Barcelona based TàLVEG is a collaborative trio installed in an incessant search for new textures, chasing the light behind dark atmospheres and desolate landscapes, combining a palette of super-saturated colors with lyrical passages. The music unfolds in the form of an oratory building a narrative flow from the combinatorial possibilities that they explore as a trio.

 

As It Fades is Tàlveg’s second long play album, a 6 piece oratorio which comes after their debut album Arbori.

 

Marcel.lí Bayer: alto and baritone saxophone

Ferran Fages: electric guitar

Oriol Roca: drums

 

 

“Tàlveg is one of the most interesting new trios on the European avant-garde scene. A must purchase for anybody interested in contemporary avant-garde.”  Maciej Lewenstein (PL)

 

“Thinking that Arbori is their first full album as Tàlveg, the listener gets the feeling of urgency and importance.” Fotis Nikolakopoulos, The Free Jazz Collective, Freejazzblog.org (INT)

 

“These guys know exactly where they are and what they’re doing – they know the architecture and ambience they’re creating: the vast halls of silence illustrated by a single harmonic, the groaning bari-ous vistas, the flocks of cymbals across a distant sky, the brutal (dis)storms… They know exactly where they are. Their world. Their landscape. Created, filled, and offered with a yin/yang gesture of grace and ugliness.” Dave Foxall, ajazznoise.com (UK)

 

“The memories of the best years of Sonic Youth in New York rumble in our ears.”  Andrzej Nowak, Spontaneousmusictribune (PL)

 

“The depths of the guttural are explored. And finally everything is heading for an eruption.”  Ferdinand Dupuis-Panther, Jazzhalo.be (BE)

 

“The notes seem to come into existence only to live a life of torture and agony, flowing between realms as fluidly as luminiferous æther. The result is an entrancing and bewildering forty-minute experience you ought to live for yourselves!” Dæv Tremblay, Canthisevenbecalledmusic.com (USA)

 

“Tàlveg explores mysterious and unsettling, cinematic soundscapes, and often opt for sparse, implied gestures that leave enough space – literally – for breath and imagination.” Eyal Hareuveni, Salt-peanuts.eu (NO)

 

“They expand the musical palette without detracting from the trio’s signature sound. Because of the often restrained tension, the listening experience is an exciting one. Beautiful album.” Gert Derkx, Opduvel.com (NL)

“Tàlveg is about contours, about incomplete music that leaves something to the imagination. Balancing on the edge of abstraction, the musicians improvise to push boundaries, not radically but with policy. Which does not mean that musically no risks are taken. It takes a lot of guts and control to maintain the retained tension.” Gert Derkx, Opduvel.com (NL)

 

“On vous assure que le paysage improvisé/sculpté par les 3 compères est à couper le souffle.” Le Grigri (FR)

“Sens-Sens is a memorable first encounter with the trio, which musically sounds as if they have known each other for years and in which each puts their individuality at the service of the common goal of making exciting improvised music that is not dominated by individual excesses but through the teamwork.” Gert Derkx, opduvel.com (NL)

 

“Tàlveg is one of the most interesting new trios on the European avant-garde scene. Their debut recording “Ses-sens” contains 4 beautifully intense and intensely beautiful short tracks and is an unquestionable revelation. A must purchase for anybody interested in contemporary avant-garde!!” Maciej Lewenstein (PL)

“On préfère vous prévenir que les 3 musiciens sus-cités ne dessinent ni n’installent de tracés ou de chemins dans leur musique. Ils explorent, défrichent, parfois même déboisent à coups de cris, de frottements, de grattements. Libre à vous de vous frayer un passage mais on vous assure que le paysage improvisé/sculpté par les 3 compères est à couper le souffle.” Le Grigri (FR)
