A most unusual trio: actually a quartet, this Polish/Ukraine group has three strings (violin, cello, contrabass) with modular synth and electronics reinforcing their sound, less EA than chamber jazz with fascinating orchestration and wonderful harmonic and melodic invention.

sample the album:
"The title Ants, Bees and Butterflies may seem descriptive, but there are enough elements here to puzzle you. First of all, the Modular String Trio is not a trio, but a quartet. You can either accept it as an arithmetic incongruence or understand what's in stake: that there's a real string trio in this band, with a violin (Sergiy Okhrimchuck), a cello (Robert Jedrzejewski) and a double bass (Jacek Mazurkiewicz) defining the procedures, and the complement of a modular synthesizer (by Lukasz Kacperczyk), reinforcing the electroacoustic parameters introduced by Mazurkiewicz (the mentor of this project) when he electronically processes his instrument in real time. Based in Poland and Ukraine, these musicians could be from any other part of the world where the definition "chamber music of the modern day" means that improvisation can be a creative method and that the use of analog and digital technology a tool so obvious than the secular ones adopted in this recording - the bowed strings. In consequence, jazz and classical music are present in equal amounts (no wonder, considering Mazurkiewicz partnerships with the likes of Daniel Levin, Rob Brown, Waclaw Zimpel, Michael Zerang and Miya Masaoka, among others), but also bits and pieces of the East European folk traditions. The result is a marvelous equation of past and future, the kind that makes the present of creative music so intriguing."-Clean Feed
