After the maximal 'Left Tokyo Right' and  'Drops & Points' projects , Luxembourg-born bandleader, composer and vibraphone player Pascal Schumacher strips down for the first time to a very personal, minimal solo programme on the vibraphone. An intimate sonic experience full of sensibility and melody.
