A new project bringing together three of some of the most active members of the well-known artist collective, label and promoter of creative music, Umlaut Records.
Grip and Borel, with their extensive touring as a duo, have laid a solid ground for new discoveries in the world of improvised music. And now, with the longtime playmate Gerbal – heard in collaborations like Peeping Tom and Zoor – a new trio is born in which the members voices join in an explosive and somewhat implosive choir of reflections, taking them on an undetermined journey under the name Escapade Wynton.
Gerbal, Grip and Borel are frequent collaborators with Axel Dörner, Sven-Åke Johansson, Sten Sandell, Bertrand Denzler, Raymond Strid, and have had the pleasure to play with groundbrakers as Evan Parker, Alan Silva, Joëlle Leandre, Mats Gustafsson to name a few playmates from the great reference of improvised musics.
