Biography

Salute Mummer – the new amazing versatile project of former Klein act MUM member Stefan Jungmair and vocal goddess Betty Semper, both based in Vienna and both into the high art of equivocating.

“Soulorganismstate” makes a debut of a special kind & flavour: Sweet and sour, mellow and yellow, high- and lowdown – all the same. The classically trained Jazz musician, composer/producer and the gifted singer have created an album that could be easily tagged soulful at first listen but there is way much more to it than that. Moreover it´s soulorganic and way beyond the “It’s an ecclectic mix of this and that” bull, you´ll see. Always on the quest for musical contrasts, the two wizards of sound reanimate and masquerade Dance and Funk genre elements into never-known timbres and are a credit to their name.

After all apart from being the title of an XTC record, a `mummer` is someone who likes to disguise, putting on costumes - a synonym for `guiser`. So we´re speaking of someone with various faces and someone who can not easily be identified. All in all `mummers` like to remain a trifle mysterious and unclear, always full of surprises and unpredictable. The Dadaism of MUM is apparent still, it´s an album that doesn´t want to come across dead serious but still has you smiling if you take those blinkers off your ears.

“Soulorganismstate” is clearly a vocal album which does feature three vocalists of a special kind and calibre.
