album info

The new CD, coming out in autumn 2018, also features Gerry Hemingway, one of the most important drummers in the history of jazz and improvisation. His arrival and a more rhythmic and groovy improvisation style make the new CD more jazzy than Alternating Flows. The ensemble has overcome the fundamentalist tendencies of New Freely Improvised Music, without completely negating them. Gerry Hemingway contributes to the group's language with clear and jazzy accents, providing a strong rhythmic ingredient. A times, this can result in a distinctive tribal and ritual character, bordering on trance. This allows Dominik Dolega's mix of live electronics and lithophones to alternate between reinforcing the rhythmic undercurrent and exploring new sounds. Hemingway's contribution reflects both his experience as improviser and his rich musical imagination. On the CD, he also shows his remarkable vocal skills.
