When everything is simple …
Sometimes things work out quite easy: Knowing three gift ideas at the drop of a hat, train connections that are on time or a band text that can be written down in one go. It was similar when we five Berlin musicians thought in autumn 2022: Let’s make music together! We were amazed to discover that we, our music, our lifestyles and passions fit together.
What has emerged since then is music with the potential to make people happy: Beautiful & Wild. Familiar & disturbing. Complicated & Straightforward. Fine instrumentalists & virtuoso show-offs. Jazz. Although: is that still jazz? Or indie? Or both? Or simply a highly improvisational, undogmatic approach that fuses the most diverse musical styles such as jazz, dub, krautrock and funk. Sometimes danceable, sometimes melancholic, sometimes like the background music of a film or like a journey into the weightlessness of outer space?
ASK GONZALO is the further evolution of many ideas Florian and Peter released in the formation TRANSIT ELEKTRO during the 2010s.
And ASK GONZALO – why this name? We’ll be happy to explain that at a concert!
