Violeta García is a cellist, composer and curator from Buenos Aires, Argentina. She performs in many art forms including free improvisation, contemporary and trans-media experimental repertoire in violoncello and electronic music. In 2015 she founded a digital label and music series called TVL-REC, which is devoted to publishing new music, experimental groups and collectives from Latin America and organizing shows and festivals of noise and extreme music in Latin America and Europe.
Brice Catherin willingly stepped away from the contemporary music institutions in order to very freely develop a few activities: multi-instrumental cellist, improviser, composer and art performer. These activities feed into each another, so that beyond his multidisciplinary shows and improvised concerts, Brice has never stopped composing and premiering written pieces. Most of his recent projects explore the idea of democracy in art: the artists’ individual responsibilities and their place in the social group, as well as those of the members of the audience, are challenged and questioned.
Violeta and Brice brought their cello visions together for a freely improvised joint effort. Their first album as a duo is a unique trip of noise and extended string techniques in an immersive, dark winter. Fog, wood, and love surround these two Libra October-born, beautiful, humans.
