BARRY GUY (UK) - double bass, composition
impromptu.works ensemble (Hamburg)

An diesem zweiten TAOI Abend in 2023 freuen wir uns außerordentlich auf unsere hochkarätigen Gäste, den Improvisator, Bass-Virtuosen und Komponisten Barry Guy und die Barock-Geigerin Maya Homburger, die gemeinsam mit den jungen Musiker*innen des impromptu.works ensembles ein eigens für diesen Abend geschriebenes Programm von Barry Guy auf der Bühne des Resonanzraums St. Pauli zur Aufführung bringen werden.

Mit diesem Konzert setzten wir die neue Programmausrichtung von TAOI fort, in der wir einen der beiden Abende der Improvisation in einer größeren Besetzung des impromptu.works ensembles widmen. Gleichzeitig haben wir das große Glück, mit Barry Guy an diesem Abend einen unserer lang gehegten Wunschgäste  begrüßen zu können. Es gibt sehr wenige Musiker*innen, die über Jahrzehnte so erfolgreich und konsequent mit large Ensembles gearbeitet haben, wie er es getan hat - angefangen beim 1970 gegründeten, inzwischen legendären London Jazz Composers Orchestra (LJCO), dem Barry Guy New Orchestra (BGNO) bis zur aktuellen “Blue Shroud Band”. Für diese und andere Ensembles hat Barry Guy eine ganze Reihe von Kompositionen geschrieben, die auf ganz besondere Weise kompositorische Ordnungsstrukturen mit improvisatorischen Spielpraktiken verbinden und dabei neue Klangwelten erschließen.

Darüber hinaus widmet sich Barry Guy gemeinsam mit seiner Lebensgefährtin, der großartigen Barock-Geigerin Maya Homburger der Kombination von Alter und Neuer Musik und der Improvisation - ihre erste Duo CD “Ceremony” erschien auf ECM, die CD “Dakryon” mit guest artist Pierre Favre, perkussion auf dem MAYA label und die Duo CD “Tales of Enchantment" auf Intakt Records.

Gemeinsam mit dem impromptu.works ensemble, dass aus herausragenden jungen Musiker*innen der Hamburger Musikszene besteht, werden Maya Homburger und Barry Guy ein Konzertprogramm erarbeiten, das wir an diesem Abend mit unserem Publikum im Resonanzraum St. Pauli teilen möchten.

Wir sind also sehr gespannt auf dieses ganz besondere Projekt und freuen uns auf ein einmaliges Konzerterlebnis.

Und wie immer natürlich auch auf Sie/ Euch,

Vlatko Kučan
mit dem TAOI Team & den Künstler*innen

english version:

On this second TAOI evening in 2023, we are very much looking forward to our two outstanding guests, improvisor, bass virtuoso and composer Barry Guy and baroque violinist Maya Homburger, who, together with the young musicians of our impromptu.works ensemble, will perform a program written and arranged especially for this evening by Barry Guy on the stage of the Resonanzraum St. Pauli.

We are thus continuing our new TAOI program orientation by dedicating one of the two evenings to improvisation with a larger line-up of the impromptu.works ensemble. At the same time, we are very lucky to be able to welcome Barry Guy, one of our long-cherished dream guests, on this evening. There are very few musicians who have worked as successfully and consistently with large ensembles over the decades as he has - from the now legendary London Jazz Composers Orchestra (LJCO), founded in 1970, the Barry Guy New Orchestra (BGNO) and to the current  “Blue Shroud Band”. For these and other ensembles, Barry Guy has written a whole series of compositions that combine compositional structures with improvisational performance practices in a very special way, thereby opening up new sound worlds.

Together with his partner, the great baroque violinist Maya Homburger, Barry Guy also devotes himself to the combination of early and new music and improvisation - their first duo CD "Ceremony" was released on ECM, the CD "Dakryon" with guest artist Pierre Favre, percussion on the MAYA label and the duo CD "Tales of Enchantment" on Intakt Records.

With the impromptu.works ensemble, Maya Homburger and Barry Guy will be working on a concert program that we would like to share with our Hamburg audience on this evening.

We are therefore very excited about this very special project and look forward to a unique concert experience.

And, as always, we look forward to seeing you,

Maya Homburger originally moved to England to join various ancient music ensembles and became one of the leaders of John Eliot Gardiner's "English Baroque Soloists".
Ever since meeting the composer and solo bassist Barry Guy - on the occasion of an extended concert tour with Christopher Hogwood’s Academy of Ancient Music in 1988 - she has devoted her time developing her own personal style on the baroque violin as well as managing Improvised and New Music projects and running her own CD label Maya Recordings.
The idea to perform baroque solo works in the context of free improvised music and newly commissioned pieces sparked off the Homburger/Guy Duo and together Maya Homburger and Barry Guy have given concerts in many major Jazz, New Music and Baroque Music Festivals all over Europe and in Canada.
Her specialities are performances of H.I.F. Biber's Mystery Sonatas as well as chamber music and cantatas by J.S.Bach.
After living in Ireland for nine years where they contributed both to the early as well as the contemporary music scene, they moved to Switzerland in 2006. The close connection to Ireland however remained : From 2011-2017 they organised their own music and art festival in Ireland : Barrow River Arts Festival (BRAF) and they perform regularly in various Irish festivals and concert series with the ensemble "Camerata Kilkenny".
Recordings include a. o. the Duo CDs “Ceremony” (ECM) and “Dakryon” (MAYA Recordings). The recording of the complete set of H. I. F. Biber's (1644-1704) famous Mystery Sonatas for violin and basso continuo has also been released on the MAYA label as well as a series of three solo violin CDs with J.S.Bach's Sonatas and Partitas BWV1001-1006 paired with Barry Guy's works for solo violin, called the "Butterfly Series" : “Inachis”, “Aglais” and “Lysandra”. Another ECM recording is “Folio” where she appears as violin soloist together with the Munich Chamber Orchestra. The latest Homburger/Guy Duo CD has appeared on the Intact Records Label and is called “Tales of Enchantment”. She also appears together with the Barry Guy New Orchestra (BGNO) as soloist on the Intakt CD "Amphi" and in various recordings with the Blue Shroud Band.
Maya Homburger plays on three baroque violins which are all in original, historic condition: Antonio dalla Costa, Treviso 1740, Samuel Thompson, London 1720, Thomas Perry, 1780 Dublin. She also plays - with the baroque bow of course - on a beautiful modern violin built in 2020 by the German luthier Stefan-Peter Greiner.





Barry Guy is an innovative bass player and composer whose creative diversity in the fields of jazz improvisation, chamber and orchestral performance and solo recitals is the outcome both of an unusually varied training and a zest for experimentation, underpinned by a dedication to the double bass and the ideal of musical communication.
He is founder and Artistic Director of the London Jazz Composers Orchestra and the BGNO (Barry Guy New Orchestra) for which he has written several extended works. In 2014 he founded the “Blue Shroud Band” to perform his composition “The Blue Shroud” based on Picasso’s painting “Guernica” with texts by the Irish poet Kerry Hardie.
His concert works for chamber orchestras, chamber groups and soloists have been widely performed and his skilful and inventive writing has resulted in an exceptional series of compositions.
Barry Guy continues to give solo recitals throughout Europe as well as continuing associations with colleagues involved in improvised, baroque and contemporary music.
In 2016 Barry Guy was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Middlesex , London and also appointed Visiting Professor to the Rhythmic Conservatory in Copenhagen.
Among his is current ensembles are the Homburger / Guy Duo, the "Acanthis" Trio with Lucas Niggli and Maya Homburger, the Duo with Jordina Milla, the Parker / Guy / Lytton trio, "Tarfala" with Mats Gustafsson and Raymond Strid, the Trio with Torben Snekkestad and Agusti Fernandez, “Free Radicals” with Peter Evans (tpt) and Agusti Fernandez (piano) as well as various piano trios: The Izumi Kimura Trio with Gerry Hemingway, the trio with Agusti Fernandez and Zlatko Kaucic and the longstanding trio with Marilyn Crispell and Paul Lytton.
“Folio” his work for strings, baroque violin, violin and improvising bass was released on ECM, “Time Passing…” with the Camerata Zürich and the vocal soloists Anja Pöche, Savina Yannatou and Matthew Brook on the Maya Recordings Label.
In 2019 he completed a commission for the KRONOS String Quartet as part of their series “50 for the Future”.
His solo works for violin, played by Maya Homburger, can be heard, framed by the Sonatas and Partitas by J.S. Bach, on three solo violin CDs released on the Maya Recordings Label.

Das Spiel und Kompositionen der 1998 in Schwäbisch Gmünd geborenen Saxophonistin Julia Langenbucher sind geprägt von der Vision einer Musik, die sich nicht durch stilistische Grenzen einengen lässt, sondern sich ihren eigenen Weg sucht.

Composer-Performer Jana De Troyer positions herself at the dynamic borders between styles and disciplines. Concurrently, she deftly switches between her roles of composer, free improviser, instrumentalist, human, sound artist and programmer. Coming from a background as a contemporary saxophonist, Jana has always been curious about further exploring and fusing various modes of expression. This “Experimentierfreude” has brought about a myriad of creative collaborations with composers, musicians and artists from other disciplines such as visual arts, dance and coding.
An experienced interpreter of scores, Jana strives to translate artist’s ideas as accurately as possible, whether it be conventionally notated or in more open forms such as text scores, video scores or graphical scores. She has studied the Western saxophone canon and greatly relishes assisting and collaborating with living composers on the realisation of new work. Led by the joy of performing, she enters the stage with or without instruments, using whatever is necessary to bring her collaborator’s ideas to life.
Jana’s open mindset can also be seen in her improvisational practice, where she actively combines her classical and contemporary saxophonist training with other sound sources, movement and electronics. She has had the pleasure to play with great improvisers in a range of constellations, varying from duo performances to improvisation orchestras and on stages from Stockholm to Palermo.
Her own compositional output consists of both instrumental and electronic music, as well as interactive installations, web art and audiovisual works. She has developed works for knitting guitar quartet (Fashionista’s), kissers (DU-O), a window cleaner (Putzzwang), Tiktok-loving improvisers (FMO_1), meditating audience and cactus (Intimate Space Study 1a), and more. At the core of her work is a deep sonic exploration of non-musical concepts, which often leads to the integration of interdisciplinary means.

Tam Thi Pham plays electronic music, objects and Dan Bau (traditional Vietnamese instrument). One of her main interests is working with choreographers and dancers both as an improviser and as a composer. One aspect of this made networked music performance a focus of her current works (2020-), with the “2×2 WindowS” project (a collaboration with Japanese dancer Minori Sumiyoshiyama) garnering a lot of attention in Asia (Japan, Vietnam, Indonesia) and her “here&there” project being awarded funding and support from Goethe Institute in Hanoi. Another big interest of Tam Thi Pham lies in microtonal music, which she sees as both an expressive element and a research tool, helping her immerse herself into the rich culture of traditional Vietnamese music and transform it into a new, contemporary language and forms.
Besides her activities as a composer and a performer, she was also very active as an organizer of various discussions on contemporary music and art and concerts in Hanoi and Hamburg. She has also been participating at festivals in Vietnam, Germany, Japan, Indonesia and Serbia. such as: “Hanoi Sound Stuff Festival”, Hanoi, 2014; “Hanoi New Music Festival”, Hanoi, 2013 and 2018; “Beyond Sound” – a series of concerts of experimental music, Heritage space, Hanoi; 2016, 2017 and 2018; “Dance and music camp” with composer Heine Goebbels, Hanoi 2018; “New Music Festival”, Lüneburg, 2016, 2018 – 2021; “Blurred edges” festival, Hamburg, 2019, 2021; “41.

has been acquainted with the Helsinki electronic music scene for the past decade both as a musician and an event organizer. Toikkanen’s own productions include conceptual electronics such as compositions formed from vibrations of plant matter. Recently Toikkanen has been extending his music production into the field of live-coding and computer-assisted composition. His approach to forming sound is close to crafting ceramics. For Viktor, sound is like clay which you shape into more complex forms. There is no beginning or end. Music is always playing. It is just about the space and time where you step in and out.
