Species Break is the culmination of a deep understanding of jazz and a desire to mesh the ideas of two distinct musicians. It is a creative exploration of sound within the tradition–but not bound by it. Inspired by uncomfortable desks, quiet humming of tunes between music theory lectures, and an emotional connection rooted in jazz and improvisation, Schuyler Asplin and Remy Morritt formed Species Break, a duo project that is as explosive as it is introspective. The two play standards with improvisation, as well as original compositions featuring drums and trumpet, opening the stage to other musicians as well to dance within their world.
