„Hope Map“ was recorded at Jazzkeller Treptow in Berlin in Autumn 1996 starting off a one week German/Austrian tour. Ignaz Schick had just moved to Berlin a year before and this line-up was one of his first regular working groups in Berlin which in contrast to his Munich trio Decollage 3 focussed entirely on free improvisation. He had met East-Berlin bass player Matthias Bauer and Australian drummer Tony Buck (who had also just moved from Amsterdam to Berlin) that same year and performed several on and off gigs with both of them in different constellations. Forming an acoustic working band with such experienced and skilled players felt natural and was an important move forward. Schick soon after this first tour started to focus mostly on his electronic work and his saxophone performances become more rare events. You can hear that at this point and for his young age he was a talented and promising player with a strong melodic sense. The music of the trio is strictly improvised even though you might think that some sections sound like composed or pre-structured. Achieving such interplay in an open situation is only possible with such masterful and generous musicians like Tony Buck and Matthias Bauer. It is a pity that this trio disbanded soon after. Even more so we are excited that we found this beautiful document in the archive and that we can finally present it to a wider audience.
