Fred Frith & Susana Santos Silva

„Laying demons To Rest“

This duo has been a long time coming. After crossing paths at a workshop in Porto in 2011, Susana has been involved in several of Fred’s projects. First of all in a quartet with Chris Cutler and Heike Liss in Zagreb; then as a soloist, along with Okkyung Lee, Lotte Anker, and Christine Wodrascka, in TaTaTa with the Hessische Rundfunk Big Band; and more recently touring with the Fred Frith Trio and Heike Liss in Brazil, Europe and the USA. When the Météo Festival proposed the duo it felt like a logical next step, and the Radio France recording of this first concert, subsequently released on the Rogu’Art label, received rave reviews. This tour will be a chance for Fred and Susana to further develop their deep rapport and investigate the infinite potential of a rather unusual instrumental pairing.
