Trio LDP in Residence, exploratorium berlin, 20. – 22. März 2020

Trio LDP & Thomas Lehn

Urs Leimgruber (CH) – saxophone
Jacques Demierre (CH) – piano
Barre Phillips (US/FR) – doublebass
Thomas Lehn (DE/AT) – synthesizer

The adventure of improvisation is seldom shown quite plainly as with this trio. For nearly 20 years, saxophonist Urs Leimgruber, pianist Jacques Demierre and double bassist Barre Phillips have been trying to bring their stupendous music of the moment to life in a different and surprising way. In doing so, they enter into sonic realms that often surprise them themselves. The trio has its fans at the relevant locations and festivals worldwide. Anyone who has been following their work for years is amazed at how they repeatedly sharpen our perceptions with their endless track.

In 2017, the trio performed in the course of various residences in Europe (Geneva, Toulon, Lucerne, Zurich, Willisau, Budapest) with illustrious guests. Already in Willisau they had a top musician on board with the virtuoso of the analog synthesizer Thomas Lehn. His electronics fit seamlessly into the pure expression of this trio. With him it is now for two concerts on residence in the exploratorium. They continue their practice of listening (see Listening, their latest album at Lenka lente) by inviting musicians from each region of the residence to a musical encounter, expanding the trio’s cast, and creating evening programs to enhance the experience of hearing from the moment to experience together.

For the concert on March 22, next to Thomas Lehn, the violinist Biliana Voutchkova and the drummer Tony Buck are added.
