Radical, freaked-out sound with hints of free-jazz, improv and avant-garde.

AK Musick was an improv collective assembled by Hans Kumpf to “make music in a very democratic way”. The five players had a classical education but they were also influenced by avant-garde composers like Helmut Lachenmann and Johannes Fritsch.

Their only album, “AK Musick”, was recorded in 1972 at the famous Bauer Studios in just three hours and engineered by Martin Wieland, who had previously worked with Keith Jarrett. Some of the instruments used were: clarinet, cello, oboe, organ, piano, darbuka, tam-tam, ektare, flute, zither…Includes the amazing “Impro-vision” which sounds like electronic music but using only natural instruments.
