ctraltu - ambient acoustic nu-jazz. The man behind ctraltu is Thomas Steffen. In 1978 he started with drums, later he learned sax, keys, studied music science and played in different groups.
Influenced by lot of music the idea is always to combine something fresh with the idea of jazz as improvised music out of the moment. So ctraltu is a studio project with lot of gear for experiments on sounds and recording technology. But in the end - the core of each song - is an acoustic sound or instrument in a nujazz environment.
