Silvia Tarozzi & Deborah Walker Duo



Silvia Tarozzi & Deborah Walker Duo

Silvia Tarozzi (violin) and Deborah Walker (cello) are actively involved in the fields of contemporary experimental music and free improvisation. Together with French composer Pascale Criton they have been exploring microtonal extended techniques and gestural processes on a violin and a cello tuned in 1/16 of a tone. The compositions that have resulted from this process challenge the sense of form and the attitude of interpretation, transforming it into a creative process.
