Since the outstanding multiinstrumentalists WERNER PUNTIGAM (A) trombone & conch shell, and RABITO ARIMOTO (J) trumpet & bass clarinet, started their congenial duo collaboration in Osaka (J) in 2017, they continued with several highlighting concert tours in Japan, Austria and Taiwan so far. With their freely improvised chamber music they're creating thrilling abstract dialogues and complex soundscapes with an extremely wide range of sounds and dynamics by exploring all known and unknown sound options on their horns in a pure acoustic way. An intimate, surprising and extraordinary soulful and sensual experience for the dainty ears of attentive listeners that is also served via the highly inspired studio recordings that has been released on the duo's first album, entitled "kokyū [breathing]" (ATS Records CD-0898), a topic that became even more important with the experiences of contemporary issues in several respects.

 

Sometimes they're extending the duo line-up with special guests, e.g. with the fabulous Japanese vocal artist Koichi Makigami at the prestigious 'Jazz Art Sengawa 2018' festival in Tokyo, where they earned more enthusiastic feedbacks on their impassioned live performance by the audience as well as by concert/festival promoters and fellow musicians.

 

And in November 2018 the duo started a special concert series in churches in Austria under the title THE SOUND OF ODEM that is supposed to be continued at other sacred spaces worldwide as well. These live performances - sometimes extended to trio with special guests of various disciplines (music, contemporary dance, live paintings or other visual arts) - convey associations of God's breath of life as well as getting inspired by Saint Francis of Assisi's 'Canticle of Brother Sun'.
