Studio improvisations on guitar & viola from NYC, and then live improvisations augmented by electronics in Geneva from two unique and impressive improvisers.

Sharp, Elliott / Hug, Charlotte

Sharp, Elliott / Hug, Charlotte: pi:k (Emanem)
Label: Emanem    
Released in: Great Britain    

"First meeting in Zurich in my SyndaKit orchestra - Charlotte a blonde explosion of sound and energy, bow and mane merging to form an intense granulation of sight and sound. Soon, our duos followed: no two the same; both electronic and acoustic, myriad strategies. Pixillated, angular, tangential in the best sense. Potentialities abound!


Artistic antipodeans possessed with insatiable curiosity and enormous joy in making music. Three weeks before the recordings in New York, Elliott became the father of twins, I was on a long tour, little sleep, lots of ristretto, intensive exchange of ideas. Our different artistic backgrounds amalgamate, inspiring fertile musical testing of limits. Both musicians contribute their very own respective musical-intellectual worlds. Wide, high-energy fields open out.


September 22 Duo with Charlotte Hug - Cave 12 - Genève. A return to this great basement space, packed to witness my meeting with Swiss violist Charlotte Hug. We do a hot and wide-ranging set. We have extremely different approaches which yields a continuous textural counterpoint, though when Charlotte uses her electronics, it's sometimes difficult to tell who is making which sound, making for an exhilarating set."-from sleeve notes
