Marc Halbheer
TEXIT MUSIC presents: Marc Halbheer's 5th Edition Confidence In Symmetry with Klaus Dickbauer (reeds), Robert Bachner (tb), Christy Doran (g), Heiri Kaenzig (b), Marc Halbheer (d)

Release: September 30th 2013 on Texit Music / Cadiz Music

On Marc Halbheer's new album Confidence In Symmetry he introduces a quintet with eminent personalities of the legendary Vienna Art Orchestra and the inventive guitarist Christy Doran.

5TH EDITION is the first band that plays Marc Halbheer’s work as a composer and arranger.

He explains: “The desire to play my own music grew along side my experience as a performer.

But what to write? How should my music sound like?

Finally the Los Angeles based composer David Angel introduced me to the 5th Structure, a slightly different way of looking at harmony. It is linked to the ancient knowledge about the relation of numbers and pitched notes and that pitched intervals equal ratios of numbers and really are polyrhythms.

This appealed to me as a drummer and I begun writing loads of etudes based on the 5th Structure, observing the natural relationship between the intervals and polyrhythms. The resulting musical events lead to the melodies, chords and rhythms and serve as the foundation for improvisation”.

5th Edition is lined up with exceptional talent. All the musicians got worldwide recognition throughout their artistic careers and are amongst the most important European Musicians.

Christy Doran, Heiri Kaenzig and Marc Halbheer have collaborated on many musical projects over the past 20 years. Klaus Dickbauer and Robert Bachner belong to the best wind players ever and were long time members of the Vienna Art Orchestra.
