about

Intakt CD 058

There are definite similarities in the musical background and progression of the two young artists Sylvie Courvoisie and Lucas Niggli. Both are born in 1968. Both attended the Conservatory as well as jazz school. Both finally left these institutions behind, choosing a more personalised apprenticeship with a teacher, who over the years was also to become a musical partner. Today Lucas Niggli performs in various bands with percussionist Pierre Favre, and Sylvie Courvoisier continues to work in close cooperation with Geneva pianist Jacques Demierre. These days, Courvoiser released a duo CD with the New York violin player Mark Feldman. Finally, though both are at ease with improvisation and composition, and claim to be influenced by jazz and contemporary music in equal measure, they refuse to define themselves strictly within either canon, resolutely opting for «a space apart». Since 1994 they performed together regularly.
In 1997and 1998 they played a serie of concerts of improvised music which featured saxophonist Urs Leimgruber and British guitarist Fred Frith.
