"The freedom of the moment is fundamental in free improvisation; a new universe is created each moment, one where things can occur in a cause and effect chain. But our thoughts, like our improvisations, need not follow a logical order. In this sense, improvisation has more of a likeness with the real world than does written music, in which interruptions of "reality" are suppressed. In improvised music, unintended occurrences have to be accepted and treated as something important. We cannot exclude them. Improvisation does not exist the moment before it occurs, and when the sound fades away, no historical points of reference are left. Recordings of improvisations are essentially empty, and at best conserve the form. They are unable to transmit the sense of time or space or of the natural context, which for an improvising musician is like a score. They are simply documents, from and for the memory. By living the present with the greatest possible intensity we not only accept our historical context, but we live the circumstances of the moment to the maximum."-Chefa Alonso, from the liner notes



"My story is quite simple, I was living in São Paulo (Brazil) a big city with 21.000.000 people and a incredible concrete jungle and it happen to be playing music too, after many years playing Brazilian music, free improvisation started to take place in my music.

Waking up and sleeping with this constant noise that this huge city makes it was inevitable to not have it on my music. As any 3rd world citizen I had to improvise every day and that is what happen to my "forró" (Brasilian music from the north east), became more and more full of noises and freer in the form and content.

So in 2005 after recording "Abaetetuba" and "Contra Mão" I thought that it was time to leave São Paulo and meet some other improvisers around the world. Now I am based in Amsterdam but have been for two years in London where I spent most of my time making music with some amazing musicians as Marcio Mattos, Veryan Weston, John Edwards, Steve Noble, Mark Sanders and also was part of the London Improvisers Orchestra together with Lol Coxhill and Evan Parker between other great musicians from the London free improv scene, that was to me a great school.

This orchestra has inspired me to start the Royal Improvisers Orchestra (RIO) in Holland and it has been playing since 2006, with 20 musicians from all over the world and from completely individual angels of music with musicians from Baroque to Punk Noise but with the same passion for the improvisation.

Here in Holland, beside my fix groups RIO, Caetitu, Abaetetuba and EkE, I have also been playing with some great musicians that I have learned a lot from as Han Bennink, Michael Vatcher, Luc Ex, Marcos Baggiani, Ab Baars, Cor Fuhler and other ZAAL100 (our free improv place in Amsterdam) friends."
