(…) Free improvisation, like this trio’s performance at the Sound Disobedience Festival, makes no distinction between silence and sound, rhythm and entropy, and well, performer and witness. The performers’ DNA is encoded by many generations of music makers. Consciously (most probably unconsciously), Luís Vicente draws on jazz from its origins: Satchmo’s slurs, Miles’ murmurs, and Raymond Scott’s toy trumpets. Seppe Gebruers’ piano imagines what Chopin would summon if he were to meet Evan Parker, and Onno Govaert’s pulse takes a New Orleans parade route into the concert hall. Their music is that of equanimity, or the wisdom grounded in freedom, one not dependent on duality. There is no distinction between beauty/ugliness, good/bad, or noise/melody. Everything they play here comes from the subtle body and is infused with a certain bliss.
