Kaspar Ewalds Exorbitantes Kabinett
The “EXORBITANTES KABINETT” is a Swiss big band founded in 2001 by Basle-based composer Kaspar Ewald. His compositions for the Band are all rooted in funk, moving between jazz, film music, drum ‘n’ bass, minimal music and new music. Yet, they always remain fully committed to the “holy groove”. The “EXORBITANTES KABINETT” consists of 15 first-class musicians including a singer, who have either emerged from the Swiss jazz scene or have a classical background. Despite their diverse origins, the personalities in the band all share a wide sphere of interests ranging from African-American music to contemporary sounds as well as the desire to further expand on the latest developments in music. At the beginning of each year, the Band begins to elaborate on a repertoire made up of Kaspar Ewald’s pieces, which will then be performed live at various festivals and concerts throughout the year.
