These three musicians can masterfully combine different music styles, expressions and other elements in one composition. Their improvising has glamorous and effective sound with many interesting and innovative musical decisions and sound experiments. The musicians as a trio are improvising for the first time – they try to combine many different styles and expressive improvising. Each of them has an individual music style, interesting and unique improvising and sound. Musicians had been improvising with many other world famous jazz and noise, classical, theater, avant-garde musicians. Keir Neuringer is also best known for his long form solo improvisation with especially intensive physical saxophone technique.

Album has 5 compositions. All of them are based on synthesis between avant-garde and various experimental music genres. The collective improvisations have effective, contrastic, expressive, calm or very noisy sound which is always changing. Long saxophone solos full of different playing techniques and unheard timbres, expressive and virtuosic melodies which turns out to melodic and soft solos, dynamic drum rolls or very monotonic rhythmic, evocative and interesting bass melodies – these elements are the main basement of these compositions. The sound of the compositions is very interesting – noisy and loud turns into calm and soft and then suddenly it can be very dramatic and expressive. he musicians try out very high variety of musical expressions and innovative playing techniques which get instrument expanded from the comfort zone and reveal a new and original sound. High variety of peculiar timbres, singular sounds is heard very much in these compositions and it also effects the sound. Each musician is improvising different from each other – individual and full of contrasts melodies creatively and masterfully are connected in one composition. Because of inventive and modern improvising this album has original and effective sound.
