RPE Duo

Matt Postle (USA) – trumpet

Radek Rudnicki (PL) – electronics

RPE Duo is a live act that explores interaction between trumpet and live electronics. Electronic grooves combine hip- hop with techno/dub in an experimental manner. The trumpet interacts with electronics, aiming to contrast/duplicate the electronic timbre. Improvisations slowly develop in time into dense noise or fragmented pieces. None of the material is scored however each sound is carefully crafted. Visuals used in the show, expose how limited material can entertain and evolve, these produced during the concert range from clear to abstract images.

Radek is using Elektron Machinedrum and Octatrack, processing, recording and mixing the performance live. Matt is improvising with trumpet and interacting with the effects and rhythms while being live sampled.

Duo toured UK, Italy, Ireland and USA. Recently collaborated on data sonification with NASA and Stockholm Environment Institute, this resulted in performances at Dave Douglas’s FONT festival in NYC (2013). In 2012 performed as Jamey Aebersold’s guest artist at UNC Chapel Hill, USA. In 2014 RPE Duo is releasing their Playground EP on Wave Folder Records and touring the UK.

Duo is also providing workshops on improvisation, extended techniques and creative use of technology. These were made for university and college students, and for youth groups.

RPE Duo was featured in Create Digital Music, MatrixsythShuffle Magazine and FONT among others.
