COMPRESSION

The whole set (51 minutes) was played and recorded in real time, without any interruption, and can be heard here in its entirety. This is the unadulterated original. The twelve titled numbers have been individually cued on the CD. All compositions by Schlippenbach/Parker/Lovens, except ´All the things you are` (paraphrase dvs/pi), ´Variations on G´, and ´Singles´.

Alex von Schlippenbach

SCHLIPPENBACH TRIO

It would be wearisome to harp on about how long this group has been together. You can find dates somewhere else. The fact is we´ve been playing together a long time and there is much in the broad structure of pieces which happens over and over again. This doesn´t come about through a lack of ideas but simply through the finite combinatorial possibilities of the number three. X, y, z can give you xy, xz and yz. And then (xy)z, (xz)y, (yz)x or then again (x)(y), (x)(z), (y)(z) or yes even (x), (y) and (z). Interpret the symbols, signs and brackets anyway you like, they´re all true and they´ve all happened in almost every concert we ever played. (…) The interest is in how life stays in it.

Evan Parker (program brochure Total Music Meeting 2002)
