Antoine Pierre URBEX has been intensively experimenting on stage its creation in 2016. The repertoire of « Sketches Of Nowhere » is now retrieved live by the core of the band: the quintet. The tracks of "Sketches of Nowhere" mark a real turning point for URBEX: the sonic atmosphere is hypnotic, the acoustic piano of Bram De Looze blends into the electrifying sound effects of Bert Cools. Felix Zurstrassen remains the pillar of the group around which all lines of force converge, but bass riffs have become more groovy and catchy, with the typic-al impacts of electronic music. The trumpet of Jean Paul Estivénart adds once again a stubborn and powerful dimension to the overall sound of the band. The quintet has plenty of space to express the individuality of each musician during collective improvisations framed by the compositions. Thus, this allows a recreation of the repertoire at every single concert. Indeed, the compositions of "Sketches Of Nowhere » can be played in dozens of possible versions, according to the unpredictable parameters of the present moment: NOW- HERE. Volumes and dynamics as well are tempo's are in perpetual motion; the group's cohesion is constantly tested in this triumphant exercise of listening and feeling.
