Daniele Fabris and Laura Agnusdei are two Italian musicians who met in The Netherlands, at the The Institute of Sonology in The Hague. They started a collaborative project based on Laura’s saxophone playing and Daniele’s experience as sound researcher and creative coder. Their live performances are focused on real time processing and spatializing the sound of the sax, using digital devices coded by Fabris himself to mold, sculpt and generate ethereal sonorities. Despite her classical background, Laura’s playing is inspired by free improvisation and involves different extended techniques. Indeed the duo explores the boundaries between electronic and acoustic domains, interchanging roles, and searching for new ways of interactions that challenge common stereotypes of electroacoustic music. Inspired by Musique Concrète and Computer Music, their repertoire combines the emotional power of melody with soundscapes evocative of experimental ambient music and balanced between gestures and abstraction, density and rarefaction, noise and lyricism. In June 2021 their first EP “Riflessi” was released by Russian label Stellage and dutch visual artist Max van Der Wal composed a video for the single “Specchi” that matches perfectly with the duo’s aesthetic merging analog films with digital algorithms. Since 2017 they performed in festival and venues like, among others, Gaudeamus Festival (NL), roBOt Festival (IT) and STEIM (NL).
