a little bit of jazz - a little bit of loops
we just returned from the macau international jazz & blues competition 2013, where we performed including mark fitzgibbon, mc amine and our new erhu player 吕菁 and came out third! we are totally thrilled :)
chekov combines electronic music with jazz improvisation: spheric
sound collages of samples, loops, and beats form the basis for the
improvisation of the live band. the electronic ingredients are triggered
live via midi floorboard from a laptop, so that everything happening
on stage in fact is live!

in contrast to solely electronic music, the iterative loops and samples merge with the band into a dynamic and vital ensemble. the combination of these stylistic means - repetitive electronic loops and jazz improvisation - makes the sound of the band.
chekov takes you on a sonic space trip with sol 8, to ambient & groovin' sound-galaxies you have never imagined to be able to experience
