GRAUSAME TÖCHTER – Zyklus
Art can be neither broad nor artificial – it has to be authentic, real and unrestrained. Grausame Töchter exists because we had to unload our bursting emotions. Like the animals follow their instincts, we are driven into a wild rush that we celebrate hedonistically , away from band stereotypes. Desire for sadomasochism, nightmare and surrealism; we lust after dance and seduction; after performances, concerts and videos. We want to entice you to reveal your dark secrets and make you accept them. Kiss the devil inside you.

ACK VAN ROOYEN – 90
Play me a note and I’ll tell you who you are. It is often the individual, the own sound of an instrumentalist that makes him unmistakable – and not only in blindfold tests, in which musicians are played recordings and asked to recognize titles and artists according to the motto “Listen, who’s playing?” they are supposed to recognize the title and artist. Ack von Rooyen also makes it easy for the normal jazz listener. His sound is so unmistakable that it only takes a few seconds, a few notes, to identify him.
