Improvisers group based in Berlin
Merran Laginestra; piano and voice
Antonio Bravo; guitar.
Elo Masing; violin
WIG comprises three improvisers from diverse musical backgrounds: Merran Laginestra (piano, voice) – Antonio Bravo (guitar) – Elo Masing (violin). They play freely with jazz and classical references as well as an experimental approach to sound, drawing out every possibility from their instruments. WIG paint within a large canvas, refusing to be pigeonholed into one musical style, unafraid of cliches and allusions in order to search out original pathways to explore. Theirs is a music that draws on the child-like playfulness of spontaneous interaction, the relationships between the members of the group being fundamental to the intricate layers that are woven in performance and lead us into a complex lattice that can be anything from angst to elegant delicacy.
