Frustice (DE)

Frustice (DE)

are Jan Klare on bass saxophone and Alex Schwers on drums. Frustice means substrate and reduction. Frustration, justice and ICE. Beat, melody, harmony – everything comes condensed and tight.

The two form an unusual rhythm team - a protoband. We will see whether one can speak of "Sly & Robbie" of the Ruhr area. Alex Schwers is a part of German Punk history, Jan Klare already is known from last year as conductor of The Dorf.

Jan Klare has been a saxophonist, bandleader and composer since the mid 80's and has not missed much. His biography contains concerts in many countries, dozens of CD / radio / TV productions and cooperations with well-known colleagues. He sees his work as "sociological field research" about listening habits, listener’s expectations and their manipulation.

Various awards prove evidence of his quality - he has left his mark during the past ten years as founder of the orchestra »The Dorf«. The list of his works conttains a masterclass at the New England Conservatory in Boston, the football opery "Duell D / NL 74", the chamber opera “Ich war die Krawatte von Prinz Claus” (I was Prince Claus's necktie), compositions for "New Music" ensembles and the WDR BigBand, a piece for two wind orchestras, gospel choir, rock band, church bells & pyrotechnics and much more.
