Draai Om Je Oren(The Netherlands) “Five free spirits in an exciting collaboration. Surprising, urgent, visionary.”
Volkskrant (The Netherlands) “Mark Lotz Meets Don Byron in Lotz Of Music: ‘Flautist Mark Alban Lotz who gave the most impressive concert.”
Lotz Of Music is a creative vehicle for the improvisations and compositions of flautist Mark Alban Lotz. A group of modernists performing music on the cutting edge of contemporary and jazz.
Some of Europe’s finest musicians contributing their own brilliant musicianship without predetermined sequence in playful movement. An explosive combination in a classical instrumented chamber music setting.
This group transcends the classical chamber music and jazz genre. Combining influences from contemporary, avant-garde, jazz, world, minimal music with ambient music.
Despite all the urgency, the music is refreshing and you find a universe of serene sounds.
"Limits simply do not exist here." (on Lotz Of Music)

Exciting soloist who expands the possibilities of the cello into cello-free areas. His work with orchestra’s, chamber ensembles and jazz/pop bands brought him all over Europe, Africa, China and Russia.
All About Jazz says: creates a multifaceted stylistic approach, comfortably assuming the roll of bassist with the kind of groove that would be unexpected from a classically trained cellist, were it not for his extensive, genre-rich résumé. Represents the viewpoint that the jazz tradition is but one aspect of contemporary improvised music. Worked with a.o. Michiel Braam, ZAPP String4, Herb Robertson, Ngyuen Le, Claudio Puntin, Markus Stockhausen, Eric Vloeimans.
