Electro acoustical system
Kairos* duet, formed by violinist and composer JD and recorder and composer DV improvises freely and independently of any aestheticism; electro acoustical processing enables them to unfold their playing and their instrumental expression.
In complicity with each other, the two performers do not hesitate to venture into all sorts of possibilities within a system which deliberately expands thanks to the voice, the synthesizer or the sampler. Between essence and substance, physical and technological, by using changing multi-faceted games of mirrors, they try to surprise and rejoice each other and they constantly renew a form of organic writing in real time.
Expanding into a trio for Stimmung, Kairos is enthusiastic for all forms of vocal music and explores renewed music and sound universes.
* In Greek mythology, Kairos (or Caerus) is the god of opportunity and favourable moment. He is often represented as a young man with a thick tuft of hair of the forehead, the back of head being bald. He can be seized by the hair when he is racing by. But once he has passed by, no one can grasp him. Kairos’s time is an amazing and fleeting instant in the smooth flow of clock time, which has to be identified and seized, in order to achieve what is most important to us.
