about

Trio Alta is a story of love.

Michaël Attias, Thierry Waziniak, and Gaël Mevel wished here for a few melodies to be heard, ones that remember so that we can forget.

They improvise melodies by Ravel, by Josquin des Prés, by Manuel de Falla, or a song sung by Edith Piaf because sheer songfulness in its simplicity speaks within them and speaks to all.

They do so with a fully inhabited taste for freedom, an unsettling relationship to tempo, and the desire to let each dance, each musical utterance, soar.

The trio moves, with slowness and joy, between the demands of melody, silence, and deep energy, the kind that embraces the history of jazz and of all music.


Le Trio Alta est une histoire d'amour.

Michaël Attias , Thierry Waziniak, et Gaël Mevel ont voulu ici donner à écouter quelques mélodies, parce qu'elles ont une mémoire et aussi parce qu'on peut l'oublier.

Ils improvisent ainsi des mélodies de Ravel, de Josquin Després, de Manuel de Falla, ou des chansons chantées par Edith Piaf, parce que leur chant simple parle en eux, et à chacun.

Ils le font avec un goût gigantesque et assumé pour la liberté, un rapport troublant au tempo, et la volonté de laisser jaillir chaque danse, chaque parole musicale.

Ce trio offre une oscillation lente et joyeuse entre l'exigence du sens mélodique, le silence, et une énergie profonde, de celles qui brassent l'histoire du jazz et de la musique.

about

Gaël Mevel Abbéville La Rivière, France

Both a cellist, pianist, improviser and a composer, his intellectual curiosity has lead him to develop a language at the borders of improvisation, contemporary music and jazz.

As a composer, he creates an original, sensitive universe. As an improviser, he delivers an austere though sensual language, a language born of silence.
