«A fine example of very concentrated and inspired improvisations, full of subtleties.»

Denley, Lauzier, Martel, Myhr and Normand participated on the Victo Festival 2010. Tour de Bras invited them for a session just after the festival was closed. Kim Myhr is from Norway, Jim Denley from Australia. The other three artist come from Quebec where it all took place. All five of them participated on the Victo Festival 2010. Jim Denley is the veteran improvisor in this combination known for his extended techniques on wind instruments. But on this recording it is not only Denley who makes use of extended techniques. All of them do. This makes it difficult to detect what comes from what instrument. One may experience this as an disadvantage, but it also has an advantage. It puts the music on its own feet. It is purely the music and sounds one experiences. For sure a very satisfying experience in this case. A fine example of very concentrated and inspired improvisations, full of subtleties.
