sample the album:
"After the success of Coding of Evidentiality, Dre Hocevar is back-not with his trio, but with a quintet, considering the inner transformations to a quartet and again to a trio, expanding the original quest of ―Collective Effervescence‖. Cellist Lester St. Louis and pianist Bram De Looze are one more time associated with the percussionist and composer: if you're a sports fan, you know that we can't mess with a victorious team.
The electroacoustic dimension of Dre's sound world was initiated with the composition Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), through the hands of Sam Pluta. In this album, Philip White's analog electronic work and signal processing along with saxophonist Chris Pitsiokos, also known as a member of the noise-jazz combo Protean Reality, thoughtfully integrate and further develop Hocevar's innovative compositional work. So, the music grew and became wider in range, without losing detail, subtlety, and nuance. Or even intimacy: the chamber music-like ambiance keeps being the salient quality of this group.
The concept too: this is collective, interactive, empathic music and the quantity of musicians associated turn that condition, even more clear. Finally, the title of the album - the mentioned Collective Effervescence is a telling metaphor for what's happening here, considering the strong interest in the unseen vibrations of air and bodies, sometimes dense, but always dissipating in perspectives on silence, the principle, the basis and the end of all music."-Clean Feed
