Oltrarno Raw presents Xenofox (Olaf Rupp and Rudi Fischerlehner) & Joke Lanz. Thousands connections might appear into your brain; re-calling past, present and future experiences of music. This is a unique collaboration between three free form s masters. Olaf Rupp: the organic flow of his music is guided neither by chance nor by dominant, wilful decisions. In his music he explores how more or less dense murmurations of notes can be perceived as one agglomerated sound in motion. Olaf Rupp performed with extraordinary musicians such as Paul Lovens, Tristan Honsinger, Peter Br tzmann, Butch Morris, Lol Coxhill, John Zorn und Michael Wertm ller. Rudi Fischerlehner plays drums in various musical projects that fall between improvised and experimental music, jazz and post-rock; such as Gorilla Mask, 15 8 SLUM, RMF and La Tourette. His style floats among explosions into destructive bubbles, punkish feelings and delicate precision. A balance between ferocity and finesse. Joke Lanz is working at the border zone, where performance and body art meet Improvisation and Noise. His life experiences span between garbageman work till the nomination for the Swiss Music Prize 2015. Since 1985 he is involved with a broad variety of musical projects, such as: Jaywalker, Sudden Infant, Schimpfluch-Gruppe, Psychic Rally, Vehikel & Gef ss, Catholic Boys in Heavy Leather, WAL, and Tell. Available in CD and digital. Credits: Recorded at A L'Arme Festival on August 5th, 2017 at Radialsystem Berlin. Recorded by Olaf Rupp. Mixed by Rudi Fischerlehner and Stefano Meucci.
