Sinfonia De Carnaval is inspired by the expressive tonal discours of Jazz using different elements of Classical music, Rock and Funk. Sinfonia De Carnaval create a sonic universe out of the whole soundspectrum of their instruments, which is sometimes also mixed with electronic sounds. In their compositions the inner souls of hideous, beautiful, haunting, eerie, noisy, tender, loving, grumbling, dangerous, raging, good, bad, enchanting, wild or tragic figures are ignited.
MILLYCENT is about to shoot up into the sky of funkyversum. She decided over night to become the Queen of Mumble-Rap. Asked why she'll answer: "Cauz I'm dancing on the inside. Beat & Mumble are my volcanos lava!"
This Solo-Project combines bits of old disco hits with new lyrics, rearranged beats and unexpected harmonies. Milly Grozs' improvisation on the common grounds of evergreens drift into comedy, the absurd or free tonality. Her joy in combining free improvisation, jazz and disco pop, matcho lyrics of the 60s and feminist positions, hip hop, swing and weird sounds makes the Millycent-concerts an experience for very mixed Audiences. (Benny Omerzell)
The music of Dsilton consists of energetic arrangements in microtonal tunings with modulating rhythms. At Dsiltons current program, cycles of Georg Vogel & David Dornig are interlocked. Concerning the techniques of composition and the frames for improvisation all pieces share together complex grooves and the extended tonality of 31-tone tuning. The repertoire shows a range from enharmonically entangled improvisation forms, 31-tone serial compositions to arrangements of processed field recordings. This enharmonic microtonal journey is played on special instruments: newly built 31 tone keyboards called Claviton, drumset and a new eight string electric guitar with 31 frets per octave.
