TALLINN - Hardly anything could be further away from the traditional ”theme - solos - theme” jazz structure than Nik Bärtsch’s Mobile.
Born in Zurich in 1971, Bärtsch took piano and percussion lessonsearly onto continuehis studies at the city’s Music University. At thesame time he played “everything from fusion to free funk and all kinds of extroverted jazz”. The lure of the latter diminished, when Nik got into John Cage’s and Morton Feldman’s musical ideas.
That’s why Mobile knits a slowly developing and quite meditational polyrhythmic mat, the charge of which can reach rather dramatic heights.
