Pierre and Joel are both heard in the creative music scenes in Europe at large as well as in North America and Asia. As highly active members of the Umlaut Records collective their focused and individual artistic expressions – as soloists, or group members of small and big ensembles as Peeping Tom, Obliq, SNUS, Pierre Borel Septet, a.o. – are amplified through new means of artist-run organizational work.  They are also playing with improvisers like Axel Dörner, Evan Parker, Alan Silva, Burkhard Beins, Raymond Strid and many others.

AND A LIST OF WHERE WE PLAYED THE LAST YEARS: 

Pierre Borel [FR]  alto saxophone

Joel Grip [SE] double bass


Their music undergoes a constant change - continuous  development.

Simultaneously: starting, stopping.

Interrupts. Erupts.

Interacting intuitive energy / intense contemplation.

Audible focus.

A dotted silence questioning the ongoing.

Hits the guts, at the same time welds wounds.

Takes all under consideration.

Then erupts again. Moves on at the moment it stops

and starts all over again.

Improvising:

Music.
