(printed Innersleeve + Download) The Lp Has A Different Tracklisting Than The Cd!what Happens When You Bring Two Born Improvisers Together In A Monastery? The Reed-player Joachim Badenhorst And Bassist Brice Soniano Distilled No Less Than 20 New Pieces Out Of Their Stay, Enough To Fill Both Lp And Cd.
What happens when you bring two born improvisers together in a monastery? It was with this question in mind that the W.E.R.F. label gave carte blanche to the Rawfishboys, a contemporary duo, to spend a week at the 16 th -century Abbey of St Godelieve in Bruges, never previously open to the public, so that they could work on a completely new repertoire. The reed-player Joachim Badenhorst and bassist Brice Soniano distilled no less than 20 new pieces out of their stay in this almost sacral retreat, enough to fill both a CD and an LP!
On the LP "The White Starline", spontaneous improvisation alternates with random street recordings and sound collages. All this is then flavoured with a spiritual seasoning that creates a connection between the CD and the LP.
The CD is called "Fengling" and consists of work that is poised between minimalism, chamber music and soundscapes. Music that takes you on a dreamlike trip to higher spheres. Those who like Colin Stetson or John Zorn's chamber music can now add this musical masterpiece to their collection.
Both releases appear March 3rd on the W.E.R.F. label, a mark of quality in Belgian jazz since 1993
