Moritz von Oswald Trio announce new album ‘Dissent’

The Moritz von Oswald Trio have announced their new album ‘Dissent’ coming August 6 on Modern Recordings, their first album in almost five years.

Von Oswald has teamed up with Detroit’s Laurel Halo and Heinrich Köbberling for the new iteration of the trio - with the album moving between dance music, jazz, noise, and techno.

The album was recorded during November and December 2020 in Berlin, forming from a number of edited down, long-form jams. The experimental sound world is explored across the album’s duration, with free drums being complimented by more dark, electronic instrumentation.

It follows 2015’s ‘Sounding Lines’ with a more explorative and experimental effort - still grounded within its jazz sensibilities.

Moritz von Oswald is known for his contributions to the electronic music tradition - and the Moritz von Oswald trio focuses on branching out into more improvisational music. Von Oswald was also instrumental to the initiation of the Berlin-Detroit connection through a number of early 90s collaborations - with artists such as Juan Atkins and Jeff Mills.
