compositions for saxophone, voice and urban noises. telling the stories of the streets. integrating the noise and rhythm of urban life-style.
we live the city. we listen to the city. we play the city. we integrate the pulse and noise, the sound and stories of the city. why not just play with the trains, improvise with the conversation snippets of the streets, why not communicate face to face with the people of the city. we don´t need no concert room. the city is our stage.
do youswallow. do you swallow. do youswallow everyone who TASTES like me. #do you SWALLOW everyone #who tastes like me. the closer YOU step, the less "I HAVE" only the shadows wrapped around your neck, PAIN!!! by the hand, juicycoconut-skin, tongues of liquid #lust, LOVE do you swallow everyone who tastes like me?
"painting with lights the city surrenders streets bite nobody has spoken about this fight a distant sun whispers and we both rain tonight"
"untameable me dangerously wrapped around you you intimidate me by not moving a single finger inside of me i wanna smoke you coughs slide, neon lights, green screems too much cream between my legs and you disappear i don´t wanna step on you move"
each city has something that stays with you long after you left. a construction, a colour. a noise. a scent. a building. a typical place that goes way beyond the sightseeing routes. invite us to your city and explore new sounds and stories.

the project of URBAN STORIES integrates the sounds and stories of the city with compositions for voice and saxophone. their spontaneous pop-up concerts and performances want to bring a new awareness to music and surrounding noises. want to encourage a new way of thinking about concerts. the compositions reflect the musical background of both musicians, mixing elements of jazz, trash, poetry and classical music. a chamber-music experience in the streets with authentic stories.
