At 6 years old João wanted to be a garbageman, at 12 he wanted to be a football player and finally, at the age of 14, for no good reason, he decided to be a musician. Today, he still wants to be a musician even though he would appreciate to be a gardener in part-time. He is presenting his original music and music from composer and performer Filipe Fernandes. Here are the incredibly nice people working with him: 

Richard Köster - Trumpet
Jo David - Guitar, prepared Guitar
Filipe Fernandes - electronics

Reindert the saxophonist was born in a musical family. His mother likes G. Telemann, his brother sings musicals, his girlfriend loves Atomic Kitten and his dad must be the only one not to know Justin Bieber - lucky him. None of the previous will you be able to hear in the music for his ensemble, creatively named Ensemble17. Including all 3 idiots in the picture and one home-grown wondercat: Raymond Storaunet Lavik.
