This meeting of German and Canadian musicality is one of the most important factors with this two year old improv trio; sonic densities and vast cold silences are juxtaposed to bring architectural like structural integrity to their improvisations. Population and solitude, traffic jams and back country ways, amplification and quietness, acoustic
and electric, exploratory and communication, and of course conversations with the many different guests make this hotel one of the most exciting musical experiences of recent past. dont miss this show. they will be releasing a cd of hotelmusic in the fall.
