When Bart Maris, Jan Klare, Wilbert de Joode and Michael Vatcher founded the band 1000 - the predeccesor of this sextett-version - in 2004, they immediately started playing compositions, that were originally not designed as vehicles for improvisation - thus establishing an own distinctive style.
7 march 2019: an evening of improvisation from Muzzix Lille
Fascinated by the alchemy between musical matter, timbre of the instrument, space and time, trumpeter Christian Pruvost from Lille and the Japanese percussionist Seijiro Murayama deliver improvised music consisting of breathing, whispering, voices meet skins with an emotional power without equivalent.

One doesn't even need to 'enter' into the music of Toma Gouband: our ears and eyes are invited, by the spectacular and extraordinary organisation of colors and timbres that make up his dreaming inventive universe. Pieces of flint, natural skins covering a horizontal bass drum, which has scattered upon it tiny bells or blocks of wood, branches and twigs… pebbles rolled on the ground, inverted cymbals collcting thus all sorts of natural resonators… The high-hat cymbals have been replaced by…they've also been replaced by stones! Animated by an interior pulsation made from the superimposition of mysterious cycles, like so many clocks telling life's time in polyrythms that collide and cross over each other, the music of Toma Gouband transcends the idea of an imaginary territory, for it invites us to approach it as we would a social rite or even a ceremony of love.

CITADELIC FESTIVAL 29 MAY - 2 JUNE
Fujii Satoko will be coaching a line up of young musicians for different concerts: 4 French musicians & 4 Citadelic musicians. They are performing on the 2nd of june.
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
