Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts
Entprima was the name of the label – Jazz was the style he was best known in – Cosmonauts was the synonym for a start into the unknown. That’s how this name came up.
With the Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts the musical comeback of former trumpet player Horst Grabosch began. Within one year the music developed rapidly. After three projects which resultetd as artist entities on the streaming platforms, from 2022 he releases under his real name using the old entities as collaborative style guide.
How I became a cosmonaut
My comeback to the music business after 23 years began with the Entprima Jazz Cosmonauts in the summer of 2019 – it was a step into the unknown and was an entry from scratch. EDM seemed to be the right genre to start with, as the production of electronic music was the logical consequence after my first training as a musician and subsequently as an information technologist.
I urgently needed a mental framework for the beginning, and as a science fiction fan I decided to invent a “Spaceship Entprima” for my first musical story, in which people set off for new shores. When I saw that the story would consequently be endless in the context of a lifetime, I concluded this episode with a summary of the previous releases in the album “Dance Studies” and the EP “Spaceship Diner”.
The second story “From Ape to Human” was conceived as a dance drama for the stage. The story is actually a consequence of the findings of “Spaceship Entprima”. Here, too, the protagonists learn that the fantasy of setting off into space cannot be the solution to the current problems on earth. The intelligent coffee machine from “Spaceship Entprima” returns as AI Alexis, but has become far more intelligent.
