Böseblick was initiated by me in August 2021, when Sowieso invited me to organize a concert. Being a bit bored of seeing the same groups consisting of the same people in the improvised music scene in Berlin, I decided to bring together a group of musicians that had almost no connections to that scene. The result was a big success and we decided to continue as a band. Our name is a misspelled version of the German phrase for “evil eye” and comes from our vain attempts at making a band photo after our Sowieso concerts. Although the musicians were initially brought together by me, the group is completely non-hierarchical and I am nothing more than a member.
Böseblick was funded in 2022 by Initiative Neue Musik Berlin. This allowed them to rehearse regularly and present the results at a concert at KM28 in March 2022. Below are some excerpts from that concert.
