Pénte

pente01Pénte is a new imaginative project by bassist and composer Tomas Liska, hailing from the Czech Republic. Tomas chose four German colleagues and then they embarked on an experimental voyage together. The path is, sometimes wild, sometimes toughtful, sometimes joyous, sometimes debateful,  but still respects the inclination towards chamber dialogue.

The music unites the improvisational, classical, as well as song and jazz forms, working with contrasting layers and sounds, with space in the compositions, all of which creates a balance across these genres.

Tomas Liska (CZ) – acoustic bass
Fabiana Striffler (D) – violin
Šimon Marek (CZ) – cello
Markus Ehrlich (D) – clarinets
Natalie Hausmann (D) – tenor sax

In December 2014 the band released brand new album Bercheros Odyssey.
