Thilo Seevers Ensemble

It was in 2013, when three creative minds found to each other, at the University of Arts in Graz, Austria.

Saint Chameleon

Now soft, then harsh and rude, the instruments and voices are combined to a story about our surroundings.

Saint Chameleon

While the band has a strong connection to the huge tradition of Jazz Piano Trios, the Ensemble always looks to expand the options of the traditional setup – in rhythm and groove, in harmony or in interplay. Profound knowledge of various musical languages combined with a highly non-restrictive working environment lead to a curious band sound that finds itself spotted in between contemporary Jazz, folkloric music and classical sounds.

Melody is king in the Ensemble and no matter if caught up in brain-murdering grooves, bouncing lines or melancholic scapes – there is a melodic bottom line that keeps things audible and direct.

The result of this musical mash-up: Modern Jazz tunes that combine subtle complexity and simple beauty.

The lyrics range from philosophical questions that life gives to roadtrips and sailormen. And so does the music itself. Its swinging, stomping, flowing and crushing the stereotypes that people have about rockmusic.
You can hear the spirit of artists like Tom Waits, C. W. Stoneking and Django Reinhardt. But also other genres of this world of music are to find in the sound of Saint Chameleon.

Marthinik’s Garden

The end of 2014 is gone, a new project is on. An utopic idea by drummer Matheus Jardim (BRA) and saxophonist Nikolaus Holler (AUT) seems to got kissed awake by the reality over night.

MOYA

Founded in 2011 by composer and poet Laura Lenhardt, this Modern Jazz Quintet digs into improvised music, focussing on the creation of larger forms and structures in Jazz.

Indeed – just a few days later pianist Thilo Seevers (GER) and bassist Marijn Van de Ven (NED) are joining the band. As a part of the so-called utopic idea the international quartet has been spread over three airplanes, heading to Natal, Brasil.

The conglomerat of these four sound chamaleons, doesn’t like (musical) boarders. After a brasil tour, bigger and more intimate concerts, a band-workshop and a gig on a radio the quartet grew together to one soul, one brain, one heart and invites the audience’s imagination to a dance of emotions and all kind of energies.

Expressive lyrics and musical poetry combined, the distinct sound of this ensemble subtly creates wild impressions, narrates the stories of minds in movement and invites the listener to enter a fantastic world, full of emotional contrasts.
