DUO ERB - LORIOT
Christoph Erb saxophones
Frantz Loriot viola
This seems to be the most suitable way to describe what is going on here:
their music is free, definitely improvised. There's no boundries. Exploring sound and structure, harmony and disharmony. No wonder that this sounds... bulky, eruptive, at times brutal, at times irritating, seldom calm or soothing. Though, at least it’s never unspectacular, halfhearted or ill-considered.
With CHRISTOPH ERB on tenor and soprano saxophone and FRANTZ LORIOT on viola, they establish a double-entente based on the listening to the other, the exploration of the unknown and the vertigo of the moment.
The duo released its debut CD Sceneries in April 2016, on the Portuguese label Creative Sources.
