"... Huszar works like a man possessed throughout this performance, triggering samples, keeping the steady throb of the groove(s) in play, and creating smooth transitions between various sections of "The Dark Side" and "The Bright Side"—the two lengthy suites that fill out this ninety-minute program. He's always expertly steering the show, setting things in motion with various electronics, loops, samples, and real-time drumming escapades... It's hard to know what to call this—electro-futurism, fusion moderne, or something along those lines could work—but a genre tag is really irrelevant. Better to simply look and listen to what Huszar has created. It's art and visual spectacle rolled into one." (Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz)

"… it IS indeed drumming, very good drumming in our opinion." (Dan Shinder, Drum Talk TV)

"Only a few drummers take a creative approach to electronic percussion and push their possibilities to the limit. One of them is Endre Huszár, a Hungarian drummer who's been working on this subject intensively for almost 30 years. On his recently released 3D Blu-Ray he stretches the limits of what's technically possible and clearly shows that e-drums are much more than just a replacement for acoustic drum kits." (Wolfgang Stölzle, Sticks Magazine)

Endre-eNerd3 (that is Endre-eNerdto the power of three) is drummer/composer Endre Huszar's technologically cutting-edge solo project, which is based on a unique drum system that enables him to build up complex improvised musical textures on the electronic drum pads while playing the acoustic kit. The setup consists of some custom built and customized hardware and software components, which make it possible to control all aspects of the creative process, including the recording of musical building blocks, layering, mixing and processing them.

"Although this is a solo project where I'm laying down all musical textures on my own, I thought it would be a lot more interesting to take some friends on stage with me and see how they'd interact with these textures and it was such a great experience to hear all the new dimensions and colours they added to my ideas." (Endre-eNerd)

9:30 Collective


What is 9:30 Collective anyway?

Endre says:
"We've thought a lot about this ... Can one call a changing composition of musicians that show up once every seven years a group? Not really ... So all we can say is that we get together now and again, record an album, give a few concerts receiving enthusiastic professional and media feedback and entailing total financial fiasco. Which, given the present situation of the musical world, is not bad at all."

KÁOSZ Központ


The first half of the name KÁOSZ (meaning chaos in Hungarian) Centre is actually an acronym that stands for Áron Kovács National Entertainment Centre. The Centre, which is named after the frontman, but includes the whole band.

KÁOSZ Központ. It's a strange expression. Chaos means confusion, bedlam, a disorderly mass, while the Centre suggests order and the state of being organized. It sounds like an insoluble conflict... Welcome to KÁOSZ Központ...
