KRONIX live at Kunstfabrik-Schlot, Berlin – September 14th, 2017:
KRONIX is the duo project of Belgian-Canadian saxophonist Peter Van Huffel and Ukranian-Canadian guitarist Alex Maksymiw. It highlights the two performers as unique individual musicians and as strong intellectual composers. The repertoire performed by the duo consists predominantly of their own compositions, and continues move beyond their shared traditional jazz background into a world of exploratory sound and improvisation where acoustic and electronic musical genres collide. This is reflective, rhythmic, energetic and exploratory music, performed by two truly gifted musicians who work together in perfect symbiosis. Van Huffel and Maksymiw first performed together in the Ukraine and Poland at the end of 2012. They have been working together as a duo since Maksymiw’s move to Berlin in the summer of 2013, where Van Huffel has resided since 2008. The debut album from KRONIX, featuring compositions by each musician adapted for this project, was released in 2015 on Barcelona’s Fresh Sound Records.
