The two Berlin musicians play their own compositions from the current duo album "Alarm auf der Zeitwacht". Composer and double bassist Jaspar Libuda and composer and accordionist Daniel Moheit enter into a surprising dialogue in their chamber music. Transparent, filigree threads of sound alternate with dense, orchestral passages.

Free, pulsating motifs develop into rhythmic escapades. Their music evolves from silence to sonority, from improvisation to arrangement. Together, the two Berlin musicians form the soundtrack to an imaginary film with luminous and dark themes. They play their own compositions from the current duo album "Alarm auf der Zeitwacht".

Jaspar Libuda plays on a five-string double bass with a high C string, specially built and cut for him in Germany. Daniel Moheit plays on a chromatic button accordion built in Italy.

Jaspar Libuda makes the mighty stringed instrument sing. Plucked and bowed, from the lowest to the highest notes, he creates timbres reminiscent of cello, Arabic lute or electric guitar. In Daniel Moheit's playing, the accordion becomes a voice, a supporting bass, a bandoneon and a percussion instrument. Transparent, filigree threads of sound alternate with dense, orchestral passages. Free, pulsating motifs develop into rhythmic escapades. Pictorial transitions, flowing lines and dramatic contrasts make the chamber music of Jaspar Libuda and Daniel Moheit an exciting form of sonic stories.

The first album "Alarm auf der Zeitwacht" is released on the Berlin label cinematic bass music. After Jaspar Libuda devoted himself in recent years mainly to his double bass solo project and commissioned compositions, the two musicians are currently working on your second album, a four-movement composition by Jaspar Libuda, which the duo presented live for the first time in summer 2019. The completion of the new album is scheduled for 2023.
