Erica Bisesi (piano), 
Nicola Baroni (cello)
Special guest Yati Durant (composer & electronics) 

Music / Sun 22 May / 6.30PM

A truly original project of contemporary music influenced by and combined with Indian traditions and improvisation. Giusy Caruso is a concert pianist and a post-doc artist-researcher at the Antwerp Conservatory. She'll perform her RE-ORIENT PROJECT in duo with Francesco Magarò (percussions). The two performers will be then joined by the XTREME ENSEMBLE: the pianist Erica Bisesithe cellist Nicola Baroni and the electronic music composer Yati Durant. Come along and explore something quite different.

This concert brings on stage an encounter between two ensemble musically and ideally located in two opposite sides: at the East and at the very South. 

The Re-Orient Duo project, created by Giusy Caruso (piano) and Francesco Magarò, (percussion), presents a fusion between original improvisations on ragas and talas and a selection of the 72 Études for piano by the French composer Jacques Charpentier (1933-2017), based on the carnatic modes from South India. 

The XTREME ensemble, composed by Erica Bisesi (piano) and Nicola Baroni (cello) will take the audience on an audio-visual voyage around the Antarctica with original pieces by Massimiliano Messieri, Mauricio Dottori, Marco Giommoni and  Marcela Pavia.

The world premiere Saundaryalahari written by the composer Yati Durant for the unique encounter of these two ensembles, will create audio-visual interactions, stimulating a reorientation of significance, in which musicians and audiences all lose track of the North Star.
