Jazz Violin 2.0
Luca Ciarla solOrkestra
Violin, live loops, vocals, toy instruments
Italian musician Luca Ciarla redraws the borders of jazz violin with a loop pedal, his voice and electronics. Step by step he performs live all the parts, playing his instrument like a guitar, a bass or a percussion instrument, unfolding new improvisations and virtuoso passages. In this imaginative landscape Luca sings, whistles, plays other little instruments; music is continuously evolving into an astonishing solOrkestra. The program Jazz Violin 2.0 features original compositions and unusual arrangements of jazz standards.
