On 24 June 2022, the large, international symposium ALL IN will take place in Düsseldorf. Lectures, workshops and discussions will focus on how the theatre business can become more inclusive and how people with disabilities can have better access. The asphalt Festival is organising the evening programme of the symposium on the grounds of the Alte Farbwerke.

We warmly welcome the symposium participants and all asphalt visitors to the Cubit Festival Bar. With free admission under the open sky, concerts by the jazz trio open excess and the electro-pop duo Unfall! will take place before and after the screening of SCORES THAT SHAPED OUR FRIENDSHIP. The musical programme will be visualised reactively by ALL YOUR BASE, a tactile tool by the artist duo CYLVESTER for audiovisual media art in urban space that creates new, interactive approaches to music and art.

The concert by jazz trio open excess takes place at 7:30 pm. Pianist Lucca Keller, bassist Torben Schug and drummer Till Menzer share a fascination for music that arises spontaneously in the moment. The combo’s trademark is their exuberant and witty joy in playing. They play pieces by Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Roy Hargrove and their own compositions. For their concerts, open excess always invites different guest musicians.

Pianist and composer Lucca Keller is very well known in the NRW jazz scene and a stylish border crosser who likes to break away from harmonic guidelines, which he also proves on his current solo CD ‘mood of regrowing’. The list of his musical collaborations seems endless. Bassist Torben Schug studied jazz and popular music in Enschede, Amsterdam and Cologne. As bassist of the Ricciotti Ensemble in Amsterdam, he is committed to bringing music to places that otherwise often have no direct access to it – such as hospitals, prisons, asylum centres, kindergartens and public squares. He has toured the Netherlands, Turkey and Russia with the orchestra. Till Menzer is a busy drummer on the Cologne scene. He studied jazz and traditional oriental percussion at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Weimar and at the ITÜ-Istanbul. With his band projects – Horst Hansen Trio, FL!M, Naheli and Isaac Vacuum, among others – he tours throughout Europe.

The concert by Unfall! takes place at 9:30 pm. The electro-pop duo of Max Schweder and Martin Widyanata moves between reduced 4/4 beats and painful dissonances, turning them into deep-porn pop. Live electronic saxophone and hard modulated vocoders play just as much a role as classical sampling and looping.

Max Schweder is a musician, performer and multimedia artist who studied jazz saxophone and music production at the ArtEZ Conservatorium in Arnhem and at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln. In addition to his music, he realises reactive audiovisual art projects. At the KHM Cologne, Max Schweder completed a fellowship in 2020/2021 and is also an artistic researcher at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp (Belgium) and alumni of the Academy for Theatre and Digital Dortmund. Martin Widyanata studied media informatics at the FH-Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, media informatics at the HfM Karlsruhe and is currently doing his Master’s at the Institute for Popular Music (IfPOM) at the Folkwang University of the Arts. He is a DJ, producer of electronic music and co-producer of various artists from different genres. He also works as a composer, musician and performer for various theatre productions.

Funded by the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of NRW as part of the project Un-Label Music and Sound Department.
