LORI FREEDMAN presents a transatlantic free improvisation quintet that features acoustic and electronic instruments, impetuosity and patience, spontaneity and deep listening.
Canada’s Grand Dame of the bass clarinet hand-picked musicians for a residency in Berlin in 2019. Her group is bringing back to Victoriaville two first-rate improvisers who love to add electronics to their sound palette: German trumpet player AXEL DÖRNER (last seen in 2011 with the Ig Henneman Sextet) and American accordionist ANDREA PARKINS (in 2006 with Nels Cline and Tom Rainey). And we will also discover two gifted musicians who have never played at FIMAV yet: bassist CHRISTOPHER A. WILLIAMS, an American based in Austria, and the Greece-born, Berlin-based drummer YORGOS DIMITRIADIS.
This ensemble, « BeingFive », gave its first concert in October 2019 before falling into a forced hiatus due to the pandemic. Its debut album came out on Relative Pitch Records last November and suggests that we will be treated to that kind of demanding yet oh-so satisfying concerts we love so much at FIMAV.
