Trio existing since 2014, it consists of three major figures of the Swiss improvised music scene. Koch, Kocher & Badrutt brilliantly achieve to play a subtle electro-acoustic improvised music, blending acoustic sources and electronics on a surprising way to create a music full of unpredictable events and of particular beauty. Archytas Curve is their second release.

It seems to come from a finely tuned interactive understanding, one that makes me think of the Jimmy Giuffre Trio of the early sixties, but with a different arsenal of shapes and textures. Similar reverence for held sounds, extremes of register, brilliant action that ends with a stuck landing. […]
