Embracing each concert as a unique moment unto itself, Rosenwinkel, Janusonis and Motzer opt to forego premeditated performance practice. For Bandit65, every show starts as a blank slate from which compositions arise and develop with free and spontaneous flow. The seven tracks on Searching the Continuum are journeys that unfold and spiral to otherworldly heights, evoking deep emotional resonances and abstract-yet-palpable moods. Rosenwinkel, Janusonis, and Motzer exhibit a rare and uncanny interconnectedness as Bandit 65. In releasing Searching the Continuum these maestros have given the world an album of ethereal beauty, sonic vistas that are truly a wonder to behold.
Heartcore Records Founder and CEO Kurt Rosenwinkel first heard Janusonis and Motzer play together in 2008. “That’s when I had the idea to play with them,” he fondly remembers. “Finally, we had a jam session in Philadelphia and Bandit65 was born. We discovered that the music was creating itself as the three of us improvised and it seemed like it was coming out fully formed. So that’s what we always do, we just listen, and explore, improvising together and find deep worlds of music.”
