sample the album:
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.

"Radu Malfatti is an Austrian trombone player and composer. He was born in Innsbruck, in the province of Tyrol, on December 16, 1943. He has been described as "among the leaders in redefining the avant-garde as truly on-the-edge art." His work "since the early nineties... has been investigating the edges of ultraminimalism in both his composed and improvised work." He also operates B-Boim, a CD-R only record label focusing on improvised and composed music, much of it his own."-Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radu_Malfatti)
