Thomas Jillings – tenor saxophone, alto clarinet
Ruben Machtelinckx – acoustic baritone guitar
Could a sound turn inward and face itself? When I really listen to this music, I feel like I'm staring into the sky. How do they do it? The boundless aspect implies a dreaming state, yet at the peripheries of the reflective finger picking which blossoms in the most beautiful modulations, and the speculative breath which converges and diverges with the tempo, constantly tightening and loosening its grip, there is a longing again, like the feeling that you may lose touch with something or someone you love and you must see them one more time.
