A moody album of minimal improv, using space, innuendo, breath and a wonderful sense of darkness from the trio of Radu Malfatti (trombone), Kevin Drum (electronics) and Lucio Capece (bass clarinet & preparations), performing live at Q-O2 in Brussel, Belgium.

Malfatti / Drumm / Capece: The Volume Surrounding The Task (Potlatch)

Label: Potlatch    
Released in: France    

On January 2011, Lucio Capece, Kevin Drumm and Radu Malfatti made a tour in France, Belgium and Switzerland. This recording, made at the Brussels concert, is a unique opportunity to discover the outstanding combination of three radical approaches of minimalism in improvised music.

"The quality of light/sound can not be measured in foot candles or decibels even as practicality. This is not the major consideration for visual/auditory acuity. The quality of light/sound for work is more closely related, in the ability of the eye/ear to adjust and stay adjusted to a good level of light/ sound in the volume surrounding the task . This allows the lowering of the light/sound level and the resulting overload of the man. The subjective questions of feel (openness, intimacy, presence of color in light/ sound, field density, direction, shadow or lack, fullness) will constitute the quality of light/ sound."-Robert Irwin, Notes Toward a Conditional Art.
