“Malkuth” means “realm”, the plane of reality where we live, here on Earth – the ever iridescent world where we laugh, cry, destroy and rebuild, where we give shape to our lives by improvising and reacting. Many cosmogonies tell of a primordial vibration from which everything comes. We gravitate, just like the planets, around our own axis and interact with others, with the sun at the center as the source of life at the heart of the organism. Everything significantly and effectively interacts with everything else. Everything is consciously or unconsciously substance and exchange. Infinite possibilities are the result. This is what the music of Malkuth aspires to be.
Malkuth's sound and the music finds shape through a process of natural improvisational based on mutual listening and dialogue between five musicians who have metabolized the language and practice of 1960s Jazz. Tunes gradually materialize from silence to rythmic, harmonic and melodic centers; an itinerary which develops collectively. The instrument voices are warm, never harsh or cynic – always tending to share narrative meaning.
