Simon is an imminent natural force, when it comes to creating groove. He is part of the FAZER backbone and a virtuoso in forging percussive elements into a seamless curtain that embraces the listener. Together with Flurin Mück and Sebastian Wolfgruber he performs his solo outlets in a unique setup of an unseen variety of percussive instruments, polyrhythm and complex structures, down to minimalistic ASMR like soundscapes. His new release on Squama is his second solo album ‘Devi’. While his phenomenal debut ‘Laya’ was a percussive take on ambient and third stream minimalism, ‘Devi’ is a forceful statement of what contemporary drum music can sound like today.
Watoo is a gathering of three musicians from the jazz, ethno, Krautrock and psychedelic scene of Munich. Sascha Luer (Embryo) on saxophone, trumpet, flute and bass, Sebastian Wolfgruber (Embryo, LBT, Fazer) on drums and Andi Kainz (Karaba) on keyboards will offer a Watoo session as it occurs only once in the universe. The trio moves between improvisation and recognizable interaction and uses instant composition to convey listener’s sound awareness between cartoon dream landscapes and space battles.
