Shane Cooper

This year’s guest curator of the Jazzwerkstatt, the South African musician Shane Cooper, is a jack-of-all-trades and a king of the hill. His bass playing (both contra and E) is celestial, he’s recently added performance art to his bag of tricks (cf. “center of the left good idea” from artist William Kentridge), he produces film music and radio hits like there’s no tomorrow, he composes theater music and — last but not least — he performs with legends like Louis Moholo and Zim Ngqawana. His solo project “Card On Spokes” is impossible to dance to; instead it is (to quote one of his songs) “the dance of things to come.”
