Sven-Ake Johansson, Andrea Neumann and Axel Dörner formed the trio Barcelona Series in the end of the 90's. Their music was utterly important for the development of the new improscene, the new ways of improvising by using your instruments more as acoustic bodies than traditional instruments. Johansson had since the 70's been experimenting with a music with less gestures but anyhow keeping the emotional pressure. Both Dörner and Neumann were pioneers in their ways of playing their instruments. The recording by Barcelona Trio was counted as one of the land marks of the new impro. Now after years of solocareers, other groups and different challenges the trio decided to record again. This took place 2009 and you will hear Johansson, Neumann, Dörner in a very tight group situation creating an improvised music with sounds that are totally unique. The music of this trio is scarce on record, this one will be counted as one of the very important documents in the future. To add something very special Johansson«s close friend, the well known artist Albert Oehlen designed the sleeve.
