NIMA Presents: Duo Philippe Guidat / Pascal Rollando @ The Underground
November 7, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$10 - $15
With this project, the guitarist Philippe Guidat and the percussionist Pascal Rollando wanted to reconnect with the natural acoustic characteristics of their instruments : guitar and percussions
The repertoire is exclusively made of original compositions, mixing strict writing and wide improvisations. In a desire to respect the nature and the language of the instruments, the influences are mainly from the Mediterranean basin, but also open on the colors of jazz and contemporary music. Rhythms, modes and harmonies refer to their own cultures (flamenco, Andalusian and Arabic music, Indian music …) but always distorted from their original context to serve creative music. In this dialogue the two musicians go in search of all the sounds of their instruments using conventional techniques, personal explorations and technical experiments to propose a wide range of stamps and nuances.
Attending a performance of the duo is traveling in an imaginary world with accents ranging from Spain to India, enjoying a wide variety of sound colors, aesthetics, nuances and different atmospheres.
