This release brings together three Dutch composers/performers, Reinier van Houdt, Germaine Sijstermans, and Koen Nutters, who have each released their own work on elsewhere music in recent years. Nutters, who has collaborated in the past with both van Houdt (Cornelius Cardew project) and Sijstermans (DNK Ensemble, The Names), conceived the idea of a trio performance with the two musicians, which later developed into this three-way collaborative project.

Last December the trio played a concert at the Savelberg Chapel, a small church in Heerlen, Limburg (NL), where they played three pieces, one written by each: Linden (Sijstermans), A Piece with Memories (Nutters), and Harmonic Circles (van Houdt). This release is a live recording of that performance.

Using various instruments including clarinets, indian harmonium, harmona organ, voices, field recordings, sine tones, objects, and tapes, the trio played in perfect synch, giving the three pieces rich, complex layers of sound and profundity, enveloping the audience in a vibrant yet contemplative space.
