About the album

Edgar Allen Poe only wrote one single novel, and this music might appear to many to be as puzzling as it and its main character "Gordon Pym" – however, only to those people who wear acoustic blinders and whose most important pieces of furniture are pigeonholes. The founder of Transit Room, the Swiss bassist Andreas Waelti, is also the bassist in the band, which has creating excitement in the best sense of the word for about one year: the "Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra" – its "head" there, Daniel Glatzel, also provides his service to the sextet here. His varied, expressive playing is heard to especially good advantage in the small group, and his partner on wind instruments, the Frenchman Pierre Borel, is just as good. Above all, the Norwegian Refseth – also a member of "Andromeda" – contributes important ingredients with his swinging vibraphone sound as well as does the guitarist Halscheidt from Essen, who knows precisely how you create ambience with sounds as a very busy musician for films and television. Connoisseurs of the "Next Generation" series know Tobias Backhaus as drummer in Andi Kissenbeck's Club Boogaloo, and he demonstrates his enormous range of talent in creating rhythmic artworks here. They all have the fact in common that they can create special worlds of sound in "Transit Room", which initially rattle our listening habits, but to which we can no longer (and no longer want to) return to afterward. Or as Tom Gsteiger wrote (in the Swiss "Bund"): "That which makes Transit Room into a band whose lively music you can hardly hear enough of is not primarily the solo flights of fancy, but instead the heightening of individual skills thanks to the variety of compositional and conceptual guidelines." Berlin has become a melting pot of European (top) musicians in the meantime for the complete scene, and the force of innovation is cooking on a high flame there. Transit Room is the icing on the cake ...
  • Transit Room is een jonge spannende band (sextet) uit Berlijn, waarin allerlei nationaliteiten deelnemen: Duitsland, Frankrijk, Noorwegen en Zwitserland
  • Opgericht door Zwitserse bassist Andreas Waelti
  • Muziek die de individuele kwaliteiten van deze Europese musici enorm versterkt
  • Er zo ontstaat een krachtige teamgeest waarin individualiteit wel belangrijk is maar ellenlange soli niet eerste vereiste zijn
  • De jazz traditie is als basis genomen om vervolgens uitstapjes te maken naar het heldere classicisme of het wilde post-modernisme
Ein verschworenes franz�sisch-deutsch-norwegisch-schweizerisches Gespann sorgt mit frischem Innovationsgeist, Fantasie und Tiefgang f�r Unruhe im Raum. Gem�tliches Zur�cklehnen ist da weder auf der B�hne noch beim Publikum angesagt - daf�r genie�en die sechs Musiker den Wandel als Konstante zu h�r- und f�hlbar, loten zu gerne das volle Spektrum und einen Schritt mehr der M�glichkeiten ihrer Instrumente aus; sie scheuen sich nie davor, jeglicher Monotonie den Kampf anzusagen.
