Peacock Tree

3 winds and a double bass,
meditative jazz fusion.

Their whole being was intensely present in the music, the sound, the space. Insisting and demanding full attention. Vulnerable and intimate. Honest and strong! The music complex in its simplicity, different layer that became a whole. Remember I thought: Wow! I’m listening to very different live music and rarely get really touched. But this being, you helped conjure up the physical and spiritual space – it did something to me.” – Frank Rudolph, a listener

Music inspired by deep forests in the autumn, the city in the middle of the night, pictures mirrored on the lake surface, silence of a winter morning, landscape behind the train window and behind the window of your own eyes…

Žofie Kašparová (CZ) -flute, bass clarinet

Peacock Tree is a project of the Czech flute player, bass clarinet player and composer Žofie Kašparová who has lived in Gothenburg, Sweden for five years. When she started this band, she decided, that for the band she will choose the people regardless of instruments. People, who she loves to play and work with. That created this unusual setting and also a fun challenge for the composition and arrangement. 

In her music Žofie makes a fusion of the many genres and styles that she has been through – from western classical music, through jazz, minimalism, Arabic rhythms to Scandinavian traditional music.
