We’ve kept company a long time. Laughing, talking. Being silent and being loud together.
From silence springs sound, from all that was and all that will be.
Moments flicker past but there will always be a new “now”.
Condensed listening and concentrated playing.
Preferring to subtract elements, highlighting simplicity, subtlety – and occasionally layer on bursts of sound.
Three musicians melding together, transforming into an instrument gathering impressions and playfully processing them.
