|musical projects of Iven Hausmann are:|
is a new musical project who‘s roots go back in history for over 25 years. The starting point is the reflection upon live-projects concerning instrumental music, which was mainly performed between the years of 1977-1986 under the name of FUSION. The group FUSION was foremost active in the DDR (East Germany) and throughout the rest of Eastern Europe. Their most important characteristic was the blending of various musical styles ranging from Free Jazz to Pop. The arrangements written for the large ensemble were complex and yet left a lot of space for improvisation.
After a 17 year pause this concept has found its continuation in ~TEMP. Radio Stations repeatedly have shown a keen interest in doing some collaborative work and are offering their full support. As the name ~TEMP suggests - this is not simply a Revival Band but the expansion upon various musical developments, which have taken place over the years, along with the growth and experiences of the musicians.
36 years later it comes in a new line-up with a new sound - better than ever!
