Livestream: Project VO // #PANDAjazz
Rieko Okuda - piano
Antti Virtaranta - bass
Project VO is an improvising duo between Antti Virtaranta and Rieko Okuda working since 2010. Their approach is handcrafted like their limited releases "glass hopper" (2012) and "プランクトン" (2015), which reflect the way they navigate the free improvisation landscape. The characteristics of the music is repetitive and broken rhythms. The combination of piano and bass has expanded to include viola and small electronics, which further push the duo to explore more colors and textures for their performances.
