»The Scriabin Code found an essential part of the code: the sound, your own sound in it, going forward and playing it like it is yours. Play the originals like they were standards. That’s it, you cracked the code!«
Initiator, Clarinet and Composer
A man with three equally key roles: initiator, clarinetist and composer.
The inspiration for the SCRIABIN CODE overcame him in the year 2000 at a piano recital in the legendary Glenn-Gould-Studios – with Scriabin's préludes. Trained as a classical player and jazzist, the border crosser wasn't able to get Skrjabin out of his mind.
“Albrecht encodes something from the core of the selections, translates them
into new forms of sound.”
As one of the most sought after Jazz musicians of Germany, Daniel Prandl provides fantasy and accomplished improvisation on the grand piano. Both his work in broadcasting (NDR, WDR, SWR) as well as his work for the National Theatre and the Capitol in Mannheim are regularly in demand and can be heard on several CD recordings.
“Music can do that here too: Out of less to make the much quoted more. Bravo!” (soultrain)
In Scrjabin's Préludes sound forms, the excellent pianist Asli Kilic stands for the classical essence.
Educated by Paul Dan and Ragna Schirmer, among others, at the Colleges of Music in Cologne and Mannheim, parallel to their stirring concert work, she already published two of CDs which have been highly praised by the specialist magazines.
“Asli Kilic interpreted confidently, wonderfully soulful to extremely furious.”
On drums, Dirk Schilgen satisfies the many different styles with supreme ease and sensitivity. He has proven this for a long time – also as a band leader and composer – on many broadcasts and in theater productions as well as on international concert trips.
“A tremendous homage”
Crossing various musical borders has always been a most essential element in the work of classically trained double bassist Rebecca Mauch. Her numerous experiences, gained in renowned orchestras, on theatre stages, in chamber music, band projects or improvisation, enrich and ground the outstanding performance of the scriabin code.
“There are wonderful musical dream sequences to discover in it (…) of a lingering ambiguity.”
By profession, Reinhard Geller is busy in the craft of synaesthesia. He listens and watches. Then his live and uniquely modified visuals ultimately blend in each performance: sound mixer, music
producer, composer, painter and media arts artist.
“The symbiosis succeeds wonderfully.”(Mannheimer Morgen)
