As lover of unexplored space , border crossing sounds, Giuseppe focuses his research on the baritone saxophone, constantly expanding a personal vocabulary that goes through his background in contemporary classical music , jazz improvisation and his interest for non-western music.

“… huge sonore sound; his performance is mystic, multilayered and full of secrecy” (W.de Joode)
“… clear example of reincarneyation” (Duke’s day, Bimhuis)
“…the most extreme soloist of the bunch with his search along the borders of the baritone, slap tongue-harmonic effects to downpours” (draaiomjeoren.com)
“… such dynamics! such power! such swing!” (E.Determeyer)
“… Doronzo holds a brilliant argument for the baritone sax as a leading instrument.” (Trouw)

(All about Jazz)
“As one of the most exciting fresh voices in the Dutch jazz and impro scene”, Italian born, Amsterdam based musician and composer Giuseppe Doronzo, focuses his solo research on the baritone sax. His solo work, gives you a polyphonic vision from a monodic instrument. The performance consists of pieces and improvisations that combine contemporary classical music, jazz improvisation and non-western music traditions. He gets inspired by urban and natural environments, electronic sounds and spaces, that all converge into an introspective experience of the baritone sax sounds. He experiments with multiphonics, amalgams of different sound layers, that open up to a microtonal, polyphonic and polyrhythmic music field. Last year with his solo project, Doronzo has been nominated Music Revelation and Best Debut Album 2018 by All About Jazz on the international jazz critic pool “El Intruso”. Furthermore, he had the possibility to present his debut solo album “GOYA” at various venues and festivals in Europe including Sant’ Anna Arresi Jazz Festival, Bimhuis, and Gaudeamus Muziekweek Festival. Russian film director Roman Ermolaev made a 40’ experimental film based on Doronzo’ s baritone sax solo album “GOYA”, gaining a relevant attention from Film Festivals and Contemporary Art Museums in Europe. His first solo album “GOYA” was released in August 2018 on his record label, Tora Records.

Aterraterr is a meeting between two friends coming from the same land, Puglia (south of Italy), living at two extremes of Europe, the Netherlands and south of Italy.
Through their music they narrate past and present tales, perhaps totally abstract and utopian. Their language is inspired by the nature of their instruments, wind and percussive.
The soundscapes are influenced by the geographical and rural areas of Puglia, pastoral minimalism and traces of ancient mediterranean rituals.

AVA embarks on an ethno-musical expedition to document the musics of this imaginary land and its folk. Formed just over a year ago, AVA had an exciting first year with some 40 concerts in the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy, receiving a phenomenal response from all types of audience.
AVA’s debut album, Music From an Imaginary Land is the grand result of the past year’s work.
They invite you on an ethnomusical expedition to the imaginary land and beyond. The album was released in spring 2017 on Trytone Records.

FALGA was born in October 2013 in Groningen, NL. Its members met and started first playing improvised music in duo or trio, in various combinations; subsequently they decided to blend their strong spiritual connections into a quintet.
The crusade of the ensemble is compelling a musical language which is the synthesis of the personal background of each member, the tradition of jazz music which is innovation, and last but not least the cathartic power of the moment.
Following to mantra of “now”, the band has been working with perseverance on original music; every composition is a different and always intimate story, but at the same time it’s nothing more than a piece of clay ready to be shaped into something radically different, according to the free will of any/every member.
Therefore, what the audience should be ready to attend to is a process of constant metamorphosis and creative flow, a research for the less traveled path and the enjoyment of a friendship facing endless unresolved questions.
