Artist Statement:


    B(I)(e)(e)(n)ding(s) is an on-going process based project, presented in Durban as a trio (Luca Forcucci, Cara Stacey and Mpho Molikeng) based on experiences and collaborations conducted by Luca Forcucci during last two years and a half in Southern Africa (Mozambique, South Africa and Swaziland). The performance merges ancestral and contemporary technology. This includes field recordings collected in the Limpopo region at the border of Botswana. The trio proposes an exploration of bows and wind instruments within an electroacoustic context. Partially written, the collaboration dedicates a big part to improvisation and live composition. The core idea relates to an hybrid form merging Southern African virtuosic instruments techniques, live composition, electroacoustic music technology and collaboration.
