Tamara Soldan – voice
Michele Pedrazzi – live electronics

In this special evening EXTEMPORE presents his pre-release Album “from the darkness to the light” in a Multimedia Experience.

Extempore is a duo founded in Berlin by singer Tamara Soldan and electronic musician Michele Pedrazzi. Jazz, experimental and ancient music meet in the background of the two Italian musicians: from this combination originates the idea of a virtual dialog between past and present, between musical forms that appear to be distant but are surprisingly compatible.

The retrieval process concentrates on the Gregorian chant, here presented in an abstract light, released from its original context. Spread on the electronic textures, the chant becomes pure vocal matter, ready to be processed by the machine.

Extempore is a journey among evocative fragments and unexpected soundscapes, where the ancient melodies enter a new dimension, still keeping their original drive: the movement that goes “from the darkness to the light”.

Extempore music was also selected as soundtrack for the documentary “Fractures” by Marzotti-Buttignol-Ghione, already presented at the Gibellina 2018 Night Visions Festival.
