Frode Gjerstad Ramiro Molina
Unseen Seas [FMRCD412]

I first met Ramiro Molina in 2013. I was touring in South- America with my trio and Ramiro helped me setting up some gigs in Chile. After our arrival, he took us to the fish market and I had some of the most beautiful fish dishes in my life - so sim- ple and so tasty! That was my main reason for wanting to go back. the fish market. Ramiro invited my back in September of 2015. I did a workshop there and we played some gigs together as well as recorded the music for this CD. It is great to meet someone on the other side of the globe and to be able to play in a meaningful way after only a few minutes. Thanks for a very nice stay in your house and for the music! Frode Gjerstad

Ntschuks Bonga Andy Champion Cory Mwamba

The Bonga/Champion/Mwamba Trio was formed in the summer of 2012. At the time Ntshuks was in Newcastle on tour with the RSC and approached Paul Bream of Jazz North East about the possibility of playing whilst in town. Ntshuks suggested asking Corey to play and Paul suggested Andy Champion as the third member of the group. Corey & Andy have a long and varied musical history, and Ntshuks and Corey played as part of Orphy Robinson’s Spontaneous Cosmic Raw Xtra, as well as in Corey’s own group, Heralds. Paul programmed the trio to appear at the Very Long Splinter end of season concert at the Bridge Hotel. The musical rapport was instantaneous and each subse- quent meeting has been explosive. The trio appeared at the Gateshead International Festival in 2013, supporting the Louis Moholo-Moholo / Alexander Hawkins Duo. The music on this CD was recorded at the Paperstone Studios in Nottingham in Nov 2013. The trio spent a day playing in a beautiful room performing a series of improvisations that form the Paperstone Suite parts I-VII.


Mia Zabelka Nicola Hein

This duo from Vienna and Cologne plays free improvised music. The music is created in the moment, without previously agreed concepts or compositions. Beside the pleasure in free improvisation itself, a further strong basis the musicians share is the process of extending traditional instrumental techniques (both with and without preparation and tools), with which the group creates dense but dynamic sonic landscapes with significant room for silence. The heterogeneous instrumentation - string instruments, whether plucked or bowed - provides an enormous acoustic field of potential; nonetheless, it is not always clear which instrument is the source of the sound heard at a given moment.


Vasco Trilla prepared drums and assorted percussion

Vasco is really one of the modern masters of a new 'free' approach to drum set and percussion Defying the accepted conventions of speed, and 'flashy' drum set playing, making an incredible musical statement. Taking us through myriad of tones and emotions along a varied and tonally hybrid journey. A must have for all drum set players who want to add something a little different to their sound world!
