Oğuz Büyükberber Trio
Meinrad Kneer - double bass
Yorgos Dimitriadis - percussion & electronics
First put together by “Soundance festival” in Berlin, then got settled as its own thing, this group became the fifth recorded iteration of Oğuz Büyükberber Trio. Three unique musicians investigate the unpredictable combinations of their personal influences and the unspoken agreements that are formed whenever those references overlap. Xenakis, Buddy de Franco, Ali Akbar Khan, Monk, Morton Subotnick... They play with the tension of going with and against those shared vocabulary, and create evolving juxtapositions. All recorded as completely improvised takes without any prior plans, their Trytone Records Release “The Power Of Movement in Plants” breaks the idiomatic conventions of this chamber music setup.
