Tonight, Jozef Dumoulin & Nicolò Ricci will play new music from their fresh album, cellist Leah Plave and Tiziano Teodori will perform in duo and artist Ping-En Hung will make an electronic trip with the audience.

Leah Plave is an unusual and well travelled artist. Unable to resist any genre besides country/western, she goes beyond the traditional role of a cellist, performing not only classical repertoire but electronic, non-western, experimental, contemporary, and early music. She frequently works with living composers and enjoys interdisciplinary, cross-cultural projects. Leah has lived and toured extensively across North America, China, and Europe as a soloist, chamber musician, and collaborator. By the age of 24, she was a four-time immigrant. At the moment she is operating from The Hague.

Tiziano Teodori is a flutist, electronic composer, improviser Most of his music is the result of experimentations focusing on the infinite possibilities of sound’s behaviors and spaces both with manipulations of recorded sounds and playing live.

The Italian Amsterdam based young musician Nicolo Ricci has been making Dutch stages unsafe for several years now with his progressive post-bop / free jazz saxophone playing. In the beginning of March 2024, he released a new album with the well-known Belgian pianist / keys adventurer Jozef Dumoulin, known for his open and luminous approach to the piano and to music in general, anchored in tradition without being burdened by it. We are very much looking forward to their performance this evening, where they will play music from the new album, called Lento.

Nicolò Ricci About Lento:

“Lento” refers to the peaceful pace of its music but also to “Liscio” an Italian genre of music associated with ballroom dancing and social events. At a Liscio event, it is common to invite or be invited by someone to dance a “lento”, suggesting a slow, intimate and graceful movement style, made of smooth and flowing motions. Lento is about my childhood memories in Romagna, the land of my family’s origin, about the empty beaches in winter and the evenings filled with dance.

Born in Taipei (Taiwan) in 1993, the electronics artist, bassist, and composer Ping-En Hung has been residing and studying in Amsterdam since 2016. Having graduated from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with a bachelor’s and master’s jazz performance degree in 2022, she is now pursuing studies in the live electronics master’s degree under Jos Zwaanenburg.

Ping-En’s versatility in art seamlessly traverses genres from modern jazz to classical contemporary and electronic music. Drawing inspiration from her extensive experience in live jazz performances across Europe, Ping-En utilizes improvisation as a powerful tool for experimentation. Her foundation in jazz strongly influences her work, while her current focus on electronic music showcases her creativity in noise and sound design genres.
