ENSEMBLES

DUOSIGNAL

ALEJANDRO OLIVÁN - saxophone

ADRIÁN ALBALADEJO DÍAZ - trombone

After several years of collaborations and performances sharing stage in different chamber music groups and festivals, like ZeitRäume Basel, Impuls Academy Graz, Nachtstrom Basel or New Studios Concerts at the Musik Akademie Basel, the saxophonist Alejandro Oliván and the trombonist Adrián Albaladejo, both residents in Basel, decided to start a new project as a duo.

Duosignal has a solid and extended repertoire, from transcriptions of early music until new compositions using electronics and video. For Duosignal, each concert has a different meaning, and they adapt his repertoire in order to explote the possibilities of the room space, the timing and the context. One of the most important objectives of the duo is the creation of new music for this instrumentation through the collaboration with young composers.

 TACTUS PROJECT

JOSÉ LUIS INGLÉS - clarinet

ADRIÁN ALBALADEJO DÍAZ - trombone

KATARINA LESKOVAR- cello

ASIA AHMETJANOVA-piano

NUÑO FERNÁNDEZ EZQUERRA - artistic director 

Tactus Project was founded in 2019 by a group of musicians from different nationalities and residing in Switzerland, who came together to commission, premiere, record, explore and innovate under an exhaustive work.

The basic quartet composed of clarinet, trombone, cello and piano constitutes an unusual combination which allows to explore new sonorities, perform the scarce number of pieces written for this ensemble and commission new music for this combination. The addition of a sound engineer as a basic part of the team is a declaration of the importance we want to give to media and how relevant role we consider it has in contemporaneity.
