Aseo and The Kaiju Project

'The Kaiju Project' is a Japanese-inspired jazz group formed by Japanese-Austrian pianist Aseo Friesacher. Their original idea was to bring old folk songs into a new modern context, but with their compositions, this group has found their own musical direction: a perfect mix of traditional Japanese music and meditative-creative jazz. Some well-known soundtracks from the Ghibli films that Aseo has arranged for the band are also in their repertoire.

Unique fusion

The band leader has long had the vision to create this unique fusion of traditional Japanese music and jazz and thus bring the Eastern and Western worlds together. In fact, the meaning lies in his name A-se-o, “���為欧“: a life for Asia and Europe.

Oene van Geel (viola) and River Adomeit (double bass) open the evening with the debut of their duo. They present untold stories, reflecting on the present, the past and the twilight zone in between. Expressionism through two resonating wooden sound boxes.
