Marc Alberto (bass & altsax) & Bart van Dongen (piano)
11 Dec 2018 - 12 Dec 2018Free
Marc Alberto meets Bart van Dongen in an improvised duet for saxophone and piano.
The concert is recorded to make a CD of it.
The work of saxophonist / composer Marc Alberto (1990) is a reflection of his mixed cultural – and professional – background and is characterized by the fusion of influences such as minimal, jazz, early electronica, dance, impro,
sound and performance art.
His special sound and often unorthodox playing technique physically demands the utmost of his instruments and body, without virtuosity ever being a goal in itself. The result; an open sound world in which acoustic-electronic becomes one and minimal improvisations continue to unfold kaleidoscopically.
Bart van Dongen (1959), composer, musician and conceptual artist: ‘A constant in his work is that composition, improvisation and concept are always a trinity. […] The action on the spot therefore forms an important part of his art. ” Bart van Dongen is the initiator of various projects that all have one thing in common: a search for new music or at least new sounds. He excludes nothing and rejects nothing; he knows how to connect and encourage seemingly opposing forces.
