arbitify TOC is one of my favorite groups, they play a version of free jazz which is at once textural and energetic. Their music is anchored by the subtle percussion work of Peter Orins who does such fine work for Satoko Fujii's band Kaze.

Here the band TOC is augmented by Sakina Abdou and Barbara Dang to give a richer sound while still maintaining the style of TOC. This album is an absolute success and I have no doubt will be on my favorites list at year end.

about

Based on an initial idea by Gordon Pym (or was it Klaxon?), and taking advantage of the temporary presence of a second piano at la malterie, two trios came together in late 2020 to create a quintet...

The acoustic version of Toc (see Qeqertarsuatsiaat - Circum-Disc 2015) takes on the energy and electricity of the original trio, exploring soundscapes full of freedom. The trio Abdou/Dang/Orins (see Lescence / Gmatique - Circum-Disc 2020) plays the organic and the infinitely small.

On December 15, 2020, we were waiting for the reopening of cultural venues in France after a complicated year. The meeting, unprecedented, of the five musicians was to be done in public, finally it takes place without, but microphones are set. A first, without instructions, we record, we will see what happens...

Minimal music and under tension, the five explore their instruments, and are surprised by their interactions. With distance and irony on a degraded period, on its language and its codes, Adoct plays the apnea, with a recording where the time is stretched, elastic, in suspension.

Lyrical surges or suspended trances, we find the humid and vegetal atmospheres: urban or sylvan crossings, reliefs and textures, harmonic coincidences. The same thirst for play and for collective, to resist the inessential forced withdrawal of the moment.
