06 mar 2020 - announcement - new release: philipp rumsch ensemble - µ: of anxiety x discernment


Today I have the pleasure to announce the second album of my ensemble. It will be released on March 27 via Denovali on CD | LP | digital. 

During the last two years I wrote the lyrics and music for this album in which I aimed for developing a multi-dimensional picture of the state of anxiety. The album was partly recorded in binaural audio done with special dummy heads.


You can listen to the first track preview on Soundcloud now. I’m looking forward to share more with you in the next days.


The production of µ: of anxiety x discernment has been supported by Initiative Musik gGmbH with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.

18/11/05 - new video: philipp rumsch ensemble, reflections: part IV.


The final part of our live video trilogy shot at UT Connewitz last February is out now. Each video approaches different aspects of the concert we played that day. Whereas prologue is a short concert movie, part I embodies a classic live video. However, part IV was done in one take with only one camera. Thanks to tobiasschuetze.de and Toni Propeller Musikfotografie for the video and to Nico Teichmann for the sound.

18/09/20 - Receiving Leipzig award for young jazz musicians (Leipziger Jazznachwuchspreis der Marion-Ermer-Stiftung)


It’s official - I’m going to receive this year’s Jazznachwuchspreis (award for young jazz musicians) of the city of Leipzig, funded by Marion Ermer foundation. You can find the official press release here (in German).

I’m still overwhelmed and incredibly thankful for all the support I receive from many people and institutions. However, the most important people are those who bring this lunatic idea of a large ensemble to life with unbelievable commitment and selflessness:


Erik Leuthäuser | Vincent Hahn | Antonia Hausmann | Matti Oehl | Johannes Moritz | Franziska Ludwig | Volker Heuken | Markus Rom | Paul Brauner | Christian Dähne | Maximilian Stadtfeld | Nico Teichmann


Many thanks to Georg Demel | Lisa Zwinzscher | Joshua Lutz | Philipp Rohmer | Philipp Scholz | Sebastian Wehle - for supporting the project with regularity and overwhelming dedication as well as to many other people who were part of this exciting journey. Last but not least thanks to Denovali for being such an important part within this crazy thing.


By playing a laureate concert with my ensemble we'll have the fortunate opportunity of opening the Leipzig Jazzfestival - 11th october at UT Connewitz (Tickets / infos available here).


I would be tremendously happy to meet a lot of you there.

My acknowledgements are going to you as well as to a lot of other companions. Hugs, Philipp
