new album out now
„Blink 6“ is the latest project by Marcus Klossek, the Berlin-based composer and guitarist.
For the past 10 years he has been performing and recording 5 albums with his tried-and-tested Electric Trio, now he has added a blowing section with 3 of his favorite musicians, making this unique sextet his largest project to date.
After an extensive writing period, Marcus Klossek was ready to introduce his new material, and the ensemble captured 8 compositions in the studio:
The result was absolutely pleasing to the band and they can’t wait to share it with their fans!
This multi-dimensional unity filters Klossek’s compositional explorations of melody, harmony and rhythm through the lens of six master improvisers, arranged in a way that allows the music to sound differently every time.
The new album Blink 6 is marking Klossek’s 10th album as a bandleader and his third for Double Moon/Challenge Records International.
