A story, similarly as an improvisation, should give an impression of a spontaneous stream of events. A good speaker can draw his listeners into a colourful flow of events whose solution is impatiently awaited by them. “The Vortex” is our story. Entirely improvised, it guides us through stylistically diverse moments during which we give in to the attempt to create our own world. A world in which colour is the dominant forming element of our common musical language. Wandering through the internal sound landscapes of such instruments as the Buchla Music Easel synthesizer, modular synthesizer, piano or DSI Prophet 6, we accept the challenge to map these seemingly different musical lands and merge them into a single, organic whole.
All pieces are improvised, recorded on the so-called one-take.
