duo guerra / kakaliagou
The Chilean multidisciplinary artist Matias Guerra and the french horn player Elena Kakaliagou from Greece, started their musical collaboration in the summer of 2014 at the “Hotel Pupik” residency in Austria. The unique approach to their instruments, electric guitar and french horn, creates a subtle and minimalistic sound, where the instrumental colors and individual tales merge to a level of non-definition. The musical character of the duo builds up with the use of electronics and extended techniques, inspired by various musical instruments and genres like classical music, jazz and folk. The two musicians create drones and soundscapes, free jazz and chaotic moments that lead through melodies and exact communication to a intensive and fine music performance, presented in concert and art spaces like “Uncool” CH and “Spektrum” DE.
