"If the evenings of the MIA - Meeting of Improvised Music of Atouguia da Baleia are filled by performances of groups formed by lots, combining in varied ways the musicians who participate in this "sui generis" festival held every year in the middle of May in the municipality of Peniche , The evening latches are held with ensembles concerts that bring together everyone present. With a particularity: some of these musicians are given the task of conducting the broad formations according to the same principle of who plays: improvising the orchestral direction. The 2016 edition will be one in which the principles followed by Ensemble MIA (mutant collective that usually unfolds in six, to cover the total number of members - 70 last year) had better practical results, and hence the edition Of this CD with the records of these precious moments. Each of the six themes included has its conductor, namely the Austrian violinist Mia Zabelka, the German flutist Mark Alban Lotz, the French vibraphonist François Choiselat, the British clarinetist Noel Taylor, the Italian pianist Silvia Corda and the Portuguese trombonist Fernando Simões. The approaches are quite different, ranging from Walter Thompson's methods of Soundpainting applied by Choiselat in "That Gestury Glossary" to the minimal interventions, practically reduced to the management of the blows, of Lotz in "A Kind of Pseudo-Lyrical Abyss". In the middle are Butch Morris Conduction applied by Taylor in "Sobriety", perhaps the most deterministic of all although the signage is simpler than that of Thompson, and the directions of Zabelka ("Tribal Exhilaraton") and Rope (" Elegance and Intuition "), which are very direct and mainly oriented towards the coordination of timbres. On the other hand, the intervention directed by Simões ("The Rebellion of Fired Musicians") has a place apart, for having a staging and following a theatrical concept and comic effect, as well as for putting a critical question to the very idea of improvisation With maestro, that of symphonic music that overlaps the will of an individual to the collective. Fernando Simões was expelling from the stage who did not comply with his indications, causing some discomfort until he understood (not even the musicians on stage knew that this was the game) that it was a gag. In the end, only the drummer stayed. But the best was yet to come, and this time without the conductor's knowledge: the expelled improvisers who had portable instruments crowded into the back of the room and, after the last touch of the drumsticks, played again, to the general laughter of the assistance and affirmation of the Your freedom. This is how the album ends, letting us think."-REP, Jazz.pt

Joao Madeira: "I was born in Lisboa and I've dedicated most of my energy to the doublebass since I was 12. When I went to study at the Conservatório de Lisboa my role model was doublebassist João Panta Nunes, and lately my studies were oriented by Jorge Lee, at Cascais. I have a degree in Musicology, investigation work on Fado's candidature to World Immaterial Heritage by UNESCO, and coordination of the Music Department at INATEL/FNAT. Since 1999 I have a strong activity (studio and performance) in several styles and genres, but improvised music and original composition (whatever the style...) are the places where my musical language riches its higher satisfaction and plenitude. In the recordings you are about to hear it's me who plays all the instruments. My passion is at the simple act of artistic creation. For me, music is all about musicians and genuine expression! It doesn't matter the genre neither the instrument per si. In theater I have collaborations (musician, composer, actor) with Companhia do Chapitô and Artistas Unidos, amongst others. I also love books (...) I've studied aesthetics and Portuguese literature since I remember, and love to read and write poetry."

"Karoline Leblanc was born in 1975 in Rimouski, Quebec (Canada) and from the age of 5 she started to destroy her parents' piano. From 1983 to 1997 she studies violin, harpsichord, organ, Ondes Martenot, analysis and music theory at the Conservatories of Rimouski, Quebec and Montreal. She continues her canvas for two years at Concordia University in the advanced music performance program, and benefits from workshops with Ton Koopman, Arthur Haas, Bob Van Asperen, Hendrick Bouman, Jean-Patrice Brosse, Kenneth Gilbert, Pierre Hantai and Skip Sempe. In 1997, she wins the second prize, in duo with Olivier Fortin, at the international competition of the Festival Van Vlaanderen, Belgium. She has performed solo and in ensembles in places like the Massey Hall in Toronto, Salle Pierre-Mercure in Montreal and Provinciaal Hof in Bruggen. Captivated early on by contemporary classical music, she played many world premieres by Canadian composers. She received grants from the McAbbie foundation, Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, Beaulieu-Langis foundation and Festival du Comminges, that gave her the opportunity to deepen the early and the contemporary music repertoires. Since 1998, through intuiti personae sound meetings with improvisors, with traditional free jazz as starting point, she's searching for new reactions and expressions in open forms fully devoting herself to the unconstrained, favoring the piano as her main instrument but also developing her take on various electronic instruments and percussions."

"Luiz Rocha: I play the clarinet and bass clarinet mostly in free improvisation, new music, contemporary, avant-garde infused, post-bla-bla-bla ensembles.

Brazilian, based in Barcelona, where I'm a close collaborator with Discordian Records.

Around four times a year I switch to Japanese mode and shoot loads of pictures. For me, photography is much less intimate a process than music; it's an external exploration.

Anyway, the process is alike for both: awareness, improvisation, technique; the act is driven by pure impulse and/or by observing and carefully composing."

"Mia Zabelka is a sound artist, violinist and vocalist from Vienna, who creates hauntingly sensual music and is regarded as one of the leading 21st century proponents of what is known as experimental violin music. Mia Zabelka's projects show her exceptional mastery and a deep understanding of the violin, be it acoustic or electric, solo or as part of a collective. In her hands the boundaries of this instrument fade and paths to uncharted sonic territory open, as she bends genres, the conventional use of electronics and the human voice to expand the spectrum for her to paint her musical language in. Live in concert Mia Zabelka is an electrifying performer. In any context, she has the uncanny knack of commanding the stage and always being the centre of an audience's attention, achieved by the intensity and focus of her performances, rather than any gratuitous showmanship.

At the age of seven, Mia Zabelka discovered the violin. She was eager to find out how this musical object could produce interesting sounds when touched with a wooded stick strung with horsehair. Zabelka was already able to play works by the fabled virtuoso Nicolo Paganini in her first year of instruction on the instrument and at 12 was the youngest member of the Austrian Youth Orchestra. During her classical training with Alexander Arenkov, an assistant of David Oistrach, at the Vienna Conservatory of Music, she already began to play with various jazz and rock bands. With her inborn curiosity for the new and all that was unexpected Mia Zabelka then turned to the study of electroacoustic music at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna , creating a foundation on the basis of which she continues to construct and explore the limits of sound and music in a language entirely her own. She has now developed a unique language based on the de- and reconstruction of the violin's sonic possibilities for over 20 years, expanding the range of the instrument using live electronic devices, preparing it through the insertion of alien objects between or on the strings and innovative performance techniques. Mia Zabelka describes this process as Automatic Playing, continuously exploring sound and music as physical phenomena, always pushing back the boundaries in experimental performances and compositions that question established notions, improving the available techniques and given structures.

Her openness to the most varied musical directions and eclectic artistic influences have resulted in collaborations with numerous prominent international artists including John Zorn, David Moss, Pauline Oliveros, Elliott Sharp, Dälek, Audrey Chen, Maria Chavez, Robin Rimbaud aka Scanner, Lydia Lunch and Electric Indigo among many others. She has been the artistic director of phonofemme Vienna, an international festival of female experimental music and sound art, since 2009. In 2007 Mia Zabelka founded the Klanghaus, a center for sound and interdisciplinary art at her house in southern Styria/Austria. The Klanghaus is a meeting point for international and local artists and hosts the Klang.Zeit festival four times a year."

"Portuguese-born Paulo Chagas is a wilfully eclectic musician, having devoted much of his career to experimentalism. Being by nature a maverick, he has committed his life to the research of new (or renewed) solutions and links between the sounds he explores. Paulo is a dedicated composer, multi-instrumentalist (woodwinds, electronics), teacher, writer and music promoter. He is actively involved with Zpoluras Archives, a music label committed to various branches of contemporary improvised music and to working in partnership with musicians from all parts of the world, and MIA (Encontro de Música Improvisada de Atouguia da Baleia), which plays an essential role within the Portuguese improvisation circuit.

Paulo has a Classical Music background. He studied oboe, composition, acoustics and music history at the National Conservatory of Lisbon (1980-1985), where he joined Orchestra and Chamber Music groups. He has degrees in Special Education, Pedagogy of Music Education, and Music Therapy. He subsequently devoted himself to jazz, studying with saxophonists David Binney and Perico Sambeat. From his earliest years as a musician, Paulo has had a broad interest in all musical forms, from folk, pop and rock, through jazz, fusion, improvised music, and classical.

He has composed, performed and produced music for theater, film, and for educational purposes. He regularly performs and records with an ever-widening range of musicians and collectives, such as P.R.E.C., Variable Geometry Orchestra, Chagas Curado Viegas Wind Trio, Palimpsest Trio, Peixe Frito, Tania Giannouli, Fernando Guiomar and many others. He develops also a soloist career, having covered countries like France, Spain, Italy, Austria, Turkey, Brasil, both to play and to teach workshops and masterclasses.

Describing himself as a "music addict", Paulo is an avid performer, keen to experiment, record, perform, and to do whatever is necessary to further the cause of music. For him, music is an Art form that is intimately linked with the ongoing search for the meaning of life."
