Improvisation, Jazz, Experimental
With Nordmann, Mattias De Craene combines the spontaneity and flexibility of a jazz band with the energy and tightness of a rock & roll unit.
With his own projects, the music increasingly delves into freedom, wide-ranging moods and a diverse range of line-ups.
Inspired by John Lurie’s National Orchestra and the work of several other free-thinking musical ancestors, MDC III is De Craene’s new genre-defying trio with drummers Simon Segers and Lennert Jacobs.
MDCIII is a double-drummed thunderstorm fronted by a saxophone that leads it into a psychotic red-light atmosphere where David Lynch meets Francis Ford Coppola.
