schraum presents its #11 this fall with a record called subsurface. Initiators of this first published musical convention are Nils Ostendorf (trumpet), Philippe Lauzier (alto saxophone, bass clarinet) and Philip Zoubek (prepared piano). These three musicians from Berlin, Cologne and Montréal experiment with the physicality of their instruments like as using them as generators for sounds and tones. With a fine sense of resonance, overtones and thanks to advanced tecniques they bring an organic and fused sound into being that, letting vibrant polyphonic textures behind, wander through landscapes of density and dynamic into valleys of silence and space where they might fall into intense backpedaling. The three different individual approaches and tecniques towards music and playing made this exciting and adventurous album possible.
