Halmstad , Sweden.
Having a great time working with the largest ensemble i can recall. . .there are 12 of us. . .sometimes all on stage together!!
We are Thraking and Vrooming and Ba Booming and Absinthing and much much more!
The drumming is led by Kjell Severinsson on trap kit and Klas Assarsson on orchestral percussion ala Jamie Muir.
In the past few days we have prepared lots of material but of course the random improvisation is what I am most looking forward too. As we learned each other material this week i found the Italians , The Metamorfosi Trio, only improvise. . .this is not exactly accurate since they are amazing sight readers and are playing some ridiculous charts put in front of them. Check here for more info and following the links to the blogs of Thomas for fotos.
