Schnellertollermeier (STM) Plays at OCT-LOFT Jazz Festival
The highly in-demand trio Schnellertollermeier (STM) enthralled audiences at Jarasum International Jazz Festival in Korea and clubs in China last October. Exactly one year later, they will be back in the Far East again playing concerts in China and Japan. The internationally renowned OCT-LOFT Jazz festival in Shenzhen that took place since 2011, is at the center of this tour.
STM is an active part of a dynamic contemporary European music scene, frequenting festivals in Switzerland such as Festival de la Cite, Winterthur Music Festival Week, and One Of A Million Festival.
STM plays with an original musical identity and without compromises. Ranging from modern composition, minimal music and improv to brute rock music, their style defies genre boundaries with an instrumental power that lets heartbeat the head easily. The idea of a band that sounds like one organism can be perceived in unified energy – music containing as much explosive force as beauty and depth.
Their third album “X” received enthusiastic critics from all over the world and made it into the list of the 12 best albums of 2015 in US-Wall Street Journal among Björk, Kendrick Lamar, Courtney Barnett and Battles. Their fourth album “RIGHTS” is released in 2017 also via Cuneiform Records.
