Axel Dörner and Mazen Kerbaj have been playing together since 2005, in duo and in various configurations. Their most reputed collaboration is brass quartet Ariha (with Franz Hautzinger on trumpet and Carl Ludwig Hübsch on tuba) which has released an album on Al Maslakh Records in 2015. Döner Kebab is their first album as a duo.

Döner Kebab was recorded in Berlin in 2017, and comprises three pieces; the first two are purely acoustic, while the third one sees both Kerbaj and Dörner adding electronics to their arsenal. However, those who are familiar with the two musicians’ previous works will not find it surprising to hear that the whole album sounds like it was made with electronic instruments. In recent years, Dörner and Kerbaj have developed their personal musical language and highly unique techniques for their instrument, the trumpet, which they manage to make sound like anything but a trumpet.
