The electronically accomplished bass clarinetist Jan Galega Brönnimann and the VJ duo Optickle from Bern, Switzerland, call their joint projects "audio-visual trips". Shapes and colors dance, twitch, and move through the darkened room to "melodies, sounds, bass, and air, rhythmic structures, and disturbing sounds" of the sampling instrumentalist, who was also featured with Nils Petter Molvaer, Sidsel Endresen, Pierre Favre, Eivind Aarset, Soul-singer Eddie Floyd or Kenny Werner and ist he captain of the Brink Man Ship. A trip best experienced with open eyes and ears, ranging from relaxed to brutal.
