descriptions, reviews, &c.

"French-Japanese violist Frantz Loriot use to keep a little notebook with him, in which he writes all the musical ideas coming to his mind. One day, he noticed there was sufficient material to work with. He had a conversation with Swiss arranger and composer for big bands Manuel Perovic and the decision of founding an ensemble capable to play jazz with the pop song format and an experimental approach was made. And here it is the Notebook Large Ensemble, formed by musicians of five different countries with very distinct backgrounds.

Why the combination of multiple genres and styles, you may ask. Well, why not? Even Iannis Xenakis said that putting boundaries between music idioms "makes no sense". Himself with a long experience in orchestras (lead by David S. Ware, Anthony Braxton, Barre Phillips, Joelle Léandre, Joachim Badenhorst, Pascal Niggenkemper and others), Loriot wanted to explore two old, but also always new, challenges: how to improvise when there's a large number of musicians involved (10 in this case), and how to write and arrange music for improvisers? The answers are in "Urban Furrow" and they're much, much more than convincing..."-Clean Feed

"French-Japanese violist Frantz Loriot performs solo as well as in various ensembles by way of improvisation and electronics, crossroads of different musical genres: improvised music, experimental, rock, contemporary music and electronics. He has contributed to multidisciplinary projects related to dance, image and poetry.

Frantz Loriot leads two large ensembles, the European Notebook Large Ensemble, a 10 piece ensemble with Swiss, Japanese, Belgian and Italian musicians with which he released "Urban Furrow" on the Portuguese label Clean Feed (July 2015) and the NYC based 12 piece Systematic Distortion Orchestra in which Frantz reunites some of the finest NYC based improvisers and with which he released "The Assembly" on the NYC based label NowOut recordings.

Beside these projects, Frantz released his debut solo recording "Reflections on an Introspective Path" on the NYC based label Neither/Nor.

"Joachim Badenhorst (°1981 Antwerp) has been active in the experimental and improvised music scene in Europe and abroad for the past 15 years. Following his master degree in jazz studies at the Royal Conservatory of the Hague, he has since divided his time between Belgium and cities in the US and Europe, collaborating and recording with jazz and experimental music ensembles and artists, such as Han Bennink, Tony Malaby and Noël Akchoté while incessantly exploring the visceral elements of sound. His output ranges from solo improvisation to leading large formations, such as his own Carate Urio Orchestra.

Badenhorst is artistically interested in integrating ideas from various different art medias into his musical compositions. He also takes deep interest in revealing the inherent relation between contemporary and traditional musics, having collaborated with traditional musicians from Turkey and Japan, and toured in China with reinterpreted traditional Chinese music.

In recent years, Badenhorst is contemplating the evanescent site specificity of sound as well as the relation between space and sound. In recent years, his work has taken a deeper focus on composition, namely that of computer­based composition and processing. Through continual research and experiment, he delves into a re­imagination of the boundaries between improvisation and composition, of abstract sound explorations and harmonic passage, and continues to attempt at a personal aesthetic language that interact with spaces and engage with different audiences.

Badenhorst appears on over 50 cd's on over 10 record labels. In 2012, he launched his own label KLEIN, as a creative platform to initiate collaborations, experiment and play with unconventional design, and as an outlet for fringe musical projects.

Since 2010 Badenhorst has been developing his solo programme consisting of improvisations and compositions for solo acoustic and electro­acoustic wind instruments."
