The Ensemble Progresivo was born in 2007 from an idea of Ricardo Tejero of working free improvisation whithin a compositive context, following the influence established by some works of composers and improvisers like Richard Barret, John Butcher, John Zorn, Barry Guy or Anthony Braxton.
With this excellent release we announced in June 2010 the premiere of Audition Records.
This way the group plunge into improvisations which happen within pre-arranged structures, through previously
agreed musical paths or even together with composed music, but at the same time trying to maintain the essential
principal of giving the musicians the least possible number of restrictions.
In february 2009, the Ensemble Progresivo presented this performance at Hurta Cordel, in the 13th Edition
of the International Festival of Free Improvisation in Madrid.
