Gestalt is the Platypus Ensemble’s second release.
It was recorded by Peter Bulkens in his Antwerp Studio ‘Groove’.
In the middle of a Germany tour during October 2002, the band took a break to drive up to Antwerp and spend a day in the studio.
The recording reflects the liveliness of a working band in full swing.
One of Hille’s compositions on this recording, an intricate composition by the name of ‘Tango Morbido Y Cinico’, was to win the international composition competition Scrivere in Jazz in Italy, in 2008.
Many a critic has chosen this album to be his favorite Platypus Ensemble recording.
