INFOBOXGenre(s): Jazz/Improvised Music
From: Vienna, Austria
Martin Eberle (trumpet, horn), Benny Omerzell (organ, rhodes), Manu Mayr (electronics, bass) and Lukas König (drums, samples), the four heads of Kompost 3, are experts in bridging musical gaps. Representing a young generation that has defied and overcome old-school thinking patterns, the quartet treads a musical path that leads them to a very distinctive and unique overall sound. All of their pieces sound very innovative, imaginative, complex, varied and refreshingly non-dogmatic. The music is based on jazz elements, but also includes funk, bombastic art rock, sound art, trip hop, minimal techno and various forms of club music. A mix that is definitely not very common.
