You can often judge musicians by the company they keep. Float the Edge, the latest album from pianist-composer Angelica Sanchez, features her alongside two of the most sought-after rhythm-section musicians on the scene: veteran bassist Michael Formanek and rising-star Tyshawn Sorey, both acclaimed leader-composers in their own right. To be released via Clean Feed Records on March 25, 2017, Float the Edge sees this earthy, expansive trio perform Sanchez’s compositions, as well as several free improvisations. “A lot of what we do as a trio and what each of us does living a life in this music is take things to the edge, taking the risk to jump off without really knowing where you’re going to land,” the pianist says. “When it works, you feel like you’re floating it’s beautiful.”
Aural Float was formed in 1993 as an "electronic ambient project" with lots of electro acoustic and creative interplay. The colab is floating with "deep sounds". Aural Float's music style can be best described as "modern electronic listening music" ranging from ambient to space and experimental soundscapes. They compiled the soundtracks for the german cult TV-series "Space Night", that has been broadcasted every night at tv-station BR, played at many "chill out events", and they released three electronic and atmospheric albums, Introspectives, Freefoat and Beautiful Someday.
