I Never Metaguitar 6

My piece „Sinking Ship“ is part of Elliott Sharp presents: I Never Metaguitar 6 - album out now on Klanggalerie

Liner notes: 
"In these sick times, there must be a 6th volume of this on-going compilation covering "the parallel realities of contemporary guitarism". Our latest collection runs from A to Z with guitar pieces reflecting the sheer inventiveness and fabulous sonic visions inspired by this instrument of myriad manifestations. The cast of characters ranges from the "legendary" to the "obscure" but all are wonderfully committed players with one foot in the future and one in the past, a formula that puts one’s ass directly in THE NOW." E# - NYC.

First reviews for Saadet Türköz & Beat Keller: "We Are Strong"

"Turkish singer Saadet Türköz collaborates with Swiss guitarist Beat Keller on We Are Strong – a pared-back selection of yearning folk music and textural jazz arrangements exploring Türköz’s Uyghur roots."The Guardian 

"Saadet and Keller are extremely inventive throughout the album, and it is an excellent example of improvised music that draws on aspects of traditional sounds as well as free improvisation. It’s a heady mix." - London Jazz News 

Specially featured artist "New and notable" on Bandcamp

New release "und ja, and yes," out on zOaR records

"With UND JA, AND YES, Messrs. Puntigam, Keller and Wilbertz present a virtuosic music that operates across varied moods while traversing barriers of genre and style. This is accomplished not with a flaming sword but with sly humor and pointed technique. These pieces are miniatures and in their own way pay tribute to the master of the miniature, Anton Webern, who distilled primal energy into compact arcs of crystalline sonic purity. In this album, the balance between improvised spontaneity and structural integrity is achieved with the manifestation of pithy statements that never wear out their welcome but instead leave a lasting impression in the ear in much the same way that a powerful flash will imprint upon your visual cortex."

Recorded in November 2019 in Linz, Austria. Released on November 13 2020. 
Werner Puntigam: trombone & conch shell, Beat Keller: feedbacker electric guitar, Georg Wilbertz: drums & percussion
