Don’t Tell (The Bridge #2.2)

France

Slow dating

The Bridge, squared. This project is the second group to emerge from the second generation of French-American collaborative ensembles that The Bridge is putting into orbit. Following an intuition initially proposed by guitarist Raymond Boni, Mai Sugimoto, Anton Hatwich, and Paul Rogers took the time in November 2019 in Chicago to explore the possibilities of a vessel with mostly string instruments and no keyboards, no percussion, piloted simultaneously by four individuals with radically different artistic personalities. The idea was to create music that would grapple with the ideas of unfolding and entanglement, of sound as a set of lines and twists. Distant points in space and time can always be connected, even when one would not expect it, especially when one does not expect it:

Improvisation being a fundamental link for the coexistence of beings, what interests me the most in this Franco-American meeting, is the singular path of each one, and the unedited quality of this event.
