Bio

Ich sah den Saxophonisten aus der Muppet-Show als ich sieben war. Von da an wollte ich Saxophon spielen. Dies tue ich immer noch. 

Was geschah dann? Nur ganz kurz - Details entnehmen Sie bitte meinem Lebenslauf im Download-Bereich: Ich studierte Saxophon. Zuerst in Mainz (Steffen Weber, Thomas Bachmann), dann in Berlin (Prof. Peter Weniger) und in New York City (Tony Moreno, Chris Potter). In meiner Musik beschäftige ich mich mit Mikrotonalität. Schauen Sie sich doch für weitere Informationen mein Informationsvideo "What I do" oder meine Demonstration von 128 Tönen pro Oktave auf dem Altsaxophon an. Mein Hauptprojekt ist meine Band "Besaxung". Ich komponiere meine eigene Musik und realisiere sie mit unterschiedlichen Musikern. Auf meiner neuen CD, welche 2017 auf RareNoise-Records erscheinen wird, sind Jack DeJohnette, David Fiuczynski, Matthew Garrison und Giorgi Mikadze in meiner Band. Als Sideman trete ich mit unterschiedlichen Bands und Musikern im In- und Ausland auf.

Quotes

About Philipp Gerschlauer

"Philipp Gerschlauer has done incredible research and organized the many possibilities for pitch and color alternate fingerings for the saxophone. The possibilities for expanding the saxophone's coloristic and expressive nuances are massive." (Dave Liebman

 

About "Mikrojazz: Neue Expressionistische Musik" (RareNoise Records)

"… a haunting and benchmark setting masterpiece which will in 40, 60, 100 years still be seen as revolutionary and astonishing - just as fresh as listening to Charlie Parker's recordings in 1945."

Matthias Entreß (independent journalist, DeutschlandRadio Kultur, DLF, WDR, HR)

 

"Mikrojazz: Neue Expressionistische Musik" took microtonal music to new places, and there’s never a dull moment. 

Somethingelse Reviews

 

"Gerschlauer succeeds to turn over an absolute new leaf of Jazz/Rock. What more could one want? Chapeau!"

(Wolf Kampmann, author Reclam's jazz lexicon)

 

"The quintet doesn't try to tear down harmonic borders but it tries to conquer new harmonic virgin soil."

Süddeutsche Zeitung

 

"What a mind-blowing album this is! ...it’s your chance to be some of the first ones on board."

Dave Tremblay, heavyblogishheavy.com

 

“This is music that is redolent of often ecstatic earthy celebration; a coming together of the natural and the supernatural worlds. It is thrillingly sensuous music of bright acoustic (electric and electronic) colours and resonant fades.” Raul Da Gama Rose, Jazzdagama

 

“Lyrical ... uncanny ... oddly beautiful ... sounds like The Grateful 

Dead on varispeed” 

THE WIRE – STEWART SMITH

 

"…provocative and inviting"
