Dock in Absolute booked at FIRA B! (Palma de Majorca, Spain)
Kultur | lx and the Institut d’Estudis Balearics shaped an exchange programme between the showcase festivals FIRA B! for the Balearic Islands and Shuffle on the Luxembourgish side. Through this exchange, jazz artists from both territories get the opportunity to perform in those showcase festivals attended by countless professionals, and therefore to develop their presence in new territories.
On September 29th, Dock in Absolute will perform and present their project at Teatre Xesc Forteza, Palma de Majorca, in the framework of FIRA B!. Shuffle, organised by neimënster in partnership with Kultur | lx and taking place on November 25th and 26th, will welcome an artist from the Balearic Islands.
About Dock in Absolute
Dock in Absolute is a stellar trio from Luxembourg composed of Jean-Philippe Koch on piano, David Kintziger on bass and Victor Kraus on drums, young musicians who breathed new life into the music scene. With a shared love of music, they combine different styles of progressive jazz, classical and rock, playing the pianist’s own compositions and co-created their unique jazz style in 2012. Its music is sparkling, varying, forceful, pressing, rich in twists and turns in mood. An endless variety of melodic cells, often with a hypnotic pattern, alternating against a flamboyant, bright sonic background with unfaltering dynamics, never a half-way approach from this trio.
Dock in Absolute was created by its pianist in 2012 and has been touring in the past years playing at many international festivals around the world. The band released its first album in 2017 under the Label CAM JAZZ and the second one in 2019. A third one is planned for the end of 2022. Due to its strong international presence, the group was named ‘Export artist of the year’ by music:LX in 2017 and 2019. The trio has also been named N.1 Discovery Artist by the magazine Jazznews and its latest album belongs to the JAZZit 100 Greatest Jazz Albums of the year 2019.
