Kirki Project is my recent collaboration with saxophonist Ricardo Alvarez. Music is inspired by South Andean folk featuring field recordings from Tirana celebrations at Atacama desert, where Ricardo travelled, and gathered source material for the compositions.
Ricardo Alvarez – saxophones
Radek Rudnicki – electronics
Kirki Project is exploring new sonorities for sax and electronics through improvisation inspired by this aesthetic. Heavy beat-based electronica fused with improvised sax melodies draw from this festival full of life, joy and intensity. The album and live set structure is based on the festival with four main movements. The arrival (Ya vamos llegando), square, pilgrimage and farewell.
Forthcoming album and live set futures the following pieces:
We are currently working on the live version of the album.
First gig booked on 17 August at Millers Yard, York (UK)
