Equilibrium: Liquid Light

Read "Liquid Light" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

This European trio's third release is abetted by Songlines Recordings' pristine audio processes, which is a vital aspect since many of these tracks are quietly penetrating in scope and designed with ethereal atmospherics. The artists' specialty may lie within an artsy, avant-garde schema via a channel of electro-acoustic tone poems, enamored by Sissel Vera Pettersen's luminous ...

Equilibrium: Liquid Light

Read "Liquid Light" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The concept of equilibrium is all about the balancing of opposing forces, actions, or influences; the music of Equilibrium is largely about the same, though some twists, focal point shifts, and ambient sound plays complicate and muddy the concept a bit. Equilibrium--a trio comprised of Belgian clarinetist Joachim Badenhorst, Danish guitarist Mikkel Ploug, ...

Benedikt Jahnel Trio: Equilibrium

Read "Equilibrium" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Un tedesco, uno spagnolo e un canadese compongono questo bel trio, che si muove su terreni magari già ampiamente sondati, ma lo fa con estremo buon gusto e assoluta padronanza della materia. La rotta di navigazione è in effetti quella classica (da una trentina d'anni in qua, almeno), un procedere - ed espandersi, e lievitare - ...

Benedikt Jahnel: Equilibrium

Read "Equilibrium" reviewed by John Kelman

He may be better known internationally to ECM fans for his participation in the pan-cultural Cyminology, but German pianist Benedikt Jahnel has been devoting just as much attention to his multinational trio featuring Spanish bassist Antonio Miguel and American drummer Owen Howard. Releasing the trio's debut in 2008 on Viennese guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel's Material Records imprint, ...

Equilibrium: Walking Voices

Read "Walking Voices" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Sissel Vera Pettersen, norvegese, pensa che la musica degli Equilibrium debba essere, né più né meno, rappresentata da un prisma. Magari bucato da un raggio bianco che si trasforma in mille colori e in cui l'ascoltatore potrà scegliere di immergersi. Forse, migliore definizione della musica del trio non si poteva dare. La cantante-sassofonista ha gironzolato con ...

Mikkel Ploug - Sissel Vera Pettersen - Joachim Badenhorst: Equilibrium

Read "Equilibrium" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Eterei ma mai algidi, arditi nel creare ambientazioni sospese e melodie intricate, ma sempre a debita distanza da ogni rischio di manierismo. Mikkel Ploug, Sissel Vera Pettersen e Joachim Badenhorst hanno dato vita a un album invernale e trasparente, un esperimento sonoro che, con quel titolo così esplicito, Equilibrium, pare occhieggiare alla natura dell'infinito. L'equilibrio in ...
