(ENG)
Getting lost in tiny (sound) spaces: Peter Vandenberghe (piano) and Bart Maris (trumpet) dive enthusiastically into the adventure as a duo. Working together for over 25 years in several larger formations (X-Legged Sally and Flat Earth Society, to name the most renowned) this duo presents more direct musical dialogues in ever-changing soundscapes using compositions of Maris, arrangements of Vandenberghe and improvised pieces.

The basic idea is a strictly acoustic setting, with a focus on dynamics and density - color - texture, parameters that define their music as do tonality - rhythm. Therefore, this duo is always surprising; compositions are vehicles for improvisation, sometimes creating elongated soundscapes, sometimes short and direct pieces. The CD reveals only a glimpse of the imagination of the duo.

Verdwalen in kleine (klank)ruimtes: Peter Vandenberghe (piano) en Bart Maris (trompet) duiken vol enthousiasme in het avontuur als duo. Na 25 jaar in verschillende grotere formaties samen te werken (X-Legged Sally en Flat Earth Society, om de meest bekende te noemen) zoeken ze naar directere muzikale dialogen in steeds wisselende klanklandschappen met behulp van composities van Maris, arrangementen van Vandenberghe en vrij ge´mproviseerde stukken.

Het basisidee is een strikt akoestisch setting, met focus op dynamiek en densiteit - kleur - textuur, parameters die hun muziek evenzeer bepalen als tonaliteit - ritme. Daardoor komt dit duo steeds verassend uit de hoek; composities worden vehikels voor improvisatie, soms lang gestrekte soundscapes, dan weer een aantal korte en directe stukken. De CD onthult slechts een glimp van de verbeelding van dit duo.

Press

"This is a fantastic album that not only plays with space, but colour, tonality, rhythm, texture, colour and everything else in between. But if jazz isn't you thing and you're starting to get scared, fret not, this isn't mind melting stuff, there is a simplicity to it, but you have to break it code first and don't mind getting lost in tiny spacesů" this year in music , UK 12/01/2017)
