ON A TIGHTROPE
FREE PLAYING AT OWN RISK

This is jazz only from an open and inclusive conception of what jazz can mean. In words by Bill Frisell, a way of connecting with and transforming what surrounds us.

Nguyên Lê says that a musician should be himself at the most when he plays. That is what I strive for, humbly assuming that I am nothing more than that, but not less either. I devotedly submit myself to the ritual of the concert, hoping to experience a state of liberation through music that, according to Keith Jarret, not even the greatest musicians achieve for more than a few brief moments at a time.If you would lend me your complicity, maybe today we can share some of those moments.

ON A TIGHTROPE  brings together a rich background of elements from classical music, flamenco, modal jazz and the so-called drone music (built on one single chord) common to Celtic music, Gregorian chant, medieval music and the ragas of Indian music.

ON A TIGHTROPE  is based on a collection of short melodies set in scores that work as templates for both solo and band performance. Compositions and structures designed to be just starting and meeting points. A framework of sense and confidence intended to be left behind in each new performance, assuming responsibility and risk.

ON A TIGHTROPE is an intimist proposal made for a contemporary audience expecting more than entertainment. Faces in each concert the challenge of being always creating new music in real time. A path traced with own steps, but inspired by musicians such as Keith Jarret, Bill Frisell, Ralph Towner or Nguyên Lê. A music conceived to be developed both as a soloist and supported by a solid rhythm section.
