The collaboration between bassist and composer Ilaria Capalbo and pianist/composer Stefano Falcone is a project that has evolved over a few years, since when the pair met during studies and as their careers took shape, bringing Ilaria to Sweden and Stefano to Italy. The duo works on original compositions, co-writing and free improvisation, leading the tiny ensemble towards a distinctive, chamber-like sound that well represents the musicians' respective backgrounds and experiences. Their debut album, Invisible Atlas, has been released on Skidoo Records in November 2017. It traces a geographical and emotional path, a thread woven between the northernmost and southernmost edges of Europe, between classical and jazz music.
An ongoing project, a research on the sound and the possibilities of the double bass as an instrument that carries both harmonic and melodic meaning and has deep roots in the worlds of orchestral music and jazz.
