Icarus Bèta with Anthony Pateras/Erkki Veltheim. Exploring spectral techniques throughout extended temporal structures, Pateras & Veltheim physically generate unrelenting harmonic waves to create a singular psycho-harmonic texture, blurring perceptions between two otherwise distinct instruments to create something otherworldly and hypnotic. Akira Sakata has been a standard bearer for free jazz in Japan for over forty years. Giovanni Di Domenico, thirty years younger than Akira, is an Italian born, Cameroon raised pianist who operates in both improvised jazz and classical worlds. Together they form a remarkable duo. Akira has a deep, full bodied tenor sax sound, and Giovanni's percussive and classically informed playing (his influences stem from both Italy and Cameroon, where he was raised) complement each other in unexpected ways, tempering each other's moods, or fused together as one in their improvisations.
