Hello There!

bAgg*fisH 
It is the 1st CD of my duo with Viennese sax and sound explorer Michael Fischer.
We released this CD in 2013 with performances in the US, Canada, Austria and the Netherlands.

"... blurring the conventional distinctions between muscular free jazz, post-rock, psychedelic dramas and noisy outbursts. The duo's music is wrapped in an experimental, risk-taking envelope, mischievous, driving rhythms, and poetic resonance.
There is no doubt that bAgg*fisH created their own, highly idiosyncratic sound universe. One that is playful, uncompromising, and guarantees to keeps the listeners ears wide open"

"The Ambush Party... are four truly intelligent and empathetic improvisers who avoid the clichés of the free genre.
Their CD is called circus and their music without safety net is terribly exciting."
