Trio Vopá

Roland Spieth - trumpet
Cornelius Veit - electric guitar, effects
Axel Haller - electric bass, paper, tape recorder

"Trio Vopa plays some fine music on Fauxpas. This is the kind of stuff I dig, with lots of groaning, sputtering, droning, and crackle. Veit does some really subtle manipulation of his guitar, as does Haller with electric bass, and Spieth plays some fine muted trumpet. The spacious electronic backgrounds contrast with the warm amber of Spieth’s horn, but sometimes the band billows with noisy intensity or almost retreats into silence. This is restrained but highly creative stuff."
