For the last 10 years or more, the duo of Tony Buck and Meredith Maloney, collectively known as SPILL, have been exploring their own special approach to improvising within a shared textural world and rhythmic syntax that culminates in a unified, blended sound, Drums, percussion; Piano and Clavinet communicating in a constant shifting dialog.
Performing around the world in a variety of contexts, they often find themselves in Australia, where, over the last 5 years, they have developed a collaborative relationship with Melbourne guitarist David Brown, formally of the trio Pateras, Baxter, Brown.
Through numerous performances in Australia and throughout Europe these three have found a shared sensibility and drawn upon their extensive experience to create a unique approach to trio improvising. Pointalistic interaction combine with blended and contrasting timbral sonorities to expand the language developed by SPILL into a new, more expansive whole; prepared piano and guitar and drums intertwined and subtlety shifting in focus like a constantly shifting kaleidoscope of sound.
Ft Tony Buck, Berlin-based drummer from New York Times #1 rated jazz trio The Necks.
