In/Escrit at Oso Estudio

 

Here is an extract from Duet Claudàtor‘s In/Escrit at Oso Estudio (Barcelona) on 30/01/2016 .

In this video, we perform an improvised movement which transitions from the 4th movement of Ravel’s Sonata to Hosokawa’s Duo for Violin and Cello.

We’ve left a tiny bit of the written movements to give you an idea of what we were transitioning between.

Empty garage II

 

There’s been some debate as to the title of this track. The space which we recorded in is technically not a garage. It’s a small factory underneath a house. It is what used to be the workshop attached to some sort of store in Mataró. So, perhaps this would be better described as “Out-of-Service Workshop II”. What do you think?

Here it is for your listening pleasure, the free improvised piece by Duet Claudàtor (Sarah Claman and Pau Sola), Empty Garage II.

La Metamorfosis

Duet Claudàtor + Agustí Martínez

 

At TePeKaleSOUND on February 23rd 2016, Pau Sola and myself (Duet Claudàtor) had the pleasure of collaborating with Agustí Martínez (saxophone) in what we call Música Km0; a free improvised segment with a collaborator from the place we perform at, something un-rehearsed and spontaneous.

BCN impro fest

 

On Tuesday night at the Sala Fènix in Barcelona I joined forces with Clara Lai (piano), Almudena Vega (flute) and Ilona Schneider (voice) in what was a magical set of free improvised pieces.

Here’s the first review from A Jazz Noise of the night and a second one of the festival in its entirety from Jazz Journal.
