The German-Luxembourgian bass clarinet player Michel Pilz is one of the world`s most original and imaginative musicians in the field of improvisation music since the end of the 1970ies. He planned his project RESSUAGE together with a mastermind of the French free improvisation scene, the Parisian drummer Jean-Noel Cognard. On RESSUAGE there are no themes or changes, collective improvisation is the rule. Wouldn`t there be some extremely exciting irritations: first of all the surprisingly jazzy bass ostinati in an almost groovy manner, then the soundscapes of the band`s two „electronic technicians“ Patrick Müller und Sébastian Rivas. They re-define the band`s ways of communication in improvisation over and over again and sometimes even edit live the acoustic signal of each.
