Playdate invites you to the autumn season opening at Landmark on 21 September. This evening you will hear the duo Pip and Andrea Giordano.
Pip weaves elongated soundscapes. Clean-tuned harmonics, noises and slow melodies become music where the listener can both indulge and actively explore the sonorous elements of the sound. The duo has been playing together since 2006 and has since then explored different approaches to improvisation and collective composition. In 2019, they released the album Possible Worlds on SOFA Music. Here, a large number of instruments are played simultaneously and intertwine into an hour-long sonorous world. Possible Worlds is constantly developing and it is this music that the duo presents this evening at Playdate.
Torstein Lavik Larsen – trumpet, electronics
Fredrik Rasten – guitars
