Emißatett Ensemble

Elisabeth Coudoux – Cello
Matthias Muche – Trombone
Robert Landfermann – Doublebass
Philip Zoubek – prep. Piano
Etienne Nillesen – ext. Snare Drum

Welcome to the Emiszatett Universe

The cello, usually rather known as a slightly melancholic romantic one, screams, trembles and jumps into time.
Together with the piano as spaceship, the double bass as satellite, the trombone as nutrient and the snare drum as transducer, they disrupt the act of doing nothing.
Sounds, which allow you to stroll within yourself calmly rush past in order to later drop you off with an expanded perception.
Destination Multiversum.

Introducing the Crew

Elisabeth Coudoux

Elisabeth Coudoux – Cello, Composition

She is the captain of Emiszatett and guides them through space and time with her extraordinary playing techniques. At home in the outskirts of Improvisation, New Music and Jazz she takes her crew and all passengers to unknown places.

Etienne Nillesen

Etienne Nillesen – ext. Snare Drum

As the transducer, Nillesen converts the incoming signals of his crew members to keep the expeditions on a clear path and protects the ship from collapsing when pressure gets too high. His extraordinary approach to the snare drum gives the crew the chance to reach planets they couldn´t reach otherwise.

Matthias Muche

Matthias Muche – Trombone

Muche´s playing techniques of the trombone are out of this world and he provides the crew with the necessary nutrients for every Emiszatett journey. He feeds and gives explosive energy in small bursts as well as long-lasting vitality.

Robert Landfermann

Robert Landfermann – Doublebass

As the satellite, Landfermann, absorbs, reflects and sends the information coming from the universe. His mastery of the double bass is unique and his low frequencies help explore the final frontiers of space.

Philip Zoubek – prep. Piano, Synthesizer

With his prepared piano and extended playing techniques, crew member Zoubek provides them with the spaceship. His specialities are unexpected changes of direction which lead all participants into new adventures. His creative musical visions create the perfect ship for the crew.
