State of Monc operates on the thin line that divides electronic music from a more acoustic approach. Integrating the rigid sound of computers with the flexibility of acoustic instruments. Acknowledged by an increasing fine establishment of international jazz trend watchers State of Monc is seen as the Dutch answer to Eric Truffaz - 'however more colorful', and Nils Petter Molvaer - 'only more exciting and raw' (Edo Dijksterhuis - NRC Handelsblad). Inspired by legendary experimental jazz musicians as Miles Davis, core State of Monc contributors, which are Arthur Flink (trumpet), Hielke Praagman (button pusher and knob turner), Kasper Kalf (double bass), Paul de Jong (guitar) and Arthur Lijten (drums), presented their debut album 'Hand to Mouth' last year, which was a "hot bun" for weeks in the hottest music stores everywhere.
