sample the album:
"When the concert of this live recording was announced in Lisbon, it was with some surprise. The backgrounds, references and styles of the Portuguese guitarist Luiis Lopes and the French alto saxophonist (and church organist, and electro-acoustic manipulator) Jean-Luc Guionnet couldn't be more different.
Lopes is known for his free improvised settings, his noise solo blastings and the open jazz, but tinted with rock, he plays with Humanization 4tet and the Lisbon-Berlin Trio. The roots of this musician from Lisbon are in blues, rock, jazz and, yes, punk.
Guionnet goes from the free jazz revival of The Fish to experimental free improv (Propagations, Hubub) and musique concrete (for instance, with Eric La Casa and Seijiro Murayama).
Here, we hear them finding uncommon grounds, and sure they manage to do it in a surprising, wonderful way. More than trying to adapt to each other, they create something else with the different materials provided. That's what to improvise is all about and this is indeed a lesson to follow."-Clean Feed
