H A S T
Freejazz, Improvisation, Rock
Minimal, Noise, Avant-Garde
Winner Jazztract Gent Jazz Festival 2017
H A S T started around one idea: to combine the ecletic taste of this quintet of kindred spirits into one clear musical vision.
Their sound can best be described as not shying away from exploratory intellect while still maintaining passages of stunning simplicity, rock riffs and avant-garde. Lush minimal soundscapes intertwined with noise elements reminiscent of some kind of weird mixture between a Mondriaan and Pollock painting.
A potpourri of musical elements, best listened to rather than read about.
