Promise of love
In 2018 the current Flight Crew came together.
Katrin Achinger is currently on tour with the new Flight Crew. They are ready to take off with the material of the album "Simple Song" and some more older songs. Krischa Weber accompanies Katrin on her cello. She lives and works in Hamburg with different Ensembles, playing improvised music, music for films and teaches. On their CD-Player they bring along beats by Chazzy Wezar, Medusa, Ali Busse and others. So let them take you on a flight so high, so high...
The current 'Flight Crew' consists of Krisha Weber Cello
2014 was quite a busy year with performances at various venues. I performed as guest musician at the "blurred edges" (Festival für aktuelle Musik Hamburg) along with Andy Giorbino and Krischa Weber on May, 14th. Titled "Flying Fish plays Fischinger" our task was to produce an audiolayer as an additional dimension to Oskar Fischingers short films. On June, 13th, Andy and me musically accompanied live another silent movie (by Jack Smith) from 1963/65, titled "Normal Love". This was part of the "Flora@Labora"-week in the Metropolis cinema. And then several gigs followed with Krischa - Wilhelmsburg artville in July, Hannover Oberdeck on August, 16th, and at the end of that year we played at the Hörbar Ausklangfestival für experimentelle Musik on December, 28th. 2015 we started performing at the GEDOK-gallery "Zwischenspiel" on April,26th. Enjoy the photos on this homepage or the you-tube video.

New Flight Crew, June 2013
The actual Flight Crew consists just of my co-pilot Krischa Weber and myself. We are ready to take off with the material of the album "Simple Song" and some more older songs. Krischa Weber accompanies me on her cello. She lives and works in Hamburg with different Ensembles, playing improvised music, music for films and teaches. On our CD-Player we bring along beats by Chazzy Wezar, Medusa, Ali Busse and others. So let us take you on a flight so high, so high... Best wishes and safe landing
Period of Orientation, May 2011
Without Rüdiger the Flight Crew will not be able to perform 'Simple Song' the way it was meant to be. At the moment I am working on a new concept for my music. Being on an adventurous trip, listening to myself and to music that has been there before - going deeper into Jazz - compounding, putting puzzle-pieces together, composing and looking for landmarks of inspiration, rearranging 'Simple Song' for future performances and writing tunes every day. As soon as there will be any song available you'll find it here on this side, You-Tube or MySpace. Take care!
Rüdiger Klose dies.
September 27th 2010
To find the traces of his overwhelming creativity follow these links:
A records company for 'Simple Song' has not yet been found. I have to learn that the infrastructure of music business has completely changed and that the ways my music used to go from inside to the public don't work any longer. So I'm busy learning about new strategies for publishing music.
New Album Finished Jan 27th 2009
The new album 'simple song' is done and now I'm looking into ways of releasing the album to the public. For further information you can visit the new 'simple song' section on this website.
Studio Sessions Sep 17th 2008
After a mindblowing studio session with the Flight Crew, I'm now recording the last couple of tracks of all 14 new songs that will be featured on my new album which is scheduled for 2009. Preview clips of a few of those songs will be available exclusively on this site by the end of October.
Live Gig Canceled Jan 15th 2008
The concert we had announced for January 28th unfortunately had to be canceled after one of the band members was forced to leave the country for a couple of weeks. The band will probably play at 'Astrastuben' at another date now. We'll keep you posted.
New Concert Announced Nov 29th 2007
Playing a concert with the Flight Crew in Hamburg, germany. January 28th 2008 at the 'Astrastube' Max-Brauer-allee 200
