KRK large group
KRK celebrates fifteen years together with this set created especially for Alternativa. The duo of New York natives Matthew Ostrowski and George Cremaschi will be joined Renata Raková (clarinet) and Michaela Turcerová (soprano saxophone) with special guest renowned Berlin percussionist Burkhard Beins.
KRK is focused on opening up undiscovered spaces in electro-acoustic music. The mix of Ostrowski's innovative live use of computer with Cremaschi's muscular amplified contrabass sound results in a vivid and unpredictable, non-formulaic and dramatic post-industrial landscape of inventive sonic manipulations. With this unique performance they will add an almost orchestral tone, with the horns bringing in written harmonies while the unconventional minimalist percussion of Beins ties everything together.
