MAN OF WAR

TIT (Total Improvisation Troop) was conceived in 2011 as a transmutable ensemble, a “live” laboratory involving sound art, electronics, traditional acoustic jazz set-ups and world instruments. The TIT itself is a modular structure for freedom, its various incarnations celebrate the breach of stylistic borders through a variety of strategies which can be followed or ignored. The focus in this project is improvisation but with a perspective broad enough to encompass ”energy” playing and” textural” playing. The excerpts featured in this CD were compiled from three different live performances, namely MAN OF WAR, TITANIUM ALLOY and TIT IS A BIRD.
