FLUX is a multi-faceted, stylistically open project for which a musical category still has to be created. Improvisation and risk-taking INTERPLAY - usually found in the genre of jazz - are combined with the sound and ENERGY that you would expect with R&B or Rock/Pop related styles. Ingredients from World Music and orchestral components are adding yet other aspects that round out the special musical characteristics of this project.
The implementation of MEDIA SEQUENCES along with live interacting musicians on stage also makes FLUX special. The ORIGINAL SONGS and the matching media both relate to various appearances of WATER - being shown in the video sequences on screens on stage that blend with the music. Feel free to lean back and enjoy, feel the EXCITEMENT of the music or just be entertained by sounds and ATMOSPHERE.
It is not just the vintage grace of Paul Gehrig's HAMMOND RETRO SOUND being the core of the project, it is also about his contemporary and unique approach of playing which is different from what you would usually expect. The 28 year old organ artist is supported by Thomas Langer on electric and acoustic guitar and Claus Hessler on drums. Both are featured extensively in this project and have earned international recognition as true masters of their instruments.
FLUX ON FIRE (AVAIBLE 22.OCT2016) is the second and newest Album of the FLUX-Project. It has brand news songs in Jazz, Rock but also Blues-Stylistic feelings in it. Improvisation and risk-taking INTERPLAY - usually found in the genre of jazz - are combined with the sound and ENERGY that you would expect with R&B or Rock/Pop related styles.
Paul Gehrig | Hammond-Organ - Fender Rhodes - Piano - Strings
The musical multitalent Paul Gehrig started his career at preschool age. The founder of FLUX still feels at home
on the drums - which surely explains his percussive approach and unique independence on the hammond organ. He displayed his impressive skills with German TV and broadcasting stations BR and ARD. More info on www.paulgehrig.de.
Claus Hessler | Drums
Firmly established in the drumming scene, Claus Hessler can be found at festivals between Mexico, South Korea and anywhere in between. With FLUX he demonstrates technical virtuosity along
with musical taste and sensitivity. As a soloist he is creating textures that you would not really expect from the drums, taking the instrument to a completely different level.

Thomas Langer | Electric & Aboustic Guitar
Stylistic flexibility bridging the gap between the Beatles and Pat Metheny is the trademark of Thomas Langer. With cultural awards, several CD publications and the cooperation with Barabara
Dennerlein to his credit, his inspired performance with FLUX is one of a kind - he is obviously enjoying the musical freedom inside the "Hammond-Sound Cloud".
