Four Free Music Pieces with the Grensco Open Collective features Experimental Electronic and Contemporary Music, Free Jazz, Free Improvisations and Ethno-Jazz. These musical genres all have their place in the signature sound of the collective, a quartet working together for several years. Sleaziness and tension, enormous energies and mystical restraint, short etchings alternating with large-scale pieces, simplicity and virtuosity of folk songs form a whole in their dynamic and rhythmic performance.
István Grencsó says “We strive for playing collectively. I’ve never been interested in writing a composition, giving the song to the band, practicing the song and then presenting it. I want everyone to be a composer. I give some idea and I insist on some things, but everyone is involved as a composer in the songs. As an equal partner, inspired by each other, we shape the music together. Lewis Jordan’s improvisations are related to poetry. We make the text part of the music. Somehow it rolls together.”
