Unplugged Mind

Frank Gratkowski | Alexey Lapin | Sebastian Gramss | Helen Bledsoe



An international meeting in the Koln studio (Germany/Russia/USA/USA) produced fantastic results to the delight of all concerned. Frank Gratkowski – bass clarinet, Alexey Lapin – piano, Sebastian Gramss – bass, Helen Bledsoe – flute. This recording is a testimony to the fact how far spontaneous composing has travelled. All four musicians come from different cultures and backgrounds, yet they manage to create brilliant spontaneous compositions sacrificing their egos in favour of achieving a sensible whole.
