When Bart Maris, Jan Klare, Wilbert de Joode and Michael Vatcher founded the band 1000 - the predeccesor of this sextett-version -  in 2004, they immediately started playing compositions, that were originally not designed as vehicles for improvisation - thus establishing an own distinctive style.

The way the band created structure through improvising, impressed the critics („consistently interesting quartet that keeps evolving and getting better with each release." Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery). Through many years an almost telepathic communication was developed – an intuitive language, that fluently balances texture with energy and subtlety.

2000 deepens this „art" and widens it onto chamber-musical fields.

The band 1000 has gone through many musical developments since it was founded in 2004 by Jan Klare, Bart Maris, Wilbert de Joode and Michael Vatcher. It actually started playing compositions mainly from the classical world by composers like Wagner Bach or Monteverdi, combined with some originals by Klare.
Although composition was always a crucial element in their music, the way these four players improvised together was the prominent impressive side of the quartet. („consistently interesting quartet that keeps evolving and getting better with each release." Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery). Through the years 1000 developed a very intuitive, almost telepathic musical language with an enormous instinct for form and structure.

When drummer Vatcher left to New York City in 2017 the band was shaken. After so many years of building and interaction there was no chance to replace Michael and just continue, on the other hand none of the remaining three wanted to put an end to this. As a quartett 1000 will perform with Elisabeth Coudoux (cello).
An invitation to the Moers festival 2018 and demand of some bookers pushed 1000 back into action – for the festival Jan Klare invented 2000 – a six piece edition including Elisabeth Coudoux on cello, Steve Swell on trombone and Michael Vatcher again.
