‘Life As Sounds’

‘Once in a while an artist comes along who – even by the standard of a culture that constantly emphasizes the virtues of cross genre sensibilities – brings something new to the modern music lexicon.’ Marquix Global International

Life as Sounds explores the complex relationship between how we travel through the unexpected and draw parallels between both opposite and extreme points of view. The music reflects the ‘calm’ with the ‘frantic’, ‘stillness’ with ‘agitation’ and the ‘spiritual’ with the ‘physical’.

The musical structures borrow from minimal landscapes, song based elements and deep infused grooves, over which a beautiful and slightly uneasy overlaid harmonic progression transgress with nuances of distinctive jagged jazz prisms. The compositions reflect a ‘cross current’ of musical genres that defy definition, interspersed with thick keyboard harmonic layering and interwoven with rich melodies.

After a sold out performance from last year’s ‘Enigma’ concert, ‘Life as Sounds’ presents new works that will debut at this concert. Adding to the experience, a stunning visual display will bring together an added dimension to the performance.

MAY 8th. PARIS CAT A melting pot of Cuban jazz, l totally enjoyed the hot atmosphere of The Impromptu Quartet. Performing in modal and trad styles,it really added to the occasion. Conrad Henderson on bass was magnificent.
