Glissonic Trio, Opus Jazz Club Budapest, 12 June
What happens if you cross a violin with a tárogató? We get the first member of the Glissonic family of instruments, the Glissotar.

Winner of both the Grand Prize and the Audience Prize at the Guthman Musical Instrument Competition 2022 in Atlanta, this unique instrument is the brainchild of Dániel Váczi, developed in collaboration with designer Tóbiás Terebessy.

The main novelty of the Glissonic family of instruments is that instead of holes, the pitch can be controlled with a longitudinal slot and a magnetic strip, so that – like on a violin string – long glissandos, tremolos and microtonal tones can be played, and the instrument can also be used to produce unusual, special effects.

Dániel Váczi exploits the potential of this new instrument with his trio. His partners are two great figures of the Hungarian free and experimental jazz scene, Máté Pozsár, with whom Dániel also plays in the Decolonize Your Mind Society band, and Zsolt Sárvári Kovács, with whom Dániel has been playing in various bands for twenty-five years.

After Rebus, the trio has now released their second album Interplanetary Posts, consisting of free improvisations.
