Alfred Vogel brings new sounds to Bezau
Bezau or New York? Mountains or skyscrapers? Meadows full of hay or basement bars? Alfred Vogel’s music is not tied to place and certainly not to clichés. The drummer and producer brings new sounds to Bezau and to us in Hotel Post with his diverse engagements.
Bezau - metropolis of music
Alfred Vogel is at home in Bezau and in the world of avant-garde jazz. Diligent and diverse, he drives musical culture forward in the Bregenz Forest as a drummer, producer and concert organiser.
Seven years ago, he brought new sounds to the Bezau with the summer concert series “Bezau Beatz“. In the meantime, this how grown into the all-year Bezau concert series, consisting of “Jazz-Spätzle”, “Wachen Sinne” and “Adventsvierklang” in Hotel Post Bezau. The shared goal: the enjoyment of musical delicacies - outside of conventions.
A passionate composer
Whether it is during summer in Bezau (Wälderbähnle Remise), on a May Seed in the middle of an Alpine panorama or around the fireplace of Hotel Post with us: Alfred Vogel’s musical engagement takes one far off the beaten path. He has dedicated himself completely to music since the age of nine. The trained business instructor has played in various pop, rock and jazz groups as a drummer and percussionist for more than 15 years and has led his independent label boomslang records since 2004. He produces unusual projects with international musicians in Bezau.
Alfred Vogel is currently surprising critics as well as listeners with his 5-CD series “Vogelperspektive”. In addition, Alfred Vogel & die Glorreichen Sieben (as heard on Vogelperspektive vol. 2) were invited to the concert series of the BMW Jazz Award 2013 where the focus was on percussionists.
