Black Stork by the Mate Pozsar Sextet is a new Stereo DSD Jazz release at NativeDSD Music from Hunnia Records. Máté Pozsár is a key figure in the Hungarian Jazz and Creative Music scene. In his music, the Hungarian Free Music tradition and the American Jazz tradition form an organic unity.
He tells us “I founded my sextet in 2018. I wanted a band which definitely needs new solutions in orchestration and gives me new possibilities in both improvised musical concepts and composition. I thought it’s important that the orchestration should also be suitable for sounding my polyphonic ideas of modal harmony.
I had an easy task choosing the members. I was able to choose from my friends with whom we understand each other perfectly, both in the human and musical way. Two of my former conservatory students (Dániel Cseke and Márton Menyhért) are also featured in the production. I invited János Ávéd, Ernő Hock and my best childhood friend Gergő Kováts to join the band. The members are musicians who are thorough, very responsive to opportunities, smart, they can adhere to instructions and yet they can easily handle the musical material as well.
During the creation of the music, among other things I have created systems of rules that break with the process models I usually use or I know as part of an improvised musical tradition. For years, I have developed a close relationship with simultaneous utterances of the seven-degree modes in pandiatonic harmonies. The multi-layeredness is also very attractive for me, when different sections travel in different modal sounds. Our music’s central elements are these harmonic sounds, which appear in every recorded piece. The results of our first two years of work can be heard on this recording.”
