A duo of the Berlin-based Croatian vocalist Vesna Pisarovic and a German trumpet player Axel Dörner is, at its base, an exploration of timbre and sound. An intimate dialogue of the Two, nevertheless, opens up an entire cosmos made up of collisions, attractions and repulsions, interpunctions, repetitions, differences, with layers of the melodic, both folkish and classical, becoming interspersed with experiments in phrasing, language, tonality, pulse, rhythms, all along an ammunition of “extended techniques”.
Vesna Pisarović was immersed in music from an early age: through formal education in flute, through youthful experiments in punk-rock, through a rigorous study of vocal techniques, and, even more distantly, through a degree in phonetics and linguistics at the University of Zagreb. An encounter with the music of the free jazz artist Peter Brötzmann in a Berlin club would turn her experience around. Enchanted by such intensity and expressive freedom, Vesna decided to devote herself to the study of jazz. She currently resides in Berlin where she performs with many renowned musicians such as Greg Cohen, Tony Buck, Chris Abrahams and many others.
Axel Dörner is one of the most unique voices in free improvisation. He developed a completely different language for the trumpet in the late 1990s. Most of the ensembles he is part of are characterized by a non-hierarchical collaboration of the musicians involved. Since 2000 he is working on an electronic extension of his music on the trumpet (together with Sukandar Kartadinata). Dörner has lived in Berlin since 1994 and is an integral part of the Berlin scene of new improvisational and experimental music. Axel Dörner has won the SWR Jazzprize 2006 and Jazzprize of the city of Berlin 2019. His discography consists at this time of more than 150 CDs & LPs.
