"The most recent one is with Ernesto Rodrigues (viola), Luisa Goncalves (piano) and Joana Sa (soprano saxophone). The music was recorded on June 1 2021, in Lisbon, so hot of the press, I should think. I am not sure here, maybe because I have no idea how these things work, but I think this piece is at the crossroads of improvisation and composition. That is how it sounds to me. The musicians repeated specific phrases and ideas repeated throughout the fifty-five minutes of this and each time in a slightly different configuration. Sometimes a bit faster, slower, with one of the players having a little more dominant role in that segment, but in following general guidelines, I might be wrong, of course here, and this is the work of total free improvisation. Each player chooses to execute their part in this piece while maintaining the overall idea is elegance. There is not a lot in here that is very chaotic or abrasive, weird or strange. On the contrary, I detected a specific gentle approach in this piece, and with each of the instruments sounding as intended. Except for Santos, I found it hard to figure out what he was doing, but I am sure he's in there." Franz de Waard - Vital Weekly
