OBLIQ is a sonic mass in constant movement. Observing the characteristics of sound in every detail, it moves in an abstract organic way, formed by three musicians on acoustic instruments in free improvisation. Solistic passages are restrained in favour of a complex interlocking group structure.
Working with a tendency towards rather quiet material opens a dynamic sprectrum with a large
potential for differentiation.
Coming from the Berlin scene of experimental music, the trio have toured varoius European countries and collaborated with artists like Christof Kurzmann (LP live at umlaut festival 2010), Michael Thieke and Miya Masaoka.
