O'culto da Ajuda | Lisboa



If we assume that it is possible to read “between the lines”, it should also be possible to “hear between the sounds” - 


The above quartet, consisting of violinist Carlos Zíngaro, saxophonist Franziska Schroeder, pianist Pedro Rebelo and cellist Ulrich Mitzlaff, attempts to bring to the foreground the intricate and subtle sounds that occupy this in-between space. Every musician begins from his/her own sound imagination in order to create a musical discourse which echoes in the fantasies of the listeners and their individual perception of sounds.


The quartet creates music that doesn’t necessarily conform to the “status quo” and the expectations of how to play and how to listen. The spontaneous compositions are derived from each of the musician's highly individual musical backgrounds, embracing contemporary erudite music, composition, free jazz and free improvisation.


In this way, the concert represents a genre of music that is constructed through the crafting of sound textures and spontaneous musical interplays, the use of extended techniques and non-idiomatic events, as well as through fragmentation of idiomatic affirmations, expressive dynamics, which contrast with silence as an integral compositional element.


The quartet plays with these musical opposites and ambivalences in order to surprise the listeners, while attempting to exceed sonar boundaries to open up further understandings of musical ideas and idioms.
