descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Ten years ago Michel Wintsch (piano, synthesizer), Christian Weber (bass) and Christian Wolfarth (drums) met - 3 musicians who have not only shaped the European scene of improvisation in the most different formations but who also catch an ear with the maybe most relevant aspect in music whatsoever: SOUND.

Wintsch, Weber and Wolfarth make music with a breathtaking mental vigor. The long time working band has left all clichées far behind making you forget that in fact they are a piano trio. Where in their early years the band has stretched the boundaries of a piano trio they manage today to bring them down altogether."-Monotype

"...One rare exception was the concert of the Helvetian triumvirate WWW with the Geneva based Michel Wintsch (Piano, Synthesizer), as well as Christian Weber (Bass) and Christian Wolfarth (drums) from Zurich. The clairaudient W-men created without bustle out of the moment magic mysterious Instant Compositions. Near grooves crystalizing from noises, melodic figures dissolving into atmospheric clouds of sound... and all along one could sense a high degree of intuitional logic. What's more, these misfits value the ensemble higher than their ego".-Tom Gsteiger, Basler Zeitung (27. August 2012)

"... Musicians open to different traditions and tendencies came off best in Willisau, those who try to adopt a variety of influences in working bands - way beyond mere quotation or alienation. The trio WWW with Michel Wintsch at the piano, Christian Weber at the bass and Christian Wolfarth at the drums cultivates the freedom of improvisation in its purest form as it were. Yet their phrases and interjections often come across as precise, true statements. More than that, they master their instruments and their respective sounds: on stage they do not act like they were sound explorers or tinkerers, they act as sound experts, commanding stylistic nuances as good as electronic alienation effects."-Ueli Bernays, Neue Zürcher Zeitung (28. August 2012)
