The experimental label wabi-sabi tapes in Lyon, France has arrived for the first time in Japan.

This work is the latest work of Brussel's jazz band morosphinx in November 2020... Includes 4 songs for almost an hour. Limited to 1DL code included.

Introducing morosphinx, a squeaky trio from Brussels. Recorded in Vilvoorde, on the outskirts of the Belgian capital, this album probes impressions of relative distances within a sound space. together and define their own landmarks.


The A side of vilvoorde is experienced as a long, unresolved breath. Silence is its latent base and reminds the listener of it as a ghostly fourth member. For this purpose, each musician will draw from the depth of their instrumental languages.

First, there is the continuous breathing of Mathieu Lilin whose whistling comes to strike the walls of the bell of his baritone saxophone. Then there is the bow of double bassist Arnaud Paquotte, who sets the rhythm of the trio's impulses with a clever play of glissandos Finally, Daniel Dariel's percussions are always trying to escape from their original idioms. They hiss, crackle, sing and sometimes tumble to bring energy back into the immediacy of improvisation.

Musical time is more jerky and each intervention is volatile. During the last movement of vilvoorde, each part withdraws into itself as if it were load of its previous interactions. The interrogative form that these last moments take leads the listener to extract himself quickly as if he were the final punctuation of this tumultuous exchange.
