KARL FRERS ART OF CHANGE

is a band of experienced musicians who realize a fascinating project. Consistently arranged compositions alternating with improvisations create a modern, exciting crossover vocal jazz that abducts to distant worlds or familiar spheres.
The unplugged music with its rich variety of timbres evolves from a high degree of creativity, enthusiasm and interaction. With electronic elements and the bespoke English lyrics it blends into a complex soundscape in tune with the times.

Johannes Schäfer

Johannes Schäfer has much to offer in addition to his contrabass.
As a bass player he has decades of experience from several jazz, funk-, latin, tango as well as folk-music formations. Furthermore, Schäfer demonstrates his skills in various orchestras and chamber music ensembles, as a theatre musician and as a solist.
As a composer he has gained a reputation in the area of contemporary chamber and orchestral music, he composed numerous jazz pieces, electronic music, musicals and an oratory.
Jazz is his passion; however, Schäfer is still open-minded towards all kinds of music and likes to combine different styles in a creative crossover.
Schäfer openly admits that the bass is his favourite; but the cello, the guitar and the keys are also not unfamiliar to him.
