The Leipzig University of Music and Drama is the school, where Drummer Max Stadtfeld studied, under teachers including Heinrich Köbberling and Michael Wollny. At the beginning of 2019, Wollny chose him for his BAU.HAUS.KLANG quintet with Emile Parisien, Leafcutter John and Wolfgang Heisig. This experience wasn't just the continuation of the teacher-student relationship, because Leipzig offers other opportunities too: several clubs and other venues where someone like Max Stadtfeld could go and really free up his playing and become part of a community. He feeds his own rhythmic impetus and energy into his band, enabling the soloists to rise up off it and occupies just the space he finds necessary.
