This is the third edition of Lärmschutz' ongoing Tafelmusik series. Tafelmusik is a term used since the mid-16th century for music played at feasts and banquets, often employing basso continuo. We took these bass lines, designed as a startpoint of bass improvisation in the classical piece, and reshaped it into wholy new free music.

For every song, a basso continuo barok piece is the starting point, propelling the rest of the free improvisation onwards. All pieces were played once and once only, no retries or rehearsals. What you hear is the raw energy present on this evening in march 2017.
