This CD has 77 minutes of 100% improvisation. No spoken words were used. This recording Improvisations in Holland, was made in the village of Reusel, Holland.
It''s recorded by the drummer/vibraphonist/sound engineer Ted Masseurs.
Bram was just going to Ted to record something, as he was having some great microphones and recording-set at that https://www.tradebit.com idea was just to have fun.
We just started to play, without worrying about chord progressions or other appointments. No spoken words were used. Bram took the result home, and started mixing it,
and putting effects. No overdubs were used (exept on track 1), so it''s all really about those 2 evenings were it was recorded.
So, on this cd you will experience a result of music made for fun, without any idea of selling it. We had a lot of nice experiences making this music, and you''re definitely getting them too.
