Filtron M is a project created by New York based keyboarder, composer and producer Manu Koch which serves as a platform for a selection of musicians and visual artists from around the globe.
Manu Koch has been exposed to numerous genres and musical cultures by working and touring with some leading figures in contemporary music for nearly two decades. Filtron M draws from this extensive experience as a sideman, ranging from Afro-Pop star Angélique Kidjo to projects by Miles Davis bassist and Santana’s musical director Benny Rietveld, collaborating on numerous productions by New York soul and blues artist Tomás Doncker or touring internationally with the New York Gypsy All-Stars.
In live performances Filtron M appears in various units such as Unique Afrique, with bassist Patrick Andy from Madagascar and Surinamese drummer Harvey Wirht, and often features guests.
“Anybody with a taste for avant-garde jazz fusion, ambient over the edge sound is gonna flip over Manu Koch and Filtron M’s Mandatory Underground, a terrific four composition EP which sounds like Weather Report one second and some dark angled The XX style the next.” – rocknycliveandrecorded.com
