Relating to this concept, the entire album looks for a balance between composition and free improvisation and every tune is an opportunity to create a strong and deep interaction between the musicians, their notes, sounds and thoughts.
Ananda Gari is a young Italian drummer and composer. From a very early age Ananda Gari comes to understand the importance of writing his own mu-sic and explore new ways to express his personality. His progression as a composer is highlighted on two different recordings released as a co-leader: Govinda+Ananda Gari “INCIPIT” with Mark Turner and Fool Circle “MOVING THOUGHTS” with Italian pianist and ECM Artist Stefano Battaglia.
His new record, entitled “T-Duality” featuring saxophonist Tim Berne, guitarist Rez Abbasi and bassist Michael Formanek, represents the result of all his past studying and performing experiences; it clearly shows his deep interest in free improvisation, avant-garde music and complex rhythmic approaches.
He has performed and recorded with many great musicians such as Mark Turner, Aruan Ortiz, Miles Okazaki, Rez Abbasi, Stefano Battaglia, Tim Berne, Michael Formanek, Mike Melillo, Gianni Lenoci, Fabio Zeppetella.
