FAUNA: ROSE / STAPLETON DUO
SIMON ROSE - baritone/alto saxophones
PAUL STAPLETON - bonsai sound sculpture



Encountering one another’s music while performing in the large ensemble ‘Call them Improvisers’, performance at Sonic Arts Research Centre, Belfast (November 2010), directed by Evan Parker, Paul Stapleton and Simon Rose found an immediate musical affinity. Since then they have performed as a duo in Germany and the UK. The recently released and well received: ‘Fauna’ was recorded by Elmar Susse on 22nd September 2011 in Hoffnungskirche (church) in Pankow, Berlin. In the duet Paul Stapleton’s self designed instrument, the BoSS Bonsai Sound Sculpture, (BoSS, 2010) combines with Simon Rose’s circular breathed baritone/alto, multiphonics and harmonic textures, to explore in real-time interaction. The method of exploration commits to a free improvisation approach: the music is composed at the point of performance.

This is the best kind of improvised music… a very remarkable duet
