Product Notes

K3 anti-cast... probably just an over-reaction to certain TV casting shows honest, open, down-and-dirty, absolutely unpredictable... About k3... Herbert Könighofer (sax, flutes) Robert Kainar (drums, perc., electronics) Klaus Kircher (double-bass, e-bass, guit.) K3 have been referred to as the enfants terribles of the Austrian Jazz scene. With their fusion of acoustically and electronically generated beats and sounds, the three unconventional artists walk on a tightrope between pop and free jazz. Their genre-busting style oscillates between dub, trance, noise and drum and base and the three musicians boldly defy conventions and create a space for artistic freedom. In doing so, they play Jazz in it's original meaning: crossing borders, pushing boundaries... far out! - keeping aloof from clichés and mainstream, leaving the beaten track of academic, inane high-speed Jazz. Improvisation, spontaneity and humour are the main ingredients of the soup they cook up during their performances. Music emerges; it happens live - exclusively! k3 reinvent themselves with every performance. They alienate, destroy and recreate - and never remain the same. Their music contradicts reproduction and thereby allows the audience to experience a unique feeling of becoming part of the development of k 3. Some may call it Jazz - we call it art, anyways! k3 - corners and edges - as a matter of principle! Previous Projects: K3 goes India - with Ranajit Sengupta on the sarode and vocals and Prabir Kumar Mitra on the tablas, both from Calcutta, India. New Year's Programme: K3 plays Strauss Ganz in Weiss (All in White) Pop Song Parade with k3 K3- The Karaoke Show Charles Bukowski, ein Jazzer der Dichtung With guests: Karl Ritter, The Lumberjacks, Christian Wegscheider, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Gerry Dial, Nazide, Gottfried Stöger, Ranajit Sengupta, Prabir Kuma Mitra, Dj Aegyd and many others. Selected Performances: Jazz Festival Zagreb; Vienna City Festival; Porgy and Bess, Vienna; Jazzit, Salzburg; Thueringer Jazzmeile..... CDs: popstarr (konnex records 2004) geschuettelt ... nicht geruehrt ( ATS records2002) Vinyl: popstarr+ (konnex records 2005) Cinema: K3...I und ! A Movie by Sina Moser (2005) Recently the new stuff has been released by konnex records, Berlin, on both CD and Vinyl. Popstarr (CD) and popstarr + (vinyl) offer a selection of recorded work-pieces and hypnotic live sounds of k 3. The trend towards reproduction and rigidity in today's society, arts, culture and politics is the central theme of the thriving tunes.
