A dream-like aura surrounds these recordings by Evan Parker and Mathew Wright - Trance Map+ from the Jazz Festival Nickelsdorf: Crepuscule in Nickelsdorf. “Filtered through the silicon of the hard drive, birds and insects often sound electronically generated and some of the synthesized sounds, designed in software, sound like birds and insects with wings of their own,” writes American journalist Bill Shoemaker. The real seems virtual; the virtual seems real – it is the ambiguity essential to the power of dreams. Evan Parker and Matt Wright met in 2008 and out of their first studio sessions developed Trance Map – a project, that mixes field recordings, samples from cassettes, turntable scratching and the live processing of Evan Parkers's relentlessly evolving saxophone lines. Since that time Trance Map has developed to include live events across Europe.

Evan Parker recommends playing Trance Map late at night at a low volume and letting the music point the way to and through sleep – beautiful dreams, that's what he wishes the listener. That may be possible with Crepuscule in Nickelsdorf, although the enthusiastic applause at the end of the performance confirms the audience remained wide awake throughout. A better send-off for the listener of this recording may well be to say Bon Voyage.
