Peter Brötzmann, the legendary, internationally renowned saxophonist and founding father of European free and new jazz from Wuppertal, will celebrate his eightieth birthday in 2021. As one of the most uncompromising and unorthodox musicians on the improvising scene, he has been inspiring and influencing other artists for decades, including those working in the filed of new music. He shares a long-standing artistic friendship with the partners in his trio, the percussionist and composer Michael Wertmüller (D.I.E) and the bassist Marino Pliakas. Unfettered energy and raw power at an ecstatic tempo contrasted with a cool ballad sound make the music of this cult trio unmistakable.

The cult concert series continues – in 2021 at the Gebläsehalle in Duisburg. Here the free jazz legend Peter Brötzmann will celebrate his eightieth birthday together with his trio Full Blast, while on drums solo performer Fritz Hauser will even inspire ghosts to start dancing. The American trumpeter and improvisation artist Peter Evans and the Serbian multimedia composer Svetlana Maraš will meet for the first time in an electro-acoustic duo. And with the founder of the Electronic Music Studio in Kiev Alla Zagaykevych and her one-time student Yana Shlyabanska, two generations of Ukranian enelctronic music enter a dialogue.
