New Improvised Music Series #15: HANS KOCH & THOMAS PETER (Zurich), Visions Gallery, Brisbane.

Hans Koch (Bass Clarinet) & Thomas Peter (Electronics)
Joe M & B.H. (Electronics)
Adam Sussmann (Guitar), Tim Green (Drums) & Max Fowler Roy (Double Bass)


Hans Koch has quit his carreer as a recognised classical clarinetist to become one of the most innovative improvising reed-players in Europe.
He has been working with everyone from Cecil Taylor to Fred Frith since the eighties. As a composer he has shaped the sound of Koch-Schütz-Studer since the beginning as well as working for radio-plays and film.
Since the nineties he has been working with electronics as an extension of the saxes/clarinets as well as with sampling/sequencing/Laptop. As a reed-player he is always working on his very own vocabulary and sound, which makes him a very unique voice on the actual scene.

Thomas Peter is a musician and composer, based in Zürich, Switzerland. He is active in the broad field between composed, improvised electronic music and sound installations.
His interests lie in the physical, tactile spacious display of electronic- and acoustical sound objects. While in his sound installations acoustical, unconscious sounds are transformed into another spatial context, his live-performances deals either with the acoustical result of tactile actions on amplified objects or with the physical and spatial display of electronic sound objects.
He recently composed music for an installation-project of the ensemble phoenix with Olaf Nicolai in Basel (Switzerland) and has performed many concerts as solo artist and as an interpreter of contemporary music in Europe, Asia, North- and South-America. Thomas Peter studied audiodesign and improvisation at the Hochschule für Musik in Basel, Switzerland.

Here is a quote from Joel Stern (Skyneedle, Cypress Hill Song Label, Otherfilm) about REALBAD

 “I could see straight away that there was this amazing rebellious atmosphere in the underground music scene of not giving a fuck but at the same time also being really caring of each other. There were these gestures in the artwork that were really anti-establishment. However, not just the traditional establishment like the police or the government or straight society but also against the establishment of their own conventions. It was subversive even against itself. I think that tradition is really carried on by places such as Real Bad”
