Alchemia is very excited to host the ‚unprecedented phenomenon of the Ditch impro scene‘ (according to DraaiOmJeOren, Netherlands) march 6st.
Multi flutist Mark Alban Lotz (piccolo up to contrabass flutes and electronics) will perform one of his legendary Solo recitals and then meet three established modernists of the Polish scene : Rafal Mazur (bass), Marek Chołoniewski (electronics) and Leszek Wiśniowski (fl, fx). The meeting of this fearless improviser and composer with these three polish free spirits will produce music at the cutting edge. Each a match for each other and getting the best out of each other. Taking new directions a la moment. But without forgetting that yes: there is sexiness in contemporary music.

Subject of many international publications, prize-winner, nominated for the Edison and Beyond Magazine prize. Released 17 CD’s recorded a.o. in Senegal, Turkey, Cuba.

entitled.” (Neue Zeutschrift für Musik, Germany)
