Live at The BIM
Label: Red Note
Released in: Netherlands
"EKE takes off from free improvisation. This method - in which creative process and sound-result coincide - comes as a thrilling on the edge experience for both the audience and the performers. While improvising the players take responsibility for their own voice in the counterpoint relying on their highly individual musical languages that are sharply tuned to one another through playing together intensively. The result is a fresh instant compositions with great contrast in length, dynamics and texture. Aware of contemporary conceptions EKE focuses on reshaping free improvisation using elements of noise, jazz, 20th century composed music and punk. The result is a dynamic forward-moving audio experience.
The three band members met in Amsterdam and played together in September 2007 for the first time. From the first moment it was obvious that this was not a one-night-stand. The flexible trio-setting felt right and musical universes expanded. EKE has been playing and developing amongst others by collaborating with the Boucalee Ensemble, bassist Raoul van der Weide and Gibson's Royal Improviser's Orchestra. Concerts at Bimhuis Amsterdam, Utrecht Jazz Festival, Doek Festival and Loft Cologne (Germany) followed. Their debut CD will consist the best moments of different live concerts and will be presented during their official CD presentation tour through Brazil."-EKE MySpace page
