The duo of Johannes Nastesjo on double bass and Vasco Trilla on drums and percussion, an album of extended techniques and unexpected devising, using quietly aggressive techniques balanced by concentrative improv to create unexpected eruptions and unusual sonic environments.

"Johannes Nästesjö works within the genre of modern jazz, improvised and contemporary music as a professional double-bass player and teacher. He has for the last years toured frequently in several different countries in Europe, as well as Brazil, Vietnam, Gambia, Mali and USA and has appeared on 29 recordings. During the last years he has been working with Tom Chant, Agustí Fernández, Joe Morris, Ramon Lopez, Marco Mesquida, Ramon Prats, Albert Cirera, Peter Nilsson, Hans Nyman, Martin Küchen, Håkon Berre, Sture Ericson, Fred Lonberg Holm, Lotte Anker, Ståle Liavik & Vasco Trilla and many more."-Johannes Nästesjö website
"His bass playing naturally finds the important common denominators, and composition-wise, every ingredient serves its purpose."-Johannes Cornell; Dagens Nyheter (Sweden's most influential newspaper)
"Nästesjö is extremely confident with his compositions, which is shown through his sensitive and excellent bass playing"-Stefan Nilsson; Nerikes Allehanda (newspaper)
"It's not the instrumentation in itself that makes the music interesting - double bass, violin, glockenspiel and baritone saxophone should, by the way, meet more often - it's rather Johannes Nästesjö's inventive compositions and his brilliant arrangement skills."-Peter Bornemar; Dig Jazz (jazz magazine)
"Vasco Trilla was born in Barcelona, and started playing drums at the age of nineteen. His first influences were progressive rock and metal, but gradually he developed an interest in a variety of different genres such as jazz, Indian music, African music, klezmer, free improvisation, etc.
Since then he has collaborated, toured and recorded with many different bands and projects such as Boi Akih (an ethno-jazz band from the Netherlands), Planeta Imaginario (progressive jazz-rock) October Equus (avant-rock), The Oddvisers (pop-avant), Fine! (indie pop-rock), Mundo Flotante (ethno-jazz-rock), Kaulakau/Cobla Sant Jordi (an ethno-jazz Catalan orchestra), Filthy Habits Ensemble (a jazz octet playing Zappa's and Stravinsky's repertoire), Cows On Trees (a jazz-improv quartet with Susana Santos Silva and Kaja Draksler), Balimonster (an impro-ethno duo with Angel Ontalva), Yedo Gibson-Vasco Trilla duo (an improv sax & drums duo), Outerzone (jazz-core), Reptilian Mambo (mambo free rock), Liba's Traum, etc.
In the last years he has been playing and experimenting on the free-improv scene, applying extended techniques to the kit and treating it as a textural-melodic instrument. Blowing, bowing, scratching, playing with hands and all kinds of objects, all is valid to expand the vocabulary of this innovative percussionist. He played with improvisers, such as: Lotte Anker, Marshall Allen, Yedo Gibson, Susana Santos Silva, Kaja Draksler, Jasper Stadhouders, Mikloaj Trzaska, Martin Kuchen, Richard Barrett, Jorma Tapio, Christher Bothen, Marc Stucki, Luc Ex. etc...
He has released around 30 CDs in labels such as Cuneiform Records (USA), Altrock Records (Italy), Leo Records (UK) Discordian Records (Barcelona, Spain), Audition Records (Mexico), El Negocito Records (Belgium), Jacc Records (Portugal), Fmr Records (UK).-Vasco Trilla
