Produced by: Hanam Quintet and Aut Records in May 2015


Second album for this wonderful improvisational quintet. The Hanamers this time recorded 11 pieces (some of them composing a suite) in the mysterious Piggotts venue. Here again we have the art of making improvised music with a deep reciprocal attention between the musicians expressed at its best.

Berlin based ensemble HANAM Quintet is Alison Blunt (violin), Anna Kaluza (alto sax), Manuel Miethe (soprano sax), Nikolai Meinhold (piano) and Horst Nonnenmacher (double bass).

Their collective CVs range from Sam Rivers to Alexander von Schlippenbach, Paul Bley to the London Improvisers Orchestra and Berlin Improvisers Orchestra, taking in cabaret, dance, film and theatre music along the way. HANAM’s music is what happens when five close friends play music together – deep listening and risky, playful challenges.
