The Ozma Quintet:
Improbable is the essence of Ozma: a creative, joyous and adventurous mix, risky and captivating. The quintet is 15 years old with passionate projects which marry music with images.
EDOUARD SERO-GUILLAUME BASS COMPOSITION
A weakness for science fiction, a love of the imaginary, he loves losing himself in stories. Ingenious architect, his bass is endlessly inventing harmonic progressions which alter the baroque and push and shove the pop versions. Between serious lows and bantering high notes, he unchains the soloists, occasionally scolding them.
JULIEN SORO SAXOPHONES
Formidable ping-pong player, gastronomic expert, he plays what he hears and he hears quite a bit. Once he has his sax in hand, his implication is total. His discourse is personal and singular, a powerful proposition without being overbearing. Eloquent and funny on stage, he is moody and yet assured.
GUILLAUME NUSS TROMBONE
Olympian handyman and insatiable partier, each note of his trombone hits the bull’s eye. His groove is relentless, his lyricism is poignant, and he juggles the obvious, the appropriate and the exact and never misses. His trombone has a suave and delicate touch.
TAM DE VILLIERS GUITAR
Tireless orator, politics and history buff, this English guitarist dreams music, lives in an immense interior world of pure musical thought. He astonishes through his volcanic performances and yet his naïve pop accompaniments are reassuring, enveloping the group’s sound in his warm passionate universe.
