A reflection in thoughts.

The String Contingent | Artists in Residence.

Part 1
Emotions. Challenges. Overcoming obstacles.
Opening up. Opening doors to new ways of creating music: Improvisation.

Improvising while touring and developing new pieces.

Part 2
Back at Four Winds. Recording of the new album. Live in concert.
Different perspective on improvising.
More confidence. Ease. Joy.
Listening and responding to each other in a better way.
The audience contributing that certain special factor leading to focus, excitement and beautiful tension amongst the band while performing.

With the last open recording session on Saturday night all pieces have been recorded.
The last part of The String Contingent’s residency at Four Winds has come to an end.

A challenging process with pulled back curtains.

It was a very special experience being live part of this exciting process and being able to share it with you. As a last contribution, we would like to share this video clip ‘Retrospect’ – featuring the piece ‘Mountain Time’ of their new album (title pending – suggestions welcome!).
