“Letting loose is the driving force of this comprehensive generational trio that jettisons and unleashes, with symbiotically spontaneous reactions and a delicate feel for what the music offers in the moment, the yet to be heard.
In this formation the three daring improvisationalists fare range from atonal, expressive chamber music to a multilayered onomatopoeia captured as an interplay breathing between density and lightness. (Flo Keller)”
