Manuel Hermia/Valentin Ceccaldi/Sylvain Darrifourcq
Manuel Hermia/Valentin Ceccaldi/Sylvain Darrifourcq
A new group featuring three of Europe’s most dizzyingly creative musicians, this astonishing trio’s fearless, joyful compositions take elements of free jazz, world music, rock, and chamber music and collage them into their bewildering, boundary-obliterating sound. Belgium’s Manuel Hermia approaches soprano, alto and tenor saxophones as well as flute and bansuri with powerful curiosity and vitality. French cellist Valentin Ceccaldi (Joëlle Léandre) plays with the absorbing intensity of a black hole, pulling listeners into mind bending plucked riffs and gale-force bowing, while drummer Sylvain Darrifourcq (Émile Parisien, In Love With) moves from microscopic sound investigations to breakneck bebop/post-punk blasting with a rare mix of precision and abandon.
