" I had the great pleasure of making the video portrait of Patrick Autréaux, author in residence at Passa Porta. Patrick Autréaux (1968) practiced emergency psychiatry until 2006. He is the author of numerous articles on art and literature, and about a dozen books in which he examines the links between medicine and literature. He lives between Paris and Cambridge, USA In France, his work is available at editions gallimard and editions verdier."

"Yamen blendt westerse en oosterse klanken met zijn trompet, net zoals Otto op zijn zelf ineen geknutselde contrabas voor de nodige diepgang zorgt. Maris zorgt dan met zijn accordeon voor een zigeunereske sfeer. Knap!"

"Yamen blends western and eastern sounds with his trumpet, just as Otto provides the necessary depth on his self-assembled double bass. Maris then creates a gipsy-esque atmosphere with his accordion."

"Jazz van de bovenste plank. De band 3’Ain heeft met ‘Sea of stories’ een heel fraai debuutalbum uitgebracht. De muzikanten Yamen Martini (trompet), Piet Maris (accordeon) en Otto Kint (contrabas) zorgen voor een intense en boeiende luistetrip met knappe en aanstekel k muziek die niet toevallig in Oostende is opgenomen."

"Jazz of the highest order. With "Sea of stories", the band 3'Ain has released a very good first album. Musicians Yamen Martini (trumpet), Piet Maris (accordion) and Otto Kint (double bass) offer an intense and captivating journey with intelligent and infectious music that was not recorded in Ostend by chance ."
