CHRISTOPH PEPE AUER
SONGS I LIKE

Christoph Pepe Auer: clarinets & saxophones, electronics
Mike Tiefenbacher: piano, bass synth
Marie Spaemann: violoncello, vocals
Gregor Hilbe: drums, electronics

After 7 years of intensively playing gigs national and international Christoph Pepe Auer (saxophone and clarinet player, founder of Session Work Records) finally has produced a CD of his own music again: ‚Songs I Like’ presents some carefully chosen originals, and arrangements of his ‚musical youth memories’ which are put in a total new context. Sampled Sounds of smallest details of the Bass Clarinet are the base of the electronically programmed beats, which are co-produced by drummer Gregor Hilbe. The sound scape and ambience come from the other instruments like hurdy gurdy, accordion and cello – a charming combination of Jazz, World Music and Electronic Music.

The CD and LP ‘Songs I Like’ shows a highly authentic and personal insight of the playful work of Christoph Pepe Auer.

„... the astonished audience experience how Christoph Pepe Auer takes the role of the drums just with one clarinet.“ (Teleschau Germany/translated)
