Aymeric Avice & Avreeayl Ra met in Chicago in November 2013. They were part of a quintet dedicated to the exploration of the possible relationships between jazz, improvisation, and “trance” music. The former is a fiery young trumpet player, who allows himself every experiment and excess, the latter is a veteran drummer and percussionist of Chicago’s scene, stories, legends, and music utopias. Together they had the idea to not only pursue their collaboration in France, in the shape of an unbreakable duo, like a modern Drum & Bugle Corps, but open their exchanges and debates to improvisers standing on their way or their firebreak. As if to illuminate the crossroads.
