This is an excerpt from a concert of the Contemporary Collective in November 2014, where the band performs exceptionally as a trio:
Sid Hille - piano & melodica
Teemu Viinikainen - guitar
Markus Hohti - cello
The fourth member of the band, Heikki Nikula - bass clarinet, was not available for this concert.
This piece is completely improvised.
Only two things were agreed upon:
let's do something in G dominant diminished then move on to something in B minor.
Everything else happens spontaneously, guided by the ear, by the musicianship and interaction of the artists involved.
