Michel Pilz

The German-Luxembourgian bass clarinet player Michel Pilz is one of the world's most original and imaginative musicians in the field of improvisation music since the end of the 1970ies. He planned his project RESSUAGE together with a mastermind of the French free improvisation scene, the Parisian drummer Jean-Noël Cognard. On RESSUAGE there are no themes or changes, collective improvisation is the rule. Wouldn't there be some extremely exciting irritations: first of all the surprisingly jazzy bass ostinati in an almost groovy manner, then the soundscapes of the band's two „electronic technicians“ Patrick Müller und Sébastian Rivas. They re-define the band's ways of communication in improvisation over and over again and sometimes even edit live the acoustic signal of each.
