Two breaths from two different worlds of music

Czech musical project relating saxophon and australian didgeridoo. Its dialogue between wood and metal, etnic and european sophisticated music tradition, man and woman. Crashing genre borders of jazz – funky – world music.

Both instruments have a low frequency. They both carry pensiveness and depth but their tones firmly intertwine and rise into the higher harmonic levels. Pilnaj plays an Australian didgeridoo as a European experienced in the rhythm of the Indian tabla, and his phrasing develops along with his breath. He makes his own instruments. Žižkovská plays the melodies of the nonexistant songs on her baritone saxophone and we can hear something like a reminiscence of jazz now and then. The authenticity of the sound is emphasized by their rhythmic breathing. The music develop through countermovements, balance and merging.
