UM:LAUT X Jetztmusik Festival: The Group in Mannheim
It’s the kick-off for a collaboration with one of the most exciting festivals in Germany:
UM:LAUT goes south and teams up with Jetztmusik Festival to join forces in the experimental field of music and beyond. On 29 March we hit the road and bring along a unique collective of Berlin-based musicians to Mannheim. We are happy and proud to present another night of improvisation with Efterklang’s Casper Clausen, multi-instrumentralist Greg Haines, drummer Francesco Donadello, and percussion wizard Tatu Rönkkö as our very special guests!

The project around Casper Clausen of the successful Danish indie band Efterklang, the British multi-instrumentralist Greg Haines, and the drummer and producer Francesco Donadello, considers itself an open forum for creative processes and spontaneous musical exchange. For each concert, further musicians are being invited, with renowned artists such as Peter Broderick, André de Ridder, Dustin O’Halloran, Andrea Belfi, Anne Müller, or Jóhann Jóhannsson being regular guests of the ensemble. This time the band will be joined by Tatu Rönkkö, Finland’s finest in improvisational percussion. Without predetermination and defined boundaries, the shows of The Group bring together new ideas, different impulses and stylistic diversity – the musicians respond to each other, with each other, to the space, and to the audience. With every sound and every piece being created anew, the project gives an intimate insight into the spontaneous interaction and the collective composition process. Making use of their wide range of electronic and acoustic instruments, The Group create an extraordinary and intense live experience: improvised chamber pop between ambient, electronica, dub, experimental and krautrock.
