BIOGRAPHY

Lukas König’s solo project Kœnig  has turned away from classical jazz structures to concentrate more on rap, bass synthesizers, noise and choirs. His interest in working with drums and synthesizers and the genre mix of pop, hip hop, Gamelan and Gnawa has given him yet another chance to prove that his reputation for the fusion of different music styles and acoustic variety is well deserved. Kœnig already supported Bilderbuch on their “Schick Schock”-tour in 2015.

Lukas König is also a member of the Jazzwerkstatt collective Kompost 3 and the supertroup 5K HD. Lukas König, who debuted as a composer with the renowned Klangforum Wien in 2018, is artist in residence at the International Jazzfestival Saalfelden 2019.
