There is still the question, if it’s possible or meaningful to conserve improvisations – that means spontaneous music – on a record. My interest is to consider the whole production of a record as an artistic process, in which improvisation of music is only one part among others.

You hear nine tracks on my cd “Rendez-vous”, eight improvisations and one composition.The recordings, which were made during a period of about half a year, were prepared by several important decisions: the focus on duos with changing partners; the choice of the musicians, who all are internationally well-remarked; the decision to record in a church, which gives a very specific sound and atmosphere to the music.

The following selection and editing of the single tracks as well as their alignment and combination makes the cd to be one formal unit.
