About k3…
Herbert Könighofer (sax, flutes)
Robert Kainar (drums, perc., electronics)
Klaus Kircher (double-bass, e-bass, guit.)
K3 have been referred to as the enfants terribles of the Austrian Jazz scene.
With their fusion of acoustically and electronically generated beats and sounds, the three unconventional artists walk on a tightrope between pop and free jazz.
Their genre-busting style oscillates between dub, trance, noise and drum and base and the three musicians boldly defy conventions and create a space for artistic freedom. In doing so, they play Jazz in its original meaning: crossing borders, pushing boundaries… far out! - keeping aloof from clichés and mainstream, leaving the beaten track of academic, inane high-speed Jazz.
Improvisation, spontaneity and humour are the main ingredients of the soup they cook up during their performances. Music emerges; it happens live - exclusively!
k3 reinvent themselves with every performance. They alienate, destroy and recreate - and never remain the same. Their music contradicts reproduction and thereby allows the audience to experience a unique feeling of becoming part of the development of k3.
Some may call it Jazz - we call it art, anyways!
k3 - corners and edges - as a matter of principle!

Recently the new stuff has been released by konnex records, Berlin, on both CD and Vinyl. popstarr (CD) and popstarr + (vinyl) offer a selection of recorded work-pieces and hypnotic live sounds of k3. The trend towards reproduction and rigidity in today’s society, arts, culture and politics is the central theme of the thriving tunes.
