The last weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster ride – from feeling pressurized and nervous to the wonderful and moving live-release concert last Tuesday at Vienna´s Porgy & Bess music club. Here are some impressions by photographer Rania Moslam:

She smiled sweetly – “NEAPEL” premiere!!!

The last two months I spent writing music for string quartet and electronics. “Neapel” is a 35-minute long suite of original compositions that will be premiered on March 25, at the amazing JazzWerkstatt Wien ZOOM! Festival. Here’s a video trailer with short audio and video clips from our rehearsals:

The fantastic Studio Dan Strings will join me on stage and we had a great time working on my new music. The track list of the suite will be: “Neapel”, “Airport Titanic”, “Corona Rosa”, “Kleine Schokoladen” and “Shoulder Press”. In case you can’t be part of the crowd at the premiere concert, you have the chance to listen to “Kleine Schokoladen” and an interview with me about the festival’s program on Austria’s main cultural radio station Ö1, also on March 25, 11:00pm on Zeit-Ton: oe1.orf.at

Here some rehearsal photos:





Don’t miss the fantastic ZOOM! Festival next week, I think it’s a great, diverse line-up:



Goodbye and all the best from Vienna and Napoli – Clemens







Like a Rolling Stone

The “MORPHING” project was a great experience for me and I think it worked out pretty fine. I´m looking forward to presenting the program in Vienna next year 2013.
THIS you have to see:

The music is performed by JazzWerkstatt Wien New Ensemble and young digital animation artist Nikolai Maderthoner made this film by himself over the last year. I think it´s an incredible work. This man is 19 years old and designed everything in this music video. Please share!

The nee. EP “The Truth is on Fire” can be ordered now. Get your physical copy here: www.jazzwerkstatt-records.com
Or download here at iTunes.

I´m very much looking forward to a Jam Session taking place at legendary club Blue Tomato on December 4th. I´ll play the opening set with great musicians Judith Ferstl, Herbert Pirker and Sixtus Preiss. With us will be physician Stefan Nimmrichter from the Quantum Nanophysics Group. We´ll mix improvised groove music with a lecture about quantum physics. That´s what I like! Come join the jam!
