About the Composer
Born near Oldenburg in 1959, Karl Frers discovered his love for music at an early age and started to learn how to play the trumpet, the guitar and the piano. Soon the piano became his main instrument.
In parallel to studying his instruments he also engaged intensely in composing, improvisation and music electronics. After his education at music schools he started to study music and graduated with a prediploma in piano and music theory from the Royal Schools of Music in London and then with a “Teacher´s Diploma Piano” from Leinster School of Music in Dublin.
At the University of Bremen he acquired the 1st and 2nd state examination for teaching music and economy/work/technology. Since 1990 he has been an active member of the Bremen music scene in the area jazz/multicultural.
By numerous performances and contributions in radio broadcasts with different formations and solo he was able to introduce his music, composed for the most part by himself, to a larger audience. For further information on his current projects please go to: http://artofchange-music.de/
