Since May 2010 we have been developing our sound - we let it arise from an aboriginal silence to enter a new silence to be recreated again. Each silence is different in quality influenced by situs, locus, temporality, audience and all other circumstances that are providing our common "here and now".
The line up of this sextet/quintet/quartet is changing according its members and potency of the space we perform in. Sounds are played live, samples are mixed in situ. Free improvisation in our intention means not only the communication between musicians but with the dancer likewise. The body is also an instrument. This is the way how the silence that does not exist, can be created.
