Press reviews

The Märkische Allgemeine writes on October 23, 2006 under “An evening bursting with musicality”:
“The musical style is an extract from all possible directions of the past and present with a particular preference for the minimal music of Philip Glass or Steve Reich . The suitability of the accordion as a drum was also often explored or enriching sound effects were achieved with light hits on the microphone. "

The Potsdamer Latest News wrote on 23 October 2006 at the same concert in "Pretty loud silence":
"With his virtuoso motor keys Dance fills, Motion Trio 'a previously open musical gap. Janusz Woitarowicz, Pawel Baranek and Marcin Galazyn, who play on ' squeeze chests ' from the famous Italian workshop Pigini, started a successful revolution on the bellows . "
