Trio Muo presents me and my colleagues, bassist Michael Morse and drummer Joe Sorbara, with the kind of creative challenge on which we thrive: freedom to create musical structures spontaneously. We all compose, and we all like to experiment. When we play, both processes happen simultaneously.
While we play our own compositions and some pieces by other artists, our live performances invariably include unpremeditated, impromptu real-time three-way composing. It's free improvisation that sounds premeditated, rehearsed and 'articulate'. Each of us is free to take the music anywhere on the spur of the moment; each of us lets the shape and impetus of the music take from us what IT wants. Our goal is to let the music play us.
