The tracks of the album Esox lucius were recorded on high end analogue technique at the Czech Radio Broadcasting Studio in Prague. Four exceptional instrumentalists are creating bubbling and zizzling chamber music, they are blurring the edges of their instruments, but contemporarily dialoguing with a precise and unique vocabulary. The record is based on minimal drones, refined with analogue trumpet glitches and extended vocal techniques. Brass is bubbling, feedbacks are shrieking, it sounds as if a red glowing wire is cutting into a block of ice. Under predatory hissings evaporates a tinny morse alphabet. What remains are sublime minimal highlights, set with pinpoint accuracy.

 "A dark underwater-like atmosphere... it's shimmering, swooshing, rattling in finest manufacture" freistil (AT)

"...Electroacoustic improvisation with a chamber music perspective."   jazz.pt (PT)

"...This quartet sounds as if they have always played together, ... and again it proves to me that rather than scenes should be monitored individuals or individual works."  his voice (CZ)
