Dans les Arbres: Volatile (Excerpt) by SOFA published on 2019-10-01T16:44:53Z SOFA MUSIC is very excited to have signed the extraordinary ensemble Dans les arbres. More than 150 concerts during the last 15 years of extensive touring in USA, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe, has given the ensemble an impressive reputation throughout the world. Their fourth album, “Volatil”, is documenting Dans les arbres for the first time in a live situation. The ensemble's previous albums; “Dans les arbres” (ECM, 2008), “Canopée” (ECM, 2012) and “Phosphorescence” (HUBRO, 2017) are all recordings made in a studio or on location. “Volatil” is an unedited live performance from Teatro San Leonardo in Bologna (Italy, 2018) - a recording that captures the work of the ensemble in its natural habitat. "Volatil" is a strikingly well-documented example of the quartet’s capacity to shape hour-long intense musical dramas. The listener will recognize this significant sound-world, which has been praised worldwide.
