Between the Tunnel and the Train
Cee, Lind, Wertmüller. Audiovisual Concert
Inscrutable soundscapes, energetic improvisations, virtuosity and melancholy
A common feature of the three musicians’ work is their ability to embark on an extreme range of instrumental parameters creating their sound: furious tempo, extreme density of sounds and the exact opposite of all that: ample, serene soundscapes are condensed into sound sculptures. They seem to gain their sound complexity from the very components of natural forces, even to add another genre, while running the risk of missing their destination in their speedy inebriation.
