ULRICH DRECHSLER: CHROME
Jazz | Electronica | Specials | Adults
CHROME, the latest project from Amadeus prize-winner Ulrich Drechsler, takes ideas from neoclassicism and film music and fuses them together. This new music starts with absolute silence; then delicate lines and rhythms gradually combine to reach a graceful whole, in which every single sound is of fundamental significance. Music with a dream-like beauty, where everything is reduced to the essential.
A string trio and a live electronics performer create the CHROME experience, which progressively wraps the audience in a finely-woven, atmospheric carpet of sound. Finally we hear the moving tones of Ulrich Drechsler’s clarinet, which connects all the elements together.
“Liminal Zone” is saxophonist and clarinettist Ulrich Drechsler’s large-format project, which has been transcending musical boundaries now for many a year. Here is a universe of sounds, into which has flowed — through three separate, independent projects — all his musical influences and ideas; a place where he can experiment with those concepts, and ultimately bind them into new genres, styles and sounds. This is Ulrich’s giant, multi-coloured musical playground.
