Ivann Cruz and Maciej Garbowski meet in 2010 in the JazzPlaysEurope project.
In response ot this first meeting, the two musicians decide to form a new project : they surround themselves with Peter Orins (Lille) on drums and Kari Heinilä on saxophones and flutes. They decide to compose the music together and in two steps, in the manner of a correspondence, by games of distorted quotes, of extensions and deconstructions.
The project combines the different musical universe of the musicians, with aesthetic from jazz to rock, through improvised music and contemporary of traditional music.
