STEVE BERESFORD TREVOR TAYLOR IAN BRIGHTON
Kontakte Trio [FMRCD449]

The Kontakte Trio ( Beresford , Brighton and Taylor) evolved from one FMR's 30th year anniversary recording sessions at the Toni Visconti studio in Kingston University earlier this year. Taylor and Brighton had been playing together since the early 70's yet never had the opportunity to work with pianist and electronics improviser Steve Beresford. The primary objective as a trio was to explore their common interests in the electronics aspect of improvised music as well as that of the acoustic instrumentation. The recorded output, they feel, is uncompromising and surprising.

Schindler Kolb. Tramontana
MUNICH RAT PACK [FMRCD454]

Spontaneous, accidental, uncalculated, surprising, unheard-of ...All this and much more applies to improvised music! As in life, the unexpected cannot be ruled out.
But sometimes even everyday situations call for improvisation.
As part of the soundart series Akustronik at the Künstlerhaus Streitfeld in Munich, curated by Rainald Schwarz and myself, I had planned a trio with brass player Philipp Kolb and a guitarist with electronics equipment for the performance #5 on 31 May 2014. On the mornig of the gig, the electronics partner, resoundingly and painfully, canceled his participation. Hectic calls around of course failed to find a suitable replacement. Always willing and motivated, Sebastiano Tramontana, our Italian trombone poet living in Munich, stepped in. However, in a guaranteed ACOUSTIC fashion. To meet curatorial guidelines, Philipp Kolb and I spontaneously activated our electric/electronic equipments, complementing the acoustic instruments.
