A Voyage of Eccentric Musical Improvisations

The Beginnings

Four musical friends (Eugene, Bernie, Axel, Nowick) embarked on a journey of pure improvisation, channeling the music they've absorbed over the years. They were soon joined by other great musical friends and partners to create new soundscapes and dance-shapes

The Philosophy

Improvisation is unpredictable, it comes with great challenges but rewards us with blissful moments. "Each moment is different, each moment is familiar, each moment is unusual, each moment is unpredictable, each moment is uncovered, each moment is new '.
