The band (the) Kurws was founded in May 2008. An impromptu ping pong session ended with the creation of the group. Since then they have been exploring together, not within the boundaries of a specific genre, but at the foundation of rock’s “substance”, expression and sound. This is a workshop in which improvisations interlace with compositions that constitute frozen records of the creative process. Using repetition, recombination, variation and contrast, they play with memory and expectations. Post punk, krautrock, rock in opposition, funk, no wave – these styles of playing, motifs and riffs were heard by us many times, but here they have been presented in completely new contexts – they have been extracted from their natural habitat, distilled in a specific manner, juxtaposed, used in new ways and deconstructed.
