Giovanni Barcella is a jazz drummer born near Como, Italy. He took lessons at l'Accademia Jazz in Bergamo and in the center CDPM at G. Prina. He plays full of Italian passion and has a big heart for all sincere and contrarian forms of music. He experiments and adores rhythms that go against the grain, both of which naturally steered him towards both present-day and avant-garde projects.ticket = entrance to exposition in SMAK Nocturne '.Signal or Noise | The Photographic II' + '.Geloof in Uw Tijd - Karel J. Geirlandt en de Vereniging voor het Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst (1957-'60)'

The band 1000 has gone through many musical developments since it was founded in 2004 by Jan Klare, Bart Maris, Wilbert de Joode and Michael Vatcher. It actually started playing compositions mainly from the classical world by composers like Wagner Bach or Monteverdi, combined with some originals by Klare. Although composition was always a crucial element in their music, the way these four players improvised together was the prominent impressive side of the quartet. ("consistently interesting quartet that keeps evolving and getting better with each release." Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery). Through the years 1000 developed a very intuitive, almost telepathic musical language with an enormous instinct for form and structure. When drummer Vatcher left to New York City in 2017 the band was shaken. An invitation to the Moers festival 2018 and demand of some bookers pushed 1000 back into action ending up as a six piece band including Elisabeth Coudoux on cello and Steve Swell on trombone.

This project is part of Breaking The Improvised Border : Citadelic (Gent - B, citadelic.be) + Muzzix (Lille - Fr, muzzix.info)
dans le cadre de la convention de coopération culturelle entre la Communauté Flamande et la Région Hauts-de-France
in het kader van de culturele samenwerkingsovereenkomst tussen Vlaanderen en Hauts-de-France
Critics and fans alike hail pianist and composer Satoko Fujii as one of the most original voices in jazz today. A truly global artist, she tours internationally leading several ensembles based in Japan, Europe, and the United States. Just as her career spans international borders, her music spans many genres, blending jazz, contemporary classical, rock, and traditional Japanese music into an innovative synthesis instantly recognizable as hers alone. Her wide-ranging compositions can incorporate the simple melodies of folk song, the harmonic sophistication of jazz, the rhythmic power of rock, and the extended forms of symphonic composers. Although Fujii's compositions are full of sudden shifts in direction and mood, the extremes are always part of a greater conceptual whole. The 2015 El Intruso International Critics Poll recognized her as one of the composers of the year and in 2016 she was named a Rising Star Composer in the 64th Annual DownBeat International Critics Poll. As an improviser, Fujii is equally wide-ranging and virtuosic. In her solos, explosive free jazz energy mingles with delicate melodicism and a broad palette of timbre and textures.
"She is the Ellington of free jazz."―Bob Rusch, Cadenc
"Unpredictable, wildly creative, and uncompromising…Fujii is an absolutely essential listen for anyone interested in the future of jazz." ― Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz
"Fujii is clearly one of the most exciting musicians to come along in a while." ― Robert Iannapollo, Cadence
