Frode Gjerstad - altosax and clarinets / Jon Rune Strøm - acoustic bass / Paal Nilssen-Love - drum
Gjerstad and Nilssen-Love´s collaboration goes back to 1992 when Frode formed Circulasione Totale Orchestra together Paal. Since then, they have worked together in various settings as duo, trio and quartets; sometimes featuring guests like Jeb Bishop, Bobby Bradford and Peter Brötzmann. The trio's music has its roots in the free-jazz tradition, the way it was defined by Coleman, Mingus, Dolphy and Coltrane. The trio also takes inspiration from the European free scene.
The Swiss noise improvisation trio dQtç - Lionel Friedli - drums / Vincent Membrez - Minimoog / Antoine Läng - voice and electronics
Chaotic electronic rhythms and accidents extract sound events and turn them, once stubbornly repeated, into patterns, sometimes through long psychedelic progressions, in order to finally reveal a frame. dQtç multiply the opportunities to experiment with new modes, mostly asymmetric and ramshackle to the limit of explosion, in search of an intensity of speech that can only be found through an urgence of gesture.
LEON (CH) with JOE TALIA
Raphaël Ortis - bass / Louis Schild - bass/ Joe Talia - percussion
Initiated by the Insubordinations Netlabel this meeting allowed to work several principles of improvisation as well as a better understanding of the dynamics created by a two-bass playing. The project has expanded and now becomes a trio by inviting a drummer or a percussionist as different as possible on each concert, in order to constantly renew the sound language.
Leon will be performing with drummer, percussionist and electro-acoustic performer, Joe Talia.
Dick Threats are Mark Groves and Sharryn Koppens : Overdriven sampled rhythms, oscillations, cassette tape, voice, trumpet and analogue electronics.
