Four free-spirited, authoritative band leaders from France and the US share the stage for improvised music in a unique line-up: flutes, cello, piano and drums. The improvisations by The Sync have a unique character, joining the various individual timbres in a fascinating ensemble sound.
French flutist Sylvaine Hélary combines flutes of various sizes with vocals. Just as extraordinary is the (prepared-) piano playing of her compatriot Eve Risser, who recently performed at the BIMHUIS with Kaja Draksler. Cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm and drummer Mike Reed, who are both from Chicago, are established names in the international improv scene. The foursome has been active for a couple of years and has released an album through The Bridge Transatlantic Network for Jazz and Creative Music.
