Magda Mayas - Piano
Heddy Boubaker - Analogic modular synth
Clayton Thomas - Doublebass

From improvised music the closest in spirit of the most advanced researchs in electro acoustic to the most furious, "punky", expressive even lyrical free music, through performing arts, Heddy Boubaker's areas of expression, in sound improvisation field, are vast and constantly surprising and poetic and "inhabited".

The french former saxophone player Heddy Boubaker invites Magda Mayas and Clayton Thomas, 2 of his favorite berlin based improvisers, to musically meet again. They played together a long time ago in Beyrouth and Berlin, but Heddy was then still playing the saxophone. This time Heddy will be playing analogic modular synth.

Vojtech Prochazka - piano, organ, synths, electronics
Adrian Myhr - electric bass
Tore Sandbakken - drums, percussions

Bergljot experiments with a strict and minimalist approach of very slow development with special focus on richness of sound, reminiscent of The Necks, sunn o))), Concern or Barn Owl. They are using a toy synth, various electric organs, field recordings and found sounds as well as Max/ppooll in their music. The trio plays energetic and loud, but always with clear ideas.

The band has received great reviews and has played on festivals such as Jazz Fest Brno, Natt Jazz Bergen, Koktebel Jazz Festival and Jazzinec Trutnov as well as venues in France, Sweden, Poland, Ukraine, Austria Germany, Slovakia, Norway and Czech Republic.

"The piano sounds like harp, toy, marimba, machine .... the spirit of John Cage was definitely somewhere near the place. The trio engages in dialogue that is beyond any genre of music, beyond most traditional views on what is called music actually." - (Free) Jazz Alchemist Blog.
