Andreas Kaling, specialist for original, saxophone-oriented projects, presents something completely new with his trio A.R.K.: a bass saxophone as deep base within an ensemble. As a bass saxophone is not a double bass "Music By Endangered Species" sounds different at each point of improvisation, even more original, more gripping. A.R.K. is meant as English translation of the German word "Arche" ('Ark of special instruments') or rather the initial letters of the names of the band's three members. Each piece has been composed by Andreas Kaling, who is leader of the band. In the rehearsing process the trio develops his compositions further, using the creative circle's input to let the arrangements shine in different lights, questioning and changing old structures over and over again. That's how typical A.R.K. sounds evolve: from simple forms as well as from higly complex and nested ones.
