OUT OF THE BLUE (Paul Van Gysegem / Kim Van den Brempt)
PLATFORM (Xavier Charles / Katrine Schiøtt / Jan Martin Gismervik / Jonas Cambien) Belgian exclusive + new release

Artist Paul Van Gysegem stood at the cradle of the experimental free jazz of the seventies. As a pianist, Kim Van den Brempt is a passionate defender of the contemporary repertoire. Together they map out a route in which American minimalism is the starting point of an exciting musical jousting with space for improvisation, composition and dialogue. When two worlds meet each other, numerous possibilities arise.

Platform houses young Belgian talent Jonas Cambien (quite unknown to the public yet due to living in Scandinavia). The quartet plays acoustic, improvised music exploring slowly changing textures, elastic sonic sculptures and meditative drones. Small ideas get all the time and space they need to develop. Using prepared piano, minimalistic percussion, extended techniques on clarinet and cello, Platform creates abstract and cinematic sheets of sound. They present their latest work released on the Portuguese Cleanfeed label.
