Omer Govreen (Israel), Adrián Moncada (Spain) and Nino Baleyte (France) a.k.a. Garden Crack came to study in Amsterdam because of their interest in its improvisation scene and its rich tradition stemming out of the ICP (Instant Composers Pool).

Omer and Adrian met in Amsterdam in 2016. Ever since they had their first conversation they knew they were kindred spirits and that they would collaborate together. But it wasn’t till they meet Nino in 2018 that they decided to put Garden Crack together.

In 2019, they released their first album with the name: “Aleph”. A reference to the infinite microcosmos from the short story of the Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges.

Collaborating with Michael Moore in 2021, one of the prominent musicians in the Amsterdam scene, they consider a highlight. The result of that, was the album “Lapis Lazuli”, released with dutch label ZenneZ Records on January 2023. With this album they hope to build a bridge between Amsterdam's improvisational legacy and its future.

The trio has performed in several venues from the Netherlands such as: Hermitage Amsterdam, Roode Bioscoop, Roze Tanker, De Ruimte and Splendor.
