Artifier expands the creative horizons of music management, connecting the dots between genres and styles. We offer individually tailored support systems and consultation for artists and event creators, who are striving for a place in the new musical cosmos that doesn’t care for separation between the worlds of Classical, Pop, Electronical and Jazz music.
Kai Schumacher delights in pushing the boundaries between classical and popular music while avoiding the wellworn clichés “Crossover.” Boasting an impressive pedigree, he has been constantly experimenting and combining seemingly incompatible elements with surprising results. His solo performances are acts of pure musical – and stylistic – alchemy, serving up heady mixes of Dadaism and Dancefloor, Avantgarde and Pop culture – sometimes all at once! When not engaged in genre-defying pursuits, Kai Schumacher‘s repertoire focuses on American piano music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
His upcoming album „Rausch” (October 2019, Neue Meister) is the first album exclusively to feature his own compositions. Schumacher abstains from using overdubs; in fact, no electronics are used at all. Instead, he employs his own form of “prepared piano”, manipulating the instrument’s mechanism and strings to produce an unusual array of sounds.

“Like a sequined razor blade — the voice cuts through the weft of dark sound.”

“There is something about the darkness of the music and the lightness of her voice and delivery that is undeniably sultry and sexy – like a siren from another plain. Colour me impressed and wanting more. Excellent stuff!”
Small Friendly Giant – The Band surrounding the swedish-german Singer/Composer ANNA LUCA combines the simplicity of scandinavian folk music with the liberty of modern Jazz. In her lyrics and compositions Anna Luca is looking for freedom as well as her own roots, creating inner images yet letting the listener have his own associations at the same time.
Lyric poetry meets rhythmics – Pianist Roman Babik, who is a winner of the Montreux Jazz Competition, and Anna Luca have been friends and collaborators since they met at musical college in Arnheim. Bass player Sebastian Räther has worked with Angelika Niescier and Nils Wogram; with his very special sound and expressive playing he is one of the foundations of the quartet. Last but not not least Yonga Sun on drums is a soundfreak, who knows how to give room to fragile melodies and give a foundation with calm depths.
On the lookout for roots and a home the SMALL FRIENDLY GIANT travels with his four companions – a very commited community. Sounding delicate and playful at one moment, expressive and intense at the next, they always know how to stay grounded.
