Sarah Buechi - Contradiction of Happiness (teaser video)

Our new album will be released on Intakt Records in February 2018.
I finally made a dream of mine come true and added three string players to our Swiss Jazzquartett.
As I am playing the violin myself since the age of five, this was an important step to me as a composer.
Here our teaser video for a first impression.

review ANIMATA CD (FAZ, 14th of March 2016)

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, 14. März 2016

ANIMATA
Christoph Haberer - drums, electronics
Sarah Buechi - lyrics, voice


Und das noch

I can\'t find any prototype for this CD, no similar way of connecting the vocal and instrumental concepts of sound: \'Animata\' (Jazzhaus Musik).
It is the result of the collaboration of the young Swiss vocalist Sarah Buechi with her English lyrics and the widely experienced percussionist Christoph Haberer who seems to travel between ethnological research, machined astetics and electronical sound fantasies.
Buechi has proven herself to have a versatile way of singing. She possesses an almost girly and beautiful cantilena, which she can colour in marvelous ways or fuse with metal but from which she can distance herself as well with whispering passages, speech bubbles, yodel like colours and dramatic outbreaks.
The lyrics are all written by her. One is encouraged to read along with them at least once. They deal with wondrous love dreams, hunger for wisdom, love, joy, are cryptic, ordinary, philosophical, surreal, metaphysical.
While consuming the total work of art the lyrics play a minor role or even no role at all during the oustanding musical events and their totally different course on this journey. As for example in one piece where both knock about with sensefree scats. (u.o. FAZ, 14th of March 2016)

WDR3 Jazzfest Dortmund, Wiresongs

'...the two most appealing aspects of the project were the particular way Sarah Buechi asserted simple melodic hooks and made them stick - Meant Forever in particular came across as a very strong song indeed - and the Jimmy Guiffre chalumeau tones of Klein's Bb clarinet and alto clarinet playing...Among the band members, both guitarist Frank Wigold, who had also composed one of the songs, and bassist Matthias Nowak, who underpinned the many mood transitions very effectively, left a strong impression.

Jazz N' More Switzerland, Cd review Flying Letters

SARAH BUECHI
Flying Letters

Sarah Buechi (voc), Stefan Aeby (p), André Pousaz (b), Lionel Friedli (dr)
Intakt 229
(5 stars)

Sarah Buechi ist eine äusserst eigenständige Künstlerin. Ihre facetten- und farbenreiche Stimme und ihre Songs entziehen sich der Kategorisierung. Sie ist eine Vokalistin, die ihr Instrument auf vielfältigste Weise einsetzt und ihren persönlichen, unverwechselbaren Ausdruck findet. Wir begegnen hier nicht herkömmlichem Jazzgesang und Standards, sondern einer nach allen Seiten offenen und doch strukturierten Musik. Buechi geht konsequent und bewusst ihren Weg und erschliesst mit ihren Kompositionen und unpathetischen Texten Neuland. Sie studierte bei Lauren Newton und Susanne Abbühl, hat sich mit Steve Coleman auseinandergesetzt, war eineinhalb Jahre in Indien und reiste nach Ghana. All ihre Erfahrungen bilden das Fundament ihrer feinen Musik, ihrer klangvollen Forschungsarbeit. Beeindruckend, wie sie nuancenreich zwischen Brust- und Kopfstimme changiert, langgezogene, überlagerte Sequenzen, schnelle Rhythmen, Lautes, Gehauchtes, Zerbrechliches, Text und Melodie verbin det und die einzelnen Stimmen des Quartetts zur gemeinsamen Sprache verschmelzen lässt. Dazu hat sie absolut passende Partner: Stefan Aeby, André Pousaz und Lionel Friedli spielen auf technisch hohem Niveau und äusserst sensibel, nehmen Buechis Geschichten auf und bringen sie wunderbar zum Klingen.
