The six tracks on Gestures form a journey through all the subtle movements of musical dialogue. Flow, stillness, contrast and space: these are the elements that mark the intimate world shaped by pianist Daniel Roser and drummer Gustan Asselbergs. Their intuitive way of playing leaves room for the unexpected and opens up a space for the smallest gesture to become a turning point. Rather than limiting the musical possibilities by all-defining compositions Roser/Asselbergs let the music evolve from clear yet challenging points of departure which invite the listener to engage with the musical stream. Gestures is the duo's first release. It captures music at the moment of its acoustic creation.
