Duthoit, Isabelle / Georg Graewe
Parlance

Duthoit, Isabelle / Georg Graewe: Parlance (Nuscope)

Label: Nuscope    
Released in: USA    


"According to Marc Chenard's liner notes, "The musicians here have clearly made their choices, for they have chosen to work beyond the usual contingencies, and set up their own free-associative interactions as their modus operandi."

Classically-trained Isabelle Duthoit works with various ensembles and composers, primarily in the world of free improvisation. Using her voice, she has developed a unique singing technique, and to that end has sung in improvised solo settings and in duet with Phil Minton. In 2008, she was a resident at the Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto (Japan) to perform a solo vocal performance in relation to the sound world of Noh and Bunraku theater. From 1995 to 2005, she has been committed to the creation and improvised music by creating Fruits Festival Mhère "fields of improvisation" with Jacques Di Donato. Since 1997, she has taught clarinet and improvisation at the Conservatoire Departmental Evry in Essonne, France.

Pianist Georg Graewe began composing and performing professionally at the age of 15. He has since been leading a variety of ensembles - ranging from trio to chamber orchestra formats - which have involved some of the leading instrumentalists in contemporary music. His compositions, which include chamber music and works for full orchestra as well as scores for films, theatre productions, radio drama, and video, have been performed and broadcast around the world."-Nuscope

His compositions, which include chamber music and works for full orchestra as well as scores for films, theater productions, radio drama, and video, have been performed and broadcast around the world.

Graewe has had a long-standing trio with Dutch cellist Ernst Reijseger and US-based percussionist Gerry Hemingway since 1989. He has also performed and/or recorded with Anthony Braxton, Evan Parker, Dave Douglas, Phil Minton, Roscoe Mitchell, Barry Guy, Barre Phillips, Hamid Drake, John Butcher, Robert Dick, John Butcher, Mark Dresser among others.

Over the last 10 years, he has also written three operas. Kopenhagen (based on the same-titled play by Michael Frayn) was produced by OPER KÖLN (Cologne Opera House) in 2003. His second opera, Quicksilver, (a commission by Semperoper Dresden) came out in November 2006. And his most recent opera, Barbara Strozzi oder die Avantgarde der Liebe, was staged by Theater Luzern in Switzerland in 2010 and Oper Bonn in Germany in 2011.

Since 1999, Graewe has been closely associated with CNMAT (Center for New Music and Audio Technology) at UC Berkeley. From 2002 - 2007, he taught at Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin.

In 2010, Graewe curated a series of 27 events that presented different aspects of resonance between music, poetry, visual arts, and science as part of the European Cultural Capital RUHR 2010. A catalogue plus DVD edition documenting this project has been published on his own Random Acoustics label."
