IN THE SEA

IN THE SEA SPRING TOUR 2018

We are currently booking a European tour from about May 21 to June 16 2018. Please contact ncaloia @ gmail . com for available dates.


Tristan Honsinger started improvising in Montreal more than forty years ago, prior to his decisive move to Europe, where he's been at the centre of improvised music activity ever since.  So this group represents an oblique sort of homecoming. Their rapport is obvious, the results a satisfying mixture of musical empathy and creative conflict.  Tristan plays with characteristic daring from his reserves of readymade tune fragments and shards of poetry and into the protean unknown that is the foundation for the best group improvising.  Josh Zubot,and Nicolas Caloia don't merely follow him there, but provoke him – and each other – in ways that are, by turns, subtle, assertive, and irreverent.  A superb encounter.

"Comprised of Honsigner compositions from their recording In the Sea, the set was tight and detailed, intelligent and playful, full of romance, the arco playing resulting in beautifully layered overtones."
CHAMBERLAIN, Mike. <<All About Jazz>>, May 26, 2017.

"The audience rose to feet in rapturous applause after a superb concert by a string trio of American cellist Tristan Honsinger, and two Canadians- violinist Joshua Zubot and bassist Nicolas Caloia." BLOCK, Irwin. <<Avant Music News>>, May 20, 2017.

<< Les artistes nous ont charmées, naviguant entre humour et mélancolie au gré des compositions évoquant tantôt le romantisme des grandes traversées, la fureur des tempêtes ou la cacophonie de l'oubli. Un bonheur en ouverture de cette deuxième journée de festival! >> DUFOUR-BEAUSÉJOUR, Sophie et DESROCHERS, Éloise Lara.
