Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra is currently an eleven-piece group which can extend to become a larger ensemble. AMEO has made its home in Berlin since 2006, and has performed over 220 concerts in 20 countries on four continents. It focuses on presenting compositions of its founder Daniel Glatzel which both defy and extend musical boundaries. It draws on a colourful panorama of jazz, avantgarde, independent and world music “but sounds like it belongs in a new sub-genre all of its own” (Jazzwise). Its current program was set for performance at Berghain. AMEO has also collaborated with Hermeto Pascoal and Anthony Braxton, and was the first ever winner of the German Jazz Prize for large ensemble.
