Press Text
In this live project we reinterpret XXth century famous musical themes through electroacoustic improvisation (electric guitar & laptop).

Soundscape, remix, jam session.

The main concept of Leitmotiv Duo is to explore the multiple relationships existing among musical fragments composed in different ages and put later in the same extemporary structure.

A transcendental connection of the themes through times is obtained playing with montage, arrangement, sonority and improvisation, and creates a lively time-space continuum.

.. from Debussy to Nirvana, from Daft Punk to Satie, from Queen to Manu Chao, from Vangelis to Led Zeppelin…

The Duo rises from the "LEITMOTIV - Trekking musicale nel parco" experience, a musical walk in natural unexplored places of our cities. Realized by TR Idee Lab for Tempo Reale (Firenze).
