Proyecto IMUDA is an initiative from pianist Paula Shocron and araises in 2012 from the need to investigate the relationship between music and other artistic disciplines. The purpose was to find common codes and interact in spontaneous situations. The most important element in the performances has always been the improvisation. This time the project looks for expand the Argentine artists’ horizons grouped in this research and generate a dialogue with other artists in different cities. Therefore, this time not only the fusion of different arts is proposed, but also of different cultures.

80 years Barre Phillips / 15 years Trio

Urs Leimgruber saxophone
Jacques Demierre piano
Barre Phillips double bass

Spontaneous, direct, together. Without any preparation, conferring, or plan- ning. Faced with the same challenge as on the very first day they met – sculpting sounds in an empty room. AlI these three musicians can contribute is their decades of experience in free improvisation and their own personal styles of musical expression – no more and no less.

For the past fifteen years the American double bass player Barre Phillips and the two Swiss musicians Urs Leimgruber and Jacques Demierre have been coming together to play on an irregular basis and have already chalked up something in the region of two hundred concerts.

All three have unlocked a whole new dimension of their instruments and it is this that gives them their unmistakable sound. Every time they get together, their music is simultaneously reinvented and carried forward. At that point their musical styles either become more densely interwoven or evaporate until verging on silence.
