about

Inspired by the slow tempo and invisible motion of nature;
how the seasons pace without sudden turns, slow and gentle.
Seemingly still, yet always in motion.

BOOK OF AIR is a series of bundled compositions. This is the second chapter performed by 'VVOLK'. The music of 'VVOLK' is played by a group of 18 improvisers with roots in jazz and classical music. The group investigates performing and improvising music, in close relation to present time; what are the possibilities in playing music, when changes in this music pass by unnoticed? How do we as musicians relate to the running time of a performance? How does our hearing and memory react to these slow changes? As a result 'VVOLK' let's you experience music which is less perceived in the present time, but rather occurs in our memory of the past. This clearly challenges the improvising musicians, and makes audience and performers discover new territories in collective improvisation.
