LP version with download code. Ghent's Steiger are a piano trio, but not in the classical sense. With their versatile style, influenced by different musical genres such as jazz, rock, pop, classical, and electronic music, they try to find a balance between composition and improvisation through the use of experimentation and electronics. Considered pioneers of the Belgian jazz crossover scene, Steiger have been active for six years and have recently found themselves performing at major jazz venues in Flanders, picking up numerous accolades along the way. The trio's highly anticipated sophomore album Give Space was recorded at seven different locations, with the music composed to fit and fight these locations within a dialogue of acoustics, atmospheres and appetition. Field recordings, reverbs, and ambient sounds are all collected within the search for the unpredictable, given space within this dialogue as an essential part of the encounter. As a result, the locations emerge somewhat as a fourth member of the trio. The music, sometimes fixed, sometimes completely free, thus becomes an ever-changing journey into their multi-faceted world.
