triple deck

another unusual kapotski release .

Kapotski is a live plastic & electric impro trio. Its energy and singularity arise from the magic of playing together, from the dynamics that emerges between the three musicians Jonas Nachtergaele, Ruben Nachtergaele and Kurt Stockman.

Triple Deck is  a release/installation that represents Kapotski in its purest form. For a week Jonas, Ruben and Kurt sojourned in a 19th century villa on the Normandy Beach to experiment with registration, play, improvisation and composition.

The result consists of three mono‐tracks, one by each musician, that were recorded simultaneously during an improvisation session. Every track gets its own vinyl record: one by Ruben, one by Jonas and one by Kurt. The three records are played on three different decks with three separate speakers. The decks are put on auto­-repeat. In this manner Triple Deck is made up of three un-synchronized records, which form an auditive reconstruction of a typical Kapotski performance.

The three records are released together in a limited edition of 50 copies on the new label Les Albums Claus – Les Ateliers Claus. Thanks to CAMPO for being supportive in the production phase.
