Franz Hautzinger / Julo Fujak / Zsolt Sörés: Live in Brussels This meeting of three distinct European sound sculptors—Austrian Franz Hautzinger on quarter-tone trumpet, Slovakian Julo Fujak on prepared piano, bowed bass guitar and objects, and Hungarian Zsolt Sörés on viola and electronics—was recorded live at Studio Odeon 120 in Brussels in November 2011. It features this occasional trio searching for fresh, intuitive codes of making music.

The highly original manners of producing and shaping sounds of these three musicians and their different conceptions of time, space and pulse demands a sensitive, immediate and precise approach in order to structure coherent sonic frameworks. Obviously, the three are experienced in non-idiomatic improvised meetings, but in this meeting the term non-idiomatic means much more. Not only that the nature of the music of this trio is not auto-referential by its own very essence, but it consciously does not suggest new sonic language. It is dictated by the fleeting sonic events of any given moment, and then it is gone.

Hautzinger, Fujak and Sörés structure patiently the expressionist and poetic sonic events, contextualizing these events in nuanced textures, leaving aside any attempt to lock these spontaneous events in any conventional syntactic rules. Still, as this live meeting develops, the interaction becomes more intimate, imaginative and profound. It is marked by delicate and spare, almost transparent sounds that enlighten the shared direction. When the trio begins its third and last 21-minute improvisation, the immediate flow of new, singular sounds and ideas is already organic, and pulsates and embraces the different approaches, and even amplifies the sonic differences.

Highly original, poetic sound-based free improvisation.

Track Listing: Part I; Part II; Part III.

Personnel: Franz Hautzinger: quarter-tone trumpet; Julo Fujak: semi-prepared piano, bowed bass guitar, sonic objects; Zsolt Sörés: viola, live electronics.

Year Released: 2014 | Record Label: Hevhetia
