sample the album:
"This disc focused on the openness of a music improvisation workshop that Strale and artist Philippe Legris founded in the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels in 1976. They wanted it to be open to everyone wishing to discover sounds, self-expression and collective improvisation without any rules and scores. This workshop was held together with a monthly concert featuring the who's who of the then burgeoning scene of improvised music. It has continued since then, and is still at the core process of all the music of CARDO."-Jean-Michel Van Schouwburg
