Luise Volkmann: saxophone | Athina Kontou: bass | Maria Portugal: drums | Photography was the inspiration: placing a motif in the primary colours green, blue, and red over each other results in a colour photo – a process called autochrome. Saxophonist Luise Volkmann has now transferred this idea to music and called her band which was established for this Autochrom. In this way, musical images are created through the layering of tonal colours. Volkmann personally and her saxophone are responsible for blue – and to a certain degree also the melodic layer. The deeper red – a more harmonious structure – is provided by Volkmann’s favourite accompanist Athina Kontou on the bass whilst the green, rhythmic base is performed not by the nominal drummer Dominik Mahnig but, for the first time in Salzburg, the Brazilian drummer Mariá Portugal.
