Through time, some projects get stronger than others, thanks to the Christophe Calpini & Pierre Audétat musical affinities in play and the extra engagement involved.

In 2004-2005, several strings of meetings (including rehearsals, concerts, and studio sessions) were set up by Stade (Pierre Audétat, Christophe Calpini) and organised by Vincent Favrat (artistic supervision) with French trumpet player Erik Truffaz, New York-based free guitarist Elliott Sharp, and American-Swiss harmonica player Grégoire Maret. Stade later made slight edits to these recordings, without adding any overdubs.

The result is ‘Freewheel’, a brilliant blend of Christophe Calpini’s live drumming and Pierre Audétat’s live samples and concrete sounds, a set-up that allows Stade to improvise like a conventional rhythm section with electronic devices. This brand-new electroacoustic composite is resolutely jazz, yet flirts with the syncopated vocabulary of hip-hop and the beats of electronica, all that combined to the acoustic input of the guest musicians. The heir of Miles Davis’ electric experiments, Stade creates the resolutely electronic side of improvised jazz music.
