Oliver Brouwer

https://oliverbrouwer.bandcamp.com/

Oliver Brouwer is a self taught pianist and composer who has been surrounded by music and creating compositions since an early age.  Over this time his music has found a contemplative, minimalist and spacious form.
He received a classical training as a chorister which allowed him to be immersed in and inspired by the rich spiritual wealth of both classical and contemporary choral music.
In 2016 after years of refining and expanding his piano technique and style, he completed his first collection of solo piano works.  LP1 was released by 1631 Recordings early the next year.  With renewed momentum, he wrote a second collection the following year.  This was recorded in a single night in Lancaster Priory and is to be released on May 25th.
Oliver is particularly inspired by the creative spark of improvisation, which touches both his set pieces and his expansive and uninhibited improvisations.  His performances are touched by a vulnerability and tension through his skill in recreating every piece every time he plays it.

Sebastian & Daniel Selke

CEEYS

‘Hybrid’ is a word that has always been vital to CEEYS’ vocabulary, but its application is not limited to the manner in which
cellist Sebastian Selke and his brother, pianist Daniel Selke, combine their two instruments so harmoniously. Instead, like the duo’s very name – which merges the words ‘VIOLONCELLE’ (fr.: cello) and ‘KEYS’ – it is reflective of their overall aesthetic, one in which they integrate the many ingredients that have helped shape them as both musicians and people.

“Brought up in the last decade of the former GDR, we use our releases to come to terms with our memories, impressions and feelings about these rather hybrid times.” – CEEYS

The award-winning work of the duo is provoked by their urge to explore recollections of their youth, both before and after the fall of the regime, and to apply those lessons and influences to contemporary music. CS’ idiosyncratic style is characterised by a rather reduced approach to composition and improvisation. In exploiting their knowledge of songwriting, textures and repetitive patterns, they create an experimental but accessible minimalism between avant-garde and pop that incorporates elements of jazz, ambient and classical chamber music. Sebastian and Daniel have been featured on numerous album releases and soundtracks. Sebastian has also collaborated with ÓlafurArnalds and Spitfire Audio. They’ve also reworked the likes of Peter Broderick, Carlos Cipa and Lambert, and released two albums of their own, 2016’s The Grunewald Church Session and 2017’s Concrete Fields, released by 1631 Recordings, distributed digitally worldwide by Decca Publishing and Deutsche Grammophon. In combination with a love poem by Rainer Maria Rilke, the music and visualization for the album Concrete Fields won the Special Award at the International Poetry Film Festival Vienna in 2017.

Finally the brothers also founded Q3Ambientfest, a carefully curated annual boutique music festival,FLIMMERKONZERTE, a film concert series in partnership with Filmmuseum Potsdam and the co-curated KOSMOSKONZERTE, a house concert series at Rechenzentrum Potsdam. Currently, CS are presenting their third album WÆNDE at the Berlin label Neue Meister. Here, they focus on the remembrance of 1989, a year which brought many changes. At the same time, music for their first solo EPs is in the making, once more at their Klingenthal Studio, named after the small East German town where Vermona once invented and built its instruments.
