Together with bassist and composer, Mario Ehrenberg-Kempf, exciting original songs have been produced for already two full Fire Orange Project albums.
In developing its artistic design, we stepped into contemporary Jazz in 2017 and presented our original ideas and arrangements live (see news, FB). Now new music is on the way once more reaching out to fascinating soundscapes (link).
In 2019 and early 2020, I played the drums in the Latin- & Funk-influenced Jazz-Fusion band Corazon from Hamburg, Germany.
The band enjoyed original music, mainly somewhat Jeff Lorber-ish sounding compositions of the vivid musician and Keyboarder Hans-Hermann Bornscheuer. Definitively, an intresting Quintett with electric piano, trumpet, saxophone, drumset and bass that created a unique micture between Jazz-Funk, Bossa and softer Fusion…
Besides embarking on the Fire Orange Project, other recent projects included different kind of orchestra collaborations, playing some percussions and contributing to productions of my friends with drum recordings.
Since around 2010, I support various orchestra projects in Hanover, Germany, by playing mainly drum set or snare drum for classic tunes, film score and also modern pieces.
Like the fire orange logo illustrates, the project expresses a burning, inner desire to share one’s own love for music to the outside world. Otherwise, a bright fire-orange is the color of a substantially high-valued casino chip that once cashed in, could make your life rich with excitement.
There are no rules for the (Jazz) styles being played except the fact that songs must be based on original compositions.
