Real time is an extraordinary example of interaction between musicians coming from different worlds of new music.
I had the chance to perform with those two great musicians on other occasions: in duo with Curran and in duo, trio and sextet with Parker.
Alvin came from the American school, full of minimalist references, melodic structures and open to all kinds of contamination.
Evan had left jazz to accomplish his own instrumental language, aiming at total improvisation.
The idea of getting them to put together a trio that would perform several concerts and recording was one of the most exciting moments of my career.
Our three languages found a common ground of expression where different musical backgrounds came together and created a unique blend for that period of time.
On that occasion I began to explore the possibilities of electronic sound with one of the first percussion synthesizers to appear on the market.
I was stimulated by Curran's artistry who could create fascinating electronic sounds in real time in an era when live electronic were almost impossible to play, due to the complicate patching required.
Parker too plays electronic in this context and gives fresh colors to the sound of his saxophones, with a surprising final result.
Along with the material already on LP, this CD contains an
interesting new release recorded at the same studio the day after.
