Duo Lockett/La Luce

This surprising encounter between two composers/multi-instrumentalists Alessio La Luce and Mark Lockett, follows a flow of ideas and obsessions, like the confluence of the two rivers, the Loire and the Vienne, their adopted territory. Instinctively averse to pigeonholing, Alessio La Luce from Sicily has worked in many different theatrical and visual arts collaborations, in chamber music ensembles, tango groups and free jazz. Around soprano sax, piano, keyboards, cello, percussion, and electronics their music mixes free improvisation, tango, minimalism and soundtracks for silent films. If geography has any bearing on style, then perhaps the renowned English humour and sang-froid combined with Italian romanticism is part of that universe.
