January 2024

The Vorarlberg Jazz Orchestra is presenting two composers from its own ranks for the first time in 18 years. Long-time musical companions Martin Eberle and Benny Omerzell, who have become an integral part of the Austrian music landscape thanks to their work in bands such as Kompost3, 5K HD, Soap & Skin (and many more), combine their sound worlds in this joint composition for the JOV.

After numerous vocal projects (including collaborations with the 5/8erl in Ehr'n, Orges Toce, Fatima Spar, Vincent Pongracz & Renee Benson), the first purely instrumental program in a long time will be brought to the stage here.

A rhythm section soaked in electronic music and indie rock meets the warm versatility of Blech & Holz, which is allowed to wallow devotedly in grooves and clouds of sound and moves continuously in the tonal spectrum of minimum and maximum, roaring loud and sacredly quiet, dirty and beautifully clean.
