Gratkowski / Tramontana “Instant Songs”

Frank Gratkowski (D) as, cl, bcl, cbcl
Sebi Tramontana ( I ) trombone

“Instant songs” might be the best way to describe what Sebastiano Tramontana and Frank Gratkowski play in their duo performances. The music is improvised but sounds very composed and each piece has it’s own unique character. Some of them have beautiful melodies, other include the voices of the players or using extended techniques like multiphonics and noise. Some are very romantic, some very abstract. But it’s all about the musical dialog and the instant composition of songs. What both player love in that duo is that the music is very different from the other projects they are involved in. Don’t miss the chance to hear them live!
