Editing & mixing
An unusual combination: a piano player who studied classic and modern composition, a sax and clarinet player who learned to play in a band club, switched to east european music and ended up in jazz, and a minimalist electric upright bass player. They have know each other since they were teens and back then they played together in several bands (the Urge, Two Gentlemen, Masters & Johnson, Dutch Distress).
In 2015 they reunited to focus on the core of all music: communication. They play 100% improvised music, with no agreements on scales, chords, tempo or beat... It is all about listening to and interacting with each other. Breaking the silence. Slowly, cinematic, melancholy...
The complete improvisation sessions are recorded on a simple multitrack recorder, afterwards the best parts are selected and mixed.
Four albums have been released; Harbour, Industry, Home and Slow.
You can find these albums on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and other digital services, see links below (click icon to visit service)
You can book the Unheard Music Concepts trio for live performances. We play a selection of tracks from our albums live, improvised.
