Info for Serpentines
The septet’s music weaves together Ingrid Laubrock‘s compositions with improvisation and live processing, often in multiple simultaneous layers.The four compositions in the form an imaginative and evocative piece that straddles the boundaries of improvisation, new music and avant-jazz.
Ingrid Laubrock Septet consists of New York City-based musicians who have all made a huge impact as composers, performers and improvisers in their own right. It’s a cast of innovative performers who are specialized in experimental music and constantly look for fresh avenues to create truly new music.
After relocating to Brooklyn in 2008 Ingrid Laubrock soon became a creative epicentre in the New York jazz scene, and is now one of the most significant voices in contemporary jazz. The new album 'Serpentines' fits in Laubrock’s musical cosmos, in which improvisational furore and compositional rigour, calculation and freedom, are intermingled. Laubrock grounded this formation with the unusual line-up having been given a carte blanche for the 2015 Vision Festival.
Florian Keller writes in the liner notes: "If we take the title’s suggestion and use snake paths as graphs for the movement of this music, various distinctive characteristics can be determined. Via the crafty compositional and improvisational about-turns, the music spirals upwards, peaking in airy flights. Changes of direction, and rhythmic, melodic turning points drive the music on, and release dramatic potential."
