For their publication "Hypertide over Kiribati", Lothar Ostermeier, Rudi Fischerlehner and Isambard Khroustaliov have been inspired by a low-lying atoll in the Pacific Ocean, which is threatened by rising sea levels and will soon be flooded by melting polar ice, and draw analogies to the virtual tide of holiday selfies in social media.
The trio embarks on a personal quest to revive the primitive innocence of musical discovery. They evoke a time when free jazz was exploring new possibilities for improvisation and the emerging technologies in music promised wild optimism. "Hypertide over Kiribati" is an affront to the dull thud of nothingness that threatens to trivialize, divide and silence that legacy, and attempts to seek and explore alternative realities for man-machine- symbiosis in music making, with the hope that it will inspire others to search and continue to search for new horizons.

Ohlmeier, Khroustaliov and Fischerlehner have been working together in different projects for about 10 years. "Hypertide Over Kiribati" is the first joint project as a trio and was released on Not Applicable London.

Jon Rose & Alvin Curran

"How two men whose combined age is around 150 manage to generate so much sheer energy is a minor miracle. For all his association with Musica Electronica Viva and other pioneering improv situations, Curran quite naturally settles into grooves, and Rose comes on like he is playing at a wedding. These are two musical flâneurs, observing society and recent history but not at the usual saunter. Associations race past...but basically „Café Grand Abyss“ a violin and piano album, an impeccably classical combo that never, ever, even in Beethoven's hands, shook off its café society associations. That's what makes this record great. It takes its pleasures seriously, and it makes its deeper musings seem as light as mousseline." (the Wire)

Alvin Curran is a former student of Elliott Carter and co-founded – with Frederic Rzewski and Richard Teitelbaum – the legendary Musica Elettronica Viva. A professor of music at Mills College, California, he now teaches privately in Rome and, as a fully paid up modern composer, he has a huge catalogue of works for all manner of ensembles, orchestras, self-playing pianos and cellphone apps; as well as radio works, dance and theatre pieces, and many solo performances under his belt.

Jon Rose started to play the violin at 7. Since then he has been a prolific composer and leading light in the world of improvisation, as well as inventing a huge menagerie of impossible acoustic and electronic string instruments. He has-produced prize-winning works for radio, large-scale festival extravaganzas, orchestral compositions and works of music-theatre and won numerous prizes.
