In the Transatlantic Roots project, composer Bruno Angelini, along with Fabrice Martinez (trumpet/bugle) and Eric Echampard (drums), explores a double culture to bring to life the themes and subjects imagined by Bruno. His compositions develop a personal language in a harmonic universe close to contemporary music - a meticulous and demanding sound research which he pursues on the piano. Though anchored in European music, the music is crossed by African American idioms which work underground in the musical material, as an underlying and permanent presence. It is this double culture that this power trio explores together - to bring the themes and subjects imagined by Bruno Angelini to life.
