"Lossing is, plain and simple, a monster. With a richly resonant sound, he probes and wanders, darts, stabs, pokes around, then suddenly dazzles with an extended cascade that’ll raise the hairs on your neck."

- Jazziz Magazine

For connoisseurs of fully improvised music.

TWICE is a fascinating journey into imaginary soundscapes by two masterful improvisers.

A strange and magical trek that begins in the blended realm of extended percussion and inside-the-piano techniques, gradually separating into a full-blown piano and drum dialogue.  

“ intrepid searcher with an end point in mind.”

-  New York Times

“ a gripping improviser, pulling ideas out of the air and nudging them into the action at hand as if they always belonged there”                                                                                                                                                                               - Village Voice
