With «Sequel,» trombonist, composer, and computer artist George Lewis presents a seminal work that breaks new ground in the borderland between acoustic and electronic music. In a unique effort of synthesis Lewis sought «to create a site of hybridity between electronic and acoustic sound worlds, and diverse aesthetic directions,» putting together an ensemble of eight musicians from different sound cultures to participate in the NEWJazz Meeting Baden-Baden in November 2004. Over the course of a couple of days, musicians from the areas of contemporary Improv, experimental electronica, independent rock sounds and modern composition worked together in the SWR studio in Baden-Baden, Germany. Material gathered from the studio recordings, plus live recordings of concerts in Basel and Rottenburg have been carefully edited for this CD that comprises the title theme «Sequel,» which is based on a composition by George Lewis, and three live cuts featuring free improvisations from the Rotenburg and Basel performances.
