Philipp Gropper (tenor sax, composition), Elias Stemeseder (piano, synthesizer), Andreas Lang (bass), Oliver Steidle (drums)
Ultimately, Philm use Gropper’s themes as a way of goading the jazz language to its limits. All four band members are highly sensitised, lashed to a convoluted framework, but frequently escaping into the unpredictable dark corners of improvisation.
