Matthias Kurth (* 1984 in Preetz) electric guitar
Matthias Kurth studied jazz/rock/pop guitar at the ArtEZ Conservatorium Arnhem with Frank Sichmann and graduated in 2008, in the same academic year as shortfilmlivemusic member Lutz Streun.
His current formations include Vociferous!4 (jazz/improvisation/avant-garde), Matthias Kurth Quartet (jazz-rock/fusion), HardKurth (instrumental rock), shortfilmlivemusic (improvised music for short films), Two Generations of Jazz (jazz quartet with Hans Braber and Martin Gjakonovski) and Fröhlich (groove rock).
Especially Vociferous!4 and shortfilmlivemusic lead him to somewhat larger music and film festivals and to renowned jazz clubs (Jazzwelten Dresden, International Jazz Festival Viersen, Boskovice/ Czech Republik, Traumzeit Festival Duisburg, Filmfest Dresden, Filmnächte am Elbufer Dresden, Tuchfabrik Trier, Stadtgarten Köln, Fête de la Musique Paris and many more)
Kurth’s guitar play is characterized by virtuosity and individuality, in both the jazz and the rock music area. His joy of experimenting and improvising lead him to the field of free improvisation, where he used various effect devices and intractable playing techniques.
Kurth lives as a freelance musician in his hometown Cologne (Ehrenfeld).
