HOCHAPFEL

JÖRG  HOCHAPFEL,  born in 1976  close to Lake Constance, has spent many years ignoring the boundaries between jazz,  pop  and experimental music.  In 1996 he co-founded the still-reigning maestros of musical disasters - Hunger - who take a joyfully deconstructive approch to musical mistakes and ambiguities. In parallel, he collaborated for many years with Viennese experimental chansonnseur Willi  Landl. Since 2003  he has been the director of surreal jazz ensemble Capri  Di  Rote  Quintett, and currently also plays in the free jazz quartet Piho Hupo, with the Berlin-based, large-scale Andromeda  Mega  Express  Orchester  as well as afrofunk band  Onom Agemo  &  The  Disco  Jumpers.  In addition to his performance ventures, he also occasionally composes for children's circus, film and theatre.
