DELL LILLINGER WESTERGAARD „GRAMMAR II“
Christopher Dell - Vibraphone
Christian Lillinger - Drums
Jonas Westergaard Bass
GRAMMAR II by DLW (Dell Lillinger Westergaard) pushes the boundaries of experimental music yet again. The album documents the progress by the three musicians (Christopher Dell vibraphone, Christian Lillinger drums, Jonas Westergaard bass) over the last seven years. This stems from the theory and practices developed since the release of GRAMMAR on gligg records in 2012.
GRAMMAR II was recorded live on June 12th, 2019 at Loft in Cologne. Christopher Dell: “GRAMMAR II examines and experiments on structural framework as a set of strategic musical viewpoints that inform the practices of DLW as a community of players.”
At the heart of the recording lies the production of music both as improvisational form- making as well as technology. In the process, the recording documents amongst other things the emergence of musical concepts through the framework of structure. Furthermore, it examines the identification with improvisation and the exploration of the outer limits of rhythmical, melodic and harmonic control. Finally, it sets out new areas in the realm of music research and collaboration.
