Jazzaffine songs and grooves; [Duo]
b. good series stands for duo cooperations between Lukas Schiemer aka Barry Good and accomplished drummers. The project series combines modern jazz with popular groove music.
Starting from their minimalistic acoustic setup, drums and saxophone, the musicians set foot on new terrain. Voice, synths, samples and loops are captured, generated and modified via masterkeyboard, sample pad and computer. Playing with heavy contrasts stimulates particularly mind and intellect of listeners when elements as improvisation and poetry slam melt into conventional song structures and groove. The use of extended electronics makes it possible to increase the intimacy of the duo-setup to a seemingly far bigger ensemble - without losing its charm of authenticity and live-ness.
