ausland is happy to host the first musical encounter of Bertrand Gauguet (fr) on the saxophones with Robin Hayward (de) on tuba.

Bullock/Gauguet + Ermke/Tuerlinckx

5 Jun 2014 - 20:00

Andrea Ermke: mini discs, mixing board
Anaïs Tuerlinckx: piano

Mike Bullock: analog synthesizer
Bertrand Gauguet: amplified alto & soprano saxophones

Riding the line between instrumental free improvisation and electronic soundscape, Bullock & Gauguet trade roles back and forth: at times the saxophone acts as the nebulous ground to the synth’s figurations.
