AUGUR ENSEMBLE consists of young and upcoming musicians from Switzerland, Norway and Sweden, focused on working as a collective with „open-source“ compositions and reworking the material with an improv-approach. NORCD is proud to present their 2nd album "Gästezimmer" It´s a unique recording filled with dynamic and forward-looking jazzmusic. It gives us the feeling of listening to something important in European Jazz right now. The old cliche "Music has no borders" should also be used.

AUGUR ENSEMBLE goes back to an old manner of making music: composing, arranging and improvising are considered as equal artistic gestures. The rich sound of the ensemble is an important anchor of the creative work and combines traditional and extended playing techniques. The compositions on the new album reach from instrumental songs with beautiful melodies via percussive layers, shimmering drone sounds, soft noise structures and playful rhytmical patterns. The word „chambermusic“ is mostly related to the dynamic spectrum. Augur Ensemble does not provide the big blast, but sensitive and versatile interaction between musicians and the room.

An AUGUR was a very prestigious and well paid governmental position in ancient Rome. His task was to predict the future by watching the birds fly or even cutting them up and do a forecast by vivisection. AUGUR ENSEMBLE doesn’t make use of birds or intestins, nor do the 5 augurians claim to foresee the future – they rather go for the other part of anticipation: Fearlessly facing the unknown by playing crooked melodies, twisted rhythms and unpredictable soundscapes.
