| Alzheimer Trio
total-impro-quasi-free-no-memory music action!
The continuous improvising, non-compromising music action of Alzheimer Trio started in October 2005, when Grom, Manček and Stanič met on stage as members of audio/visual experimental group Bast Collective and free jazz project Lolita Libre projects.
Ever since, their performances have been disquieting and disturbing the audiences of Slovenian, Italian, German, Austrian and Slovakian clubs and festivals. In first year of it's activity, Alzheimer Trio has executed over 25 improvised gigs and has performed improvised sessions with Anthony Pateras, Robin Fox, Will Guthrie, Ferran Fages, Jean-Philippe Gross, Devil?Man, Ignaz Schick, Mikrokolektyw, Mimesys and Dieb13 among others.
