Czech saxophonist Michal Wróblewski, Italian guitarist Marco Fiorini and German double bassist Jonas Gerigk are three prominent personas of the European music scene oriented towards progressive jazz, free improvisation, contemporary music and sound exploration. These three musicians first met as part of the Share Impro project in Denmark in the spring of 2022, and now, thanks to the AIRinCOK residency project at Theater 29, they are releasing their debut album recorded during that residency. 

The music on the album is a calm, sonorous oasis in which individual ideas slowly develop and let the listener absorb and enjoy every detail of the timbre palette, which extends from the natural acoustic colors of individual instruments to experimental techniques, including the involvement of the co-creative improvising artificial intelligence software Somax2, developed in the Music Representation team, of which Fiorini is part, at the well-known institute of electro-acoustic music IRCAM in Paris, within the domain of the European research project REACH.
