The Alpine Experience


After years of experimenting with the group Alpine Jazz Herd to get access to the nucleus of Swiss Alpine music by means of improvisation, Hans Kennel founded The Alpine Experience. It was an important step to get closer top the core  of typical Alpine music, still by means of improvisation, but with more respect for the already existing, rich variety of these musical sources and his personal roots.
While Rosa Loui is mainly instrumental (with the exception of Kennel’s natural Juz “Am Hans Sine” and two songs composed on two poems by famous poet Kurt Marti). A Call from the Alps is a testimony of  a of a fascinatinbg year-long cooperation with the outstanding female-voice quartet “s’Heuis”, or the Schönbächler Sisters. Four young women whose untempered, bell-clear voices surprisingly remind one of the voices from Bulgaria. However they are deep in an almost disappearing tradtion of the native canton Schwyz, including the Muotatal.

Discography

Mytha Three
An Alphorn Polyphony and Songbook

The most recent studio recording of MYTHA quartet. A rich array of very contrasting pieces of music. From multiphonic introductions, over polyphonic orchestrations of an archaic Call from the Muotatal, up to Beethoven’s Hymn “ Freude schooner Götterfunken”, not to forget many MYTHA grooving pieces, partly in odd meters

How it all Started

After a short out-of-print period, these first historic recordings are now partly available again in this compilation. The then revolutionary music that triggered an avalanche of new alphorn playing, sounds fresh and daring as ever and has lost none of its original energy. An ear-opener!
