RESEARCH


Bruno has an ongoing research project at the The Royal Conservatory of Music in Aarhus, Denmark. 

The visionary project deals with complex yet musical rhythmic structures that prompt creativity by the means of improvisation and freedom of "not playing".


The performer is thus gently forced to keep focus on the given rhythmical structure whilst having the freedom to improvise anything that the rhythmic structure flow suggest and due to obmission of any harmonic and melodic reference.


Nevertheless the research embraces any ongoing idea that rise during the performance and rehearsal of the material. The actual working band consist of a doublebass, trumpet, altosax, drums, vibraphone and piano. Soon it will be implemented with two cellos and further with other instruments from the classical world.


Eventually will the project be finalized in a ten musicians ensemble where both the classical and rhythmical musician will collectively improvise a fresh, exciting and unexpected new music.
