12 POINTS – MOPO, OLIVIA TRUMMER TRIO
The next edition of this small but beautifully formed festival takes place in Dublin 13 – 16 February 2013, when twelve bands will perform over four nights, selected from hundreds of online submissions.
12 Points Festival alternates between Dublin and partner cities (Porto in Portugal was the location for the 2012 edition). With its compact size, it’s a unique opportunity for artists to get to know each other, create lasting friendships and networks, and give their absolute performance best before an enthusiastic local audience, media and industry professionals.
There is no better festival to experience the breadth, energy, ambition and diversity through which young European musicians are making the jazz of tomorrow.
Wednesday 13 February
Headed up by a gutsy baritone saxophone, Mopo takes us on a freewheeling ride, from speed punk to funky Afrobeat, with occasional flashes of mordant Finnish humour, free blowing and music hall nostalgia.
“The splendidly stunning atmosphere of the gig absolutely made one believe in the future of jazz.” – Suomijazz.com
Olivia Trunmer Trio (Berlin)
An unusually versatile artist, excelling at classical and jazz piano, songwriting and singing in both English and German. With bright and engaging music throughout, Olivia comes to Dublin with her Berlin based rhythm section in tow.
“This pianist and singer overtakes the contrary jazz conventions and expectations, relying instead on the liberal principles of the improvisational music. A victory right down the line.” – Jazz Podium
With a colourful performance and explosive sounds, Ozma appeal to a wide audience, dancing halfway between a mutant post-rock noise and a jungle of pop-jazz.
“Very organic scores, long forms and exciting contrasts. The influence of Led Zeppelin comes to mind…” – Jazzman Magazine
