SEARCHING FOR MANAGEMENT
We started our collaboration a few years ago. We used to perform in several bands together, and we quickly realised that musically we disagree in many regards. And it’s been this very difference that has become the foundation for our new project.
Our duo searches for the future in the echoes of the past, by utilising the present. We play energetic and fast-paced music, but we don’t avoid the ambient and complexities of IDM (Intelligent Dance Music).
We combine the potentials of instruments and devices typical for electronic music (such as sequencers, samplers, synths with various effects) with the liveliness and dynamism of the sound of acoustic drums. Our exploration results in a surprising, energetic mixture that smoothly puts a listener in a kind of positive, musical trance, musical adventure, and unique experience.
Each of our concerts has a particular structure. We shape some aspects of its form, while the content that fulfils it sometimes comes as a surprise.
How’s that possible? Well, we love to fall into the depths of improvisation, lapsing into various musical worlds.
