“This sonic photo was taken in March 2023 in Parede, a town near Lisbon. Carlos Zingaro, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Florian Stoffner and Joao Madeira met there for a so-called first meeting.
Each of these four musicians, who span three generations, have acquired their own musical language over the years.
Each is very much with himself and yet one hundred percent with the others.
Here they do not search, but constantly find and immediately develop further what they have found.
The listener almost has the feeling that left and right, above and below are always present at the same time.

Connection happens here before the sound. This kind of interplay makes the listener perceive the music as if he were listening through a microscope.
Although there is a lot going on here, you never get the feeling that you are losing sight of the big picture.
Here, a lot of things happen at the same time for different reasons, but never by chance.”
