Rawfishboys is the binding factor between Belgian reed player Joachim Badenhorst and French bassist Brice Soniano. They meet each other in their early twenties and recognize the complementary of both their persons, and of their instruments. They practice together weekly, and even daily, and they experiment for hours with melody, timbre, composition, phrasing, timing, interpretation and poetry.
Gradually they built their own repertoire with compositions and improvisations, which led to the recording of their first album War in 2004. This album is a blueprint for all the trailing work of both musicians and sounds today – more than ten years later – still fresh and crisp.
In 2008 Rawfishboys took the concept album Piano works / Piano worksnt on, built around compositions by pianists such as Enrico Pieranunzi and Harmen Fraanje. Joachim and Brice made music in the meantime further into each other’s projects (Carate Urio Orchestra, Brice Soniano’s Beyond Time…) and in 2015 worked on a new repertoire for Rawfishboys, which they presented at the Belgian Jazz Meeting.
