Franziska Baumann, Christoph Baumann, Meinrad Kneer, Korhan Erel

Korhan Erel met Franziska Baumann during the Neighbours Festival in Bern, Switzerland, in June 2014. As musicians who use technology creatively to perform avant-garde improvised music, they hooked up quickly and discussed possibilities of playing together. Franziska brought Christoph Baumann (piano) with her to Berlin in November 2014 and Korhan asked Meinrad Kneer (double bass) to complete the quartet. They played one concert as a quartet and one as a trio (less Christoph) in Berlin, and continued after that to explore new collaboration opportunities. After 1,5 years, they meet again in Berlin for one concert at Miss Hecker on March 20, to be followed by two concerts in Zürich and Bern in Switzerland on April 1 and 2.
