Rudi Fischerlehner Solo

Rudi Fischerlehner´s solo music describes a musical and emotional landscape of polyrhythmic structures, abstract sound collages and aggressive drum patterns. A musical world inspired by influences from Haitian and Japanese music, musique concrète, free jazz, punk and new music. Non-musical interests strongly color the picture, exemplified by the films of Maya Deren, who, through her approach to editing and form, creates moods and in-between worlds, which are also striven for here in terms of sound.

Rudi released two solo albums, Spectral Nichts and 15 8 Slum, which were featured on radio stations as Ö1, SWR and BBC.
Recent solo concerts: REM-Festival at Schwankhalle Bremen, Solo Impro Festival Berlin, Echoraum Vienna, Hundred Year Gallery London and many more.

"Complex, challenging but totally affecting."
The state51 Conspiracy

"... one of the most interesting drummers in the German-speaking area at the moment."
Martin Schray, Freejazzblog

"Tempo-varying, intricate sound events, arranged poinitillistically and spatially, rhythmic overlays of varying density and complexity, prismatic breaks in timbre."

"Wondrous, great and sensitive solo work."
Marlene Schnedl, Radio Ö1, Zeit-Ton

"Each of the six pieces is a carefully constructed composition with a specific athmospere and dramaturgy."
Robert Ratajczak, Longplay

"Bei 'Intuition Repeat' vereint er zwei für sein Tun wesentliche Stichworte und tischt dazu seinen Formenreichtum auf, wischend und wischelnd, ratschend, kratzend, knisternd."
Rigobert Dittmann, Bad Alchemy
