charhizma 2003), no furniture with Boris Baltschun and Axel Dörner (cd: no furniture, creative sources 2003), and (exceptionally) SOLO.

Cover the ingredients and let the steam do the rest.

It's a simmering music freshly prepared in front of the audience.
To be consumed by preference immediately.
