"If the evenings of the MIA - Meeting of Improvised Music of Atouguia da Baleia are filled by performances of groups formed by lots, combining in varied ways the musicians who participate in this "sui generis" festival held every year in the middle of May in the municipality of Peniche , The evening latches are held with ensembles concerts that bring together everyone present. With a particularity: some of these musicians are given the task of conducting the broad formations according to the same principle of who plays: improvising the orchestral direction. The 2016 edition will be one in which the principles followed by Ensemble MIA (mutant collective that usually unfolds in six, to cover the total number of members - 70 last year) had better practical results, and hence the edition Of this CD with the records of these precious moments. Each of the six themes included has its conductor, namely the Austrian violinist Mia Zabelka, the German flutist Mark Alban Lotz, the French vibraphonist François Choiselat, the British clarinetist Noel Taylor, the Italian pianist Silvia Corda and the Portuguese trombonist Fernando Simões. The approaches are quite different, ranging from Walter Thompson's methods of Soundpainting applied by Choiselat in "That Gestury Glossary" to the minimal interventions, practically reduced to the management of the blows, of Lotz in "A Kind of Pseudo-Lyrical Abyss". In the middle are Butch Morris Conduction applied by Taylor in "Sobriety", perhaps the most deterministic of all although the signage is simpler than that of Thompson, and the directions of Zabelka ("Tribal Exhilaraton") and Rope (" Elegance and Intuition "), which are very direct and mainly oriented towards the coordination of timbres. On the other hand, the intervention directed by Simões ("The Rebellion of Fired Musicians") has a place apart, for having a staging and following a theatrical concept and comic effect, as well as for putting a critical question to the very idea of improvisation With maestro, that of symphonic music that overlaps the will of an individual to the collective. Fernando Simões was expelling from the stage who did not comply with his indications, causing some discomfort until he understood (not even the musicians on stage knew that this was the game) that it was a gag. In the end, only the drummer stayed. But the best was yet to come, and this time without the conductor's knowledge: the expelled improvisers who had portable instruments crowded into the back of the room and, after the last touch of the drumsticks, played again, to the general laughter of the assistance and affirmation of the Your freedom. This is how the album ends, letting us think."-REP, Jazz.pt
