Concert in St. Louis
"In the last four or five years there has been a clear set trend towards stillness in improvised music. The classical parameters -- the forming of energy states, the spontaneous, dense communication -- are not relevant to this music, but rather the empty spaces, the disparate, non-dynamic, the recessed. Stillness. So these are the best prerequisites not to reproduce the 'cliché of stillness,' but rather to initiate a restful as well as very open and highly flexible improvising process. Stillness is not assumed here, is not a result and an purpose worth aspiring for, but rather it is a means to form. The strong rustling improvisation does not deplete itself, but rather brings forth new constellation of their playing together (also next to each other). It is slow, peaceful, very relaxed flowing music. But whoever listens closely will hear the tension and the exertion, the wrestling to create expression."
