oto.3

c o n t e m p o r a r y   c o m p o s i t i o n s   i n   s o u n d

the music of oto.3 is based on sound, timbre, colour – rather than rhythm, harmony, melody.

dutch born, chennai based saxophonist and composer maarten visser organises the structures, ideas and developments in sound, and works them out with drummer robbert van hulzen and, in the 2011 incarnation, electric bass violinist holger jetter;  oto.3 was just reborn with danish bass player laue linnesen . the music they create together offers ample space for the musicians to make their own musical plan, manipulate the score, improvise.

music with a constant tension between sound and silence, notes and noise, between structure and freedom.
