Jonas Gerigk

DOUBLE BASS - COMPOSER / PERFORMER

ABOUT

Jonas Gerigk is a double bass player who is active as a composer/performer in the fields of improvised music.
In addition, he collaborates in projects of contemporary composers and is involved in the realization of their works.
Currently he lives and works in Cologne and Pohrsdorf (Tharandt).

After his bachelor studies at the HfM Dresden and NMH Oslo he studied in the master program at the HfMT Köln.

A main focus of his work deals with the term Explorative Music. He is doing intensive research on the expansion of the sound spectrum of the acoustic double bass. With a physical as well as technical approach and the use of objects he explores the variety of timbres of his instrument.
His solo album Sound Plantings (IMPAKT Records) is a snapshot of this work in the field of individualized vocabulary through playing techniques. 

Jonas is a member of numerous ensembles, works on long-term band projects and collaborates regularly with dancers and painters in interdisciplinary projects.

In his band projects he works with friends on Improvised Music with its different gradients of pre-organized structures and so called „free“ music.
The Trio Vließ is a Working Band which uses concepts and playing approaches to create a common dynamic flow.
The Ensemble EXOTHERM works without agreements, prepared mindsets or rehearsals.
The music of the Quartett OKOTON is based on his own written material and compositions including individualized vocabulary of the four individuals.

He was part of the team organizing the radio shows HEIMklang (Dresden) and SnapShot (Cologne), in which free improvisations of changing groups were broadcasted live in the studio. Between October 2020 and February 2021 he organized the concert series RAUMKLANG – Explorative Music at the Atelier KunstRaum Dorissa Lem in Cologne. 
In 2023 he organized 6 residences plus concerts at the venue saxstall in Pohrsdorf. It was called FREIER FREITAG.

He is an active member of the collective IMPAKT – Improvisation und aktuelle Musik Köln.
