Bergljot experiments with a strict and minimalist approach of very slow development with special focus on richness of sound, reminiscent of The Necks, sunn o))), Concern or Barn Owl. They use a toy synth, various electric organs, field recordings and found sounds as well as Max/ppooll in their music.
The band has received favorable reviews and has played at festivals such as Jazz Fest Brno, Natt Jazz Bergen, Koktebel Jazz Festival and Jazzinec Trutnov, as well as venues in France, Sweden, Poland, Ukraine, Austria Germany, Slovakia, Norway and Czech Republic.

„The piano sounds like harp, toy, marimba, machine … the spirit of John Cage was definitely somewhere near the place. The trio engages in dialogue that is beyond any genre of music, beyond most traditional views on what is called music actually.“ - (Free) Jazz Alchemist Blog

Škvíry & spoje make use of repetitive minimalist grooves, where each player adds a sound layer to the previous one almost imperceptibly, and together they build up meditative or trancelike simple patterns into dense, hypnotic performances. The quartet originated before climbing Baranec mountain (2184m), the third highest peak of the West Tatras.

Dalibor Kocián - vibraphone
Jozef Krupa - drums
Michal Matějka - electric guitar
Petr Vrba - trumpet, clarinet
