Als Pianist und Komponist ist Felix Hauptmann Teil der jungen, progressiven Jazzszene. Er arbeitet mit diversen Ensembles wie dem © Inês Pizarro Correia, Fabian Dudek Quartett, dem Pascal Klewer Quintett & Bigband sowie dem Berthold Brauer Sextett zusammen.
Hauptmann veröffentlichte mehrere Tonträger unter eigenem Namen wie beispielsweise "TALK" und "Bloom". Im Februar 2022 erschien das erste Album seines Trios "Percussion”. From the press release:
„I began writing this music in the winter of 2019 with the quiet urge to find a more honest way of expression.
This new music includes many layers of feelings and thoughts which I had previously felt unable to release. To be able to express these I needed to start working consistently with the wonderful musicians and my longtime friends Roger and Leif. Both are insanely committed and willing to put a lot of time into rehearsing, talking and playing. After several months of intense work with the ensemble, a general trust began to grow between us – exactly what I was looking for the whole time. The compositions are very complex, leaving a lot of questions unanswered for the three of us, which made us learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. I want the music to be an invitation to try not to expect anything from anyone: it is an invitation for you, the listener as well as for us, the musicians. Through this absence of expectations I hope we can get closer together by accepting more diversity in the arts and in human relationships.“
