Album-Präsentation 'Immersion'

We start the live-stream (real time, stream is not on demand!) about 1/2 h before the show starts. By clicking on "Now Live" a window opens, where you can watch the concert free of charge and without any registration. If you want, you can support this project with "Pay as you wish". Thank you & welcome to the real & virtual club!

With a genuine blend of musical infuences, unconventional original compositions and energetic live performances, the Austrian trio KO·AX explores the boundaries of Contemporary Jazz.

The band's name derives from a term originating in geometry and describes a threedimensional element that has a common axis of reference. This metaphor becomes the premise in the music of Lukas Leitner (piano, synthesizer), Walter Singer (double bass) and Lukas Laimer (drums): Interaction takes center stage, individual insertions are coaxially united. Starting from reduced compositions, the three musicians fuse Jazz and Improvisation with borrowings from Rock, Electronic Music, New Music, etc. to create a rousing mixture that knows how to unfold its effect – especially live. Minimal Music elements encounter synthesizer pads, twelve-tone rows converge with energetic grooves and catchy melodies meet the fragile sound world of Contemporary Jazz. After numerous concerts with their debut album "Loose Frames" (e.g. at Treibhaus Innsbruck, Urban Bloom Festival Vienna, OK Deck Linz), the frst acclaimed live premieres of the new program "Immersion" (e.g. at Osterfestival Tirol, Alte Schmiede Vienna) and a studio recording followed in 2021/2022. KO·AX' new album will be released on the Viennese label Listen Closely at the end of January 2023. Subsequently, the band will embark on a release tour.
