Getting lost in tiny (sound) spaces: Peter Vandenberghe (piano) and Bart Maris (trumpet) dive enthusiastically into the adventure as a duo. Working together for over 25 years in several larger formations (X-Legged Sally and Flat Earth Society, to name the most renowned) this duo presents more direct musical dialogues in ever-changing soundscapes using compositions of Maris, arrangements of Vandenberghe and improvised pieces.
The basic idea is a strictly acoustic setting, with a focus on dynamics and density - color - texture, parameters that define their music as do tonality - rhythm. Therefore, this duo is always surprising; compositions are vehicles for improvisation, sometimes creating elongated soundscapes, sometimes short and direct pieces. The CD reveals only a glimpse of the imagination of the duo.
