Some of Daniels recordings can be found on the Leo, Confront, FMR and Inexhaustible Editions record labels.

// JACQUES FOSCHIA is a composer, radio artist, and sonic sailor. Many of Foschia’s investigations in different fields of improvisation begin by exploring the relationship between dance and music with Barre Phillips, an American jazz and free improvisation bass player who founded the Centre Européen Pour l’Improvisation (CEPI – European Improvisation Center) in 2014 in southern France. In 2000, he joined the colorful and innovative band London Improvisers Orchestra, and has since developed collaborations with experimental groups from the London improvisation scene such as the Bohman Brothers, Lawrence Casserley, David Leahy, Tony Marsh, David Tucker, among others. And in 2001, he founded the Belgian/German band Canaries on the Pole with acclaimed musicians Christoph Irmer, Georg Wissel, and Mike Goyvaerts. He is also engaged in radio art, producing radio pieces under several names for international organizations and stations including Kunstradio ORF, Radia FM, Silenceradio, and for many years has been working on streaming and live performances with the Japanese philosopher, activist, and radio artist Tetsuo Kogawa.

// JJ DUERINCKX aka Maurice Charles Jj saxophonist, composer, sound artist, practicing mainly the sopranino and baritone saxophones. First influenced by Steve Lacy, Anthony Braxton, John Surman, Hamiet Bluiett; his meetings with saxophonists Lol Coxhill and later Michel Doneda were finally decisive – guiding his playing to a world where sound material and abstract melodies coexist and intermingle. He plays or has played with musicians such as John Russell, Adam Bohman, Adrian Northover, Lol Coxhill, Michel Doneda, Pascal Marzan, Jacques Foschia, Tom Jackson, Matthieu Safatly among others. He is always looking to new collaboration Always open to new meetings, transdiciplinarity in art is important for him. He likes to collaborate with other forms of artistic expressions by contribution with the unique character of his instrument’s own rare vocal qualities which he also uses for his compositions. He is also a sound artist, his creations as been shown in the City Sonic festival. He is the founder of One Moment Free Improv and leads improvised music workshops.
