Cloud and Stone

Taiko Saito – vibraphone
Alexander Beierbach – tenor saxophone
Maike Hilbig – bass

Concrete and grounded like a stone, fleeting and changing like a cloud – the music of Cloud and Stone allows textures to come into contact with each other, aggregate states to merge. Taiko Saito, Alexander Beierbach and Maike Hilbig constantly create new sound figures in their compositions that are as tangible as they are suggestive. The Berlin trio, which performs with chamber music intensity and great improvisational freedom, gave its first concert in 2023 and made demo recordings shortly afterwards. The three have known each other for a long time from various musical contexts and now form a neighborhood band: they live with their families just a stone’s throw away from each other.
