ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The music reminds me of a controlled explosion, yet this is an explosion that does not destroy anything at all but, on the contrary, creates one of the most astonishing musical worlds I've heard recently! Marvelously paradoxical: it manages to be coherent, spontaneous and well thought-out yet at the same time, it is completely improvised. This is the artistic statement of a group of excellent musicians and mature artists and I recommend it to anyone in love with the free side of jazz, music and...life!"

Maciej Nowotny - RadioJAZZ.FM

This is the third CD from Splatter. The collaboration with Rafal Mazur began back in 2010 when they played together in Krakow. Subsequently Rafal Mazur visited London to play at Café Oto in an evening of 'Experimental Music from Poland' in which Splatter played with him to a capacity audience. The success of this evening led them to consider making a recording. This CD is the result.

Rafal Mazur is passionate about improvisation, which he links to his studies in Daoist philosophy, so it was decided that 'cloudseed' would not include any written or pre-prepared material. Most of the CD was recorded in a single session over one day. The group were amazed at how fluently each piece emerged, and how naturally Rafal Mazur seemed to blend his playing into the Splatter style. Each track seemed to move and develop according to some internal logic of its own, not perhaps the result of some mystic moment of synthesis so much as the outcome of highly focused efforts to understand each other's musical sensibilities.

The title - 'cloudseed' - reflects this outpouring, the result of adding one extra ingredient to produce no mere splattering of creative rain but a veritable downpour.

Cloudseed

Forze in equilibrio
A space between opposed forces. This work calls forth a refrain in me as a listener: I have to arrest myself till the last sound to don't break the perfect equilibrium the musicians created. Tommaso Vespo
