Renato Diz: piano & extended techniques; Sérgio Tavares: double bass & extended techniques; Jorge Queijo: drums & extended techniques
ARS TRIO was born in 2009 when pianist Renato Diz and bassist Sérgio Tavares realized that their deep musical connection had to be complimented by a third member, Jorge Queijo. From there an organic sonic birth took place. Despite their apparent traditional orchestration, ARS Trio has a very distinctive sound and approach to music making. Heavily based on improvisation and experimentation (like prepared piano, bass extended techniques and various non-drumming percussion toys) this project values collective texture over individual virtuosity. Moved by their common love for cinema "Poetics of Sight" is their debut album, an improvised homage to the world of images that provoke, unsettle and make us dream. Each work is an unrepeatable event where the audience is invited to embark on a journey of unexpected colors and surreal landscapes from a movie yet to be made. credits released October 5, 2016 Renato Diz - Piano & Extended Techniques Sérgio Tavares - Double Bass & Extended Techniques Jorge Queijo - Drums & Extended Techniques Recorded by José Diogo Neves assisted by Fernando Rocha, on January 7th 2015, at Aura Studios, Paços de Brandão, Portugal Mixed & Mastered by José Diogo Neves, in Tallinn, Estonia Artwork by Dária Salgado Produced & Released by W&J Productions For more information please visit: www.wjproductionsllc.com © 2016 W&J Productions.
