Gerhard Gschlößl grew up in Germany, studied trombone and composition in Würzburg and has lived in Berlin since 2004. The trombone & stuba player belongs to a new scene, which has been successfully freed from the traditional labels of jazz and moved in a wide field of improvised music. Ulrich Steinmetzger about Gerhard Gschlößl: Very agile, muscular and close to the current base the trombonist has developed his personal style. Nothing here is cosmetically polished or coated ambitious. His music is credible because it comes with corners and edges, because it does not hide the dirt that is part of life. This is neither strict mainstream nor pure avant-garde. You can hear the whence and suspect a where.Gerhard about music:
I like to work with improvisation and composition using musical tools such as the parameters of melody, rhythm, tone and dynamics. One of my goals is to be able to move around freely within and outside prescribed forms and meters and to act independently of clichés or stylistic constraints.
