"Augmented / informed by software manipulation for sure, but top drawer stuff. Overall, Third Opening is all about technology interfacing with three human beings seamlessly. It is hard to say where this is all edited together, I swear they even program stray drum beats in places, but the performances captured live in the studio are exemplary. Recommended." - SOUND PROJECTOR, PAUL KHIMASIA MORGAN

Inclusion Principle operates in a space between electronics, nu-jazz, contemporary electroacoustic music and free improvisation tending towards a minimalist approach.

Both Martin and Hervé play a similar set up of laptop and woodwinds and yet have a different approach to their instruments. Put together, there is a chemistry that inspire and drive their improvisations towards a wide range of soundscapes. the choice of instruments and sounds on their palette allows them to dramatically change their music between beat driven electro, minimal and microtonal improvisation via electroacoustic experimentation and nujazz. Now joined by master improvising percussionist Fairclough for this third album, there is something for all in their music and, first and foremost, an enjoyment of sound and performance, which carries across and touch their audience, whatever the style they may adopt.

Third Opening is recorded with an almost forensic focus on the small detail within the sound, revealing a seething quantum world of sound just under the surface.

CD A - mainly abstract, some rhythms.
CD B - mainly rhythm, some abstraction.
