Obradovic Tixier Duo
Lada Obradovic: drums | David Tixier: piano | Croatian Lada Obradovic and French pianist David Tixier are a couple both on the stage and in real life. This closeness is reflected in a unique sound in their duo – a sound which combines the acoustic base instruments of drum and piano with an electronic sound such as Moog synthesizer, sampler, and Fender Rhodes and “toys” (as they call them) such as kalimba and chimes. Often beginning with classic Bach-style severity, the pieces open with a broad improvisational manner for contemporary visions. Polyrhythmic grooves, clear melodies and sound samples from the chirping of the crickets to thunderstorms create dense sound collages which always serve the goal of Obradovic’s and Tixier’s music of telling stories.
