Surely, a certain strictness and discipline run through the young clarinettist’s highly controlled, form-conscious compositions like a thread. Yet, captivating accuracy and precision unleash a deep-rooted dynamic and freedom. On a different level, it is, above all, their diverse stylistic restlessness which fills the octet, consisting of some of the most innovative young musicians of Austrian provenance, with an abundance of intelligent life. At first glance, this appears as a successful mix of rap, jazz, minimal, and modern composition techniques. Almost zappaesk, but always highly varied. 

However, Vincent Pongracz succeeds in combining very different elements that seem almost opposite on paper in such an organic manner that renders the question of eclecticism, dominance, and rulebooks completely unnecessary. Everything just evolves as an exciting artistic process which has a lot of groove and intensifies the dynamics with thrilling twists and turns. Six years ago, the Copenhagen-based musician with ties to the Jazzwerkstatt Wien was invited to recruit the so-called stage band for the famous Vienna music club Porgy & Bess. It was a success story from which the Synesthetic Octet emerged. 

Three years ago, they debuted with Rastlos, a very mature and highly sensational album. Their current CD, In the Meanwhile Shoot Me a Movie (like Rastlos also on Jazzwerkstatt Records) adds more sophisticated miniatures, and, just in case, Vincent Pongracz also treads slightly grippier and rockier paths with the Synesthetic Quartet. 

Pongracz is, moreover, known as one of the four Woody Black 4 bass clarinettists, a refined quartet leaning towards lively chamber jazz.
