OWN YOUR BONES provides space for racket, lyricism, research,
home, air and saliva. Space for the utterly sound unfolding of
two horns, strings and drums without clutching any concepts of
music, just their own uncompromised bones. The band is a clash of the cities of Cologne and Copenhagen and their jazz and improvised scenes.
This exact collaboration itself is pretty fresh but their joint work in other situations led naturally to this band and this sound. If folk bumps into metro, alpine herder's macaroni into fjords, modern creative into postkrautbop, Sannerz into Willisau, Madona into Weilburg, you get a new sensation of home.
The compositions and their way of playing reflect the protagnist's
backgrounds and musical influences and shape the atmosphere of the moment via versed gambling, improvisation and communication.
