Markus Gottschlich Trio feat. Gary Campell
The Florida based pianist presents his exciting new Trio project, which utilizes and re-interprets ‘everyday sounds’ captured during a 2- year period in 5 countries. These familiar ‘sounds’ and ‘noises’ are at the core of Gottschlich’s compositions and become a springboard for the Trio’s improvisations.
