Life and Other Transient Storms
Susana Santos Silva trumpet/flugel
Lotte Anker tenor/sop Sax
Sten Sandell piano
Torbjörn Zetterberg double bass
Jon Fält drums
I put together this band on a period of my existence where I’m delightfully discovering the blessing and beauty of impermanence in my life, in the world and in all the things that are… at least for a while… until they change. Accepting this and living accordingly to this truth has changed me tremendously as a person and as a musician. It’s a peaceful state of being that is far from being still. On the contrary, it’s restless and resilient.
I felt that energy on Lotte, Sten, Torbjörn and Jon’s music from the first time I’ve heard them play live.
Together, they/we brought the urgency, intensity, and honesty of their/our beings to create this music, that existed for a moment and that will change every time someone listens to it.
What better score could I bring to the stage then just tell these amazing musicians we are playing Life and all those Transient Storms that hold existence together in the most ethereal and mysterious way?
