Exclusive audio taken from the upcoming album ‘View from Above’…
Christopher Colaço and Philipp Schaeper have known each other since moving from their Southern German hometowns to Berlin. Together they studied Jazz piano/drums at the Berlin University of Arts and immediately dived into the vibrant Jazz scene.
Playing and working together shaped their musical common sense. In 2013 Christopher and Philipp had the opportunity to score their first movie (Oh Boy! – A Coffee in Berlin) and formed an old school sounding Jazz band with friends. After winning the German Academy Award for best original score, they continued to develop their collaborative project as a duo writing and scoring music.
At the same time they are working on their own music and started collaborating with classical musicians from the Mahler Chamber Orchestra in 2018, which lead to their first debut album. The record ‘View From Above’ consists of 7 tracks, creating atmospheric soundscapes that mingle between film-music, classical minimalism, ambient and electronic music.
‘View From Above’ provides a portrait of Christopher and Philipp’s journey over the past few years and was recorded in Berlin at Bonello Studios. The renown mixing artist Francesco Donadello gave the record its final touch and it will be released on May 10th worldwide.
