TM have been doing some very special collaborations and projects since our journey started in 2008. Voilá – here they are: some of them burried in the past, waiting to be discovered again, others still continuing and blossoming.

The Minigrooves

2017

Ever since Layerlab, Graz offered us to reproduce ourselves as 3D figures, the Minigrooves are basically joining us everywhere we’re going. They also will be hosting our upcoming crowdfunding video as well as they were the center piece of the “I Got Time“ video from our recent album. Check them out below!

The Taiwan Tours

2014 – 2017

4 years – 4 tours. The first tour in 2014 was featured by the „Recorder Various“ project, followed by a club tour in 2015 with Tali Rubinstein and the Interestring String Quartett. In 2016 we performed in front of 10.000 people at the Taichung Jazz Festival. In 2017 the Taipei Jazz Festival marked the end of our last trip to Asia so far. Join us on tour by checking out the Media section!

With Studio Percussion

2013

In addition to the jazz and pop genres, TM’s music always uses some minimal music elements. Over the years, our own captain Wolfgang Radl has been focusing on the work of Steve Reich. It led the band to Studio Percussion, a well-known Austrian mallet ensemble and an unforgettable live performance at the famous Orpheum in Graz. Check it out!

Spe Salvi

With Ulli Pallemanns

2008 – 2012

After winning the Helix Board competition out of 800 bands, our cooperation with Ulli Pallemanns started. We recorded our debut album „Spring Kisses Summer Rain“ with him as well as some DVDs for the German Recording Magazine. Unfortunately, the masterpiece „Waterdrops“ stayed unfinished – but partially lives on in songs of „Saying I Love You in a Postrock Way“. Check out the exciting footage from our colab!

Atmosphere Media is a pioneer project which developed the first 4K Ultra High Definition ambience and entertainment plattform for luxury hotels, cruise lines, casinos, bars, lounges, restaurants and spas.

Studio Live Jams

2016 – 2017

The concept of Studio Live Jams is quite as simple as challenging: a radio host and a band do 1 hour of nonstop live recording. No cuts, no overdubs, no second take. And the whole thing gets broadcasted via livestream and on the radio. Hosted by Vincent Ederle we did 2 live jams together with Toniforum Graz. Audio files can be found below!

2011

We have invited Georg Gratzer for one session with Atmosphere Media – he truly is the Godfather of reeds! From woodwinds to saxophones, from clarinets to didgeridoo, he masters all of those instruments. Check out the compositions we did together on the “All The Things“ record!

CD 01

With Peter Stodulka

2008 – 2011

It was at “Klavierpeter“ Stodulka’s project studio in late 2007 when the first TM songs were jammed and recorded. One of the tracks “Not Yet“ later on won the Helix Board Contest to set of our journey. The studio does not exist anymore but we gave it a warm hearted fare well performance in 2011. Check out the Media section for some pictures of that faithful night and of course, the first TM performance video ever!

Jazz Chamber Music

2016 – 2017

With Petra Music (flute), Chien-Ching Kuo (violin) and Sigrid Narowetz (violoncello), we created a greater version of “Recorder Various“, focussing on Antonio Vivaldis solo concerts. That led us to the biggest European flute festival in Munich where we were able to present some brand new arrangements of Vivaldis “La Notte“. Check out this memorable evening in our Media section!

Recorder Various Taiwan

2014

“Recorder Various“ is a musical concept based on contrasting continents, musical styles, composers’ backgrounds and instruments. Taiwanese music manager Evy Kao and our own composer/bass player Wolfgang Radl masterminded this project where baroque and contemporary music was combined as well as basso continuo and drum ‘n’ bass and it all was played solo in both ways, the ancient tradition and modern jazz scales. Brighten up your musical background by checking out “The best of Tainan“ video in our Media section!

Recorder Various Austria

2014 – 2015

Once TM returned to Austria, we decided to further develop the concept of “Recorder Various“and were looking for local support. The project was joined by the wonderful artists Lena Tschinderle on the recorder and Sigrid Narowetz on the cello. The Austrian version of “Recorder Various” is currently focusing on the works of baroque composers, eg. Henry Purcell, G.F. Telemann and Antonio Vivaldi, to mix it up with organic drum’n’bass music. Check out the gallery from our gig at one of the most famous Jazz locations in Austria in our Media section!
