Most of my childhood memories have music in them. I remember my parent’s record player always on, with The Beatles, Camarón or Vivaldi. My parents say that I was always singing and dancing and that one day, very seriously, I made the statement that I wanted to play the violin. I don’t know exactly why I chose this instrument but I remember that I wanted to make music.
In spite of my academic background focused on classical music, I have always been looking for other musical and artistic experiences. That is how I discovered historical performance and free improvisation, which completely changed my conception of music making. Both required and allowed me to be involved in the process creation, encouraging me to look into my individual expression as a performer and revealing new creative and artistic possibilities.
One of them is Duo Calambur. Rebecca and I share our historical music background and the desire to experiment fully: mixing repertories, improvising or composing crazy pieces. We have built a free creation space where everything can be deconstructed, mixed, twisted, rewritten to become something else, different and ours.
