About

Last summer the three of us retreated into Vloeimans’s studio. It was the beginning of months of arranging and orchestrating. We phoned each other weekly and sometimes daily. The result is a weird and wonderful blend of two worlds. The world of early counterpoint and the world that’s called Eric Vloeimans. Eric’s music can’t be understood in terms of a particular composition technique, but it is the outcome of years of experience in improvising and writing his own music. While our first album Old, New & Blue was an encounter between two styles, Carrousel, our second album, does away with boundaries between Baroque and modern. The musical amalgam is a fact.
