The music is based on difficult structure and rich evocative musical language. The musicians succesfully blend together all the sections to one place – an independent and bright melody line, dynamic rhythmic section, synth tunes, electronics, gorgeous musical background and innovative instrumentation. Separate independent sections are contrasting to each other and create a bright, expressive and modern musical language. The music is especially expressive and emotional – the musicians are mixing up together different kinds of motions, characters and expressions. Spontaneous turns, sudden changes, strong contrasts, masterful virtuosity, invention and the ability to switch from the one mood to another without any force – that makes an effort to flexible, expressive, sensible and effective playing manner. The music moves from the darkest pieces mixed with sorrows, anger, aggression or – ambient, subtle and relaxing mood. These episodes are filled with silent pauses, deep contemplations changed by minimalistic samples, sonoristic experiments, strange timbres and turn out to outregeous, haunted, heavy and dark mood. When suddenly the music changes – it gets striking and twisting, rises on sparkling riffs and wild culminations. Here a lyrical, solemn and relaxing playing manner is changed by intense, active and moving pplaying manner with rich ornamental texture. Here expressive melodies filled with shrieky exclamations, hysteric riffs, passionate flowing passages, intense, nervous and complicated rhythms, monotonous sessions are rising to luminous culminations, booming sessions, wild perturbations, radiant breaking riffs and scandalous pieces. The music is played in active, dynamic and expressive playing manner – different kinds of instruments are brought together. All music is based on huge stylistic variety – spontaneous free improvisation is integrated in already arranged contemporary academical music, astonishing and evocative experimental music, synthetic and modern electronics and innovations of academic avant-garde. Here meets an unconventional andevocative contemporary academical, experimental and electroacoustic music and abstract, moving and spontaneous improvisation. An innovative and bright instrumentation is created – it’s based on home-made, strange, experimental and extended playing techniques, rare and exotic instrumental combos, modern innovations, fusion of acoustics and electronics, and ornaments, abbreviations and textures of all kinds. That finally makes an inspiring, evocative and bright sound.
