Saxophone, clarinet: Sven Decker
Double bass: Matthias Akeo Nowak
Drums, Garrahand: Christoph Hillmann
(New date for the cancelled representation originally scheduled for March 22, 2020)
The drummer and percussionist Christoph Hillmann is a man of many talents. He performs with prominent jazz and world music artists, and his sounds provide a backdrop for radio plays and dance choreography. He’ll introduce us to a special instrument, the Garrahand, that has only existed since 2007. He says that its qualities and beautiful sound are reminiscent of the slit drum, kalimba, and handpan. For Hillmann, an additional perk is that the Garrahand can be easily tuned and connected to amplifiers and loop stations. This means that modulation is never a problem, inspiring him to create new compositions with very different tunings.
