« neigen », from the German verb: to tend towards.
Improvisers aspire to the unpredictable, in a relationship of mutual trust. Each one, braced in the moment, is inhabited by the memory of countless music played, heard, dreamed of. Determined by instrumental practice, acquired experience, and by instinct and thought of one’s own.
They strive for those suspended moments where they surrender to this magic that runs through them, of which they become receivers, conducting bodies. They cultivate an appetite for these intense plateaus where one experiences, sometimes fleetingly, an intuitive connection between musicians linked by a telepathic thread.

Les improvisateurs aspirent à l’imprévisible, dans une relation de confiance réciproque. Chacun, arc-bouté sur l’instant, est habité par la mémoire d’innombrables musiques jouées, entendues, rêvées. Et déterminé par la pratique instrumentale, l’expérience acquise, ainsi que par un instinct et une pensée propres.
Ils tendent vers ces moments suspendus où ils s’abandonnent à cette magie qui les traverse, dont ils devennent les récepteurs,
les corps conducteurs. Ils cultivent l’appétence pour ces plateaux d’intensité où l’on expérimente, parfois de manière fugitive,
une connexion intuitive entre musiciens reliés par un fil
d’ordre télépathique.
