Sessions in the Forest – Almudena González and Luiz Rocha

Almudena González – flute
Luiz Rocha – clarinet

Campania, Italy – Summer 2016

Just before heading to Free Flow Festival, where we had a couple of gigs, we stopped by a pine forest in South Italy to record the video below.

The idea of the this video was to let the woods speak,  to listen and respond accordingly, and let character of the ambience to be sensed.

Some days later we’ve played at a sort of cave in Matera – Basilicata, where the spot itself wouldn’t speak, yet it replied to us out loud. Here’s a recording during the sound check.

Watch the video at the woods, then listen to the recording at the cave.

Almudena González – Luiz Rocha | DUO Live at Matera

This is a recording while checking the acoustics before our concert at the Free Flow Festival in Matera, South Italy.

We’re playing at a Sassi di Matera, in a cave that in the past was used to store goods for making wine. This place has an amazing acoustic, a lot of resonance and quite balanced frequencies. All the reverberation you’ll listen here is natural of the cave.

This was Nocturna Discordia #60 and the 4th free improvisation jam at Soda Acústic and, wow, what a big crew showed up this Wednesday, there were a total of 28 musicians including the opening trio! Was it for the flyer??

Once more the groups were formed randomly, but this time the possibilities ranged from duo to quintet, picking the performer’s names out of my pocket. That was cool but, for sure, gotta perfect the formula when there’s such a crowd willing to play…

The opening trio was

Patxi Valera – drums
Nuno Rebelo – electric guitar
Luiz Rocha – clarinets

And the jamming musicians were

Pablo Rega – electric guitar
Gabriel González – drums
Ariel Zutel – hang
Pablo Vazquez – electric bass

Pau Sola – cello
El Pricto – alto sax and piano
Ilona Schneider – voice
Eitamar – electric guitar
Bernat Giribet – piano
Mariano Caramasa – piano
