Staņislavs is inspired by ethno music, Asnate — by improvisation.
This is how these two musicians meet and understand how much they can give to each other. Compositions by Staņislavs, knowledge of folk music by Asnate and the ability to improvise, turns into very unique style of music.
When improvising, they supplement each other with different special techniques. The duo is planning to record conceptual vinyl where one side of it will be recorded in the forest and the other side in a church. It will contain the original music with texts and melodies from folklore. The first performance was just recently at Ziemeļblāzma, together with the ‘Jasmīnas’ choir.
Staņislavs Judins is known as the jazz and improvisation bass player. He often participates in projects of experimental music. Most recently he’s been composing and he found himself to realisation that inspiration can be found in his homeland, only then the real music will be created.
Asnate Rancāne is the researcher of ethno music, she’s multi-instrumentalist and is managing a vocal folk group. She’s been very actively involved with folk music since she was a child and most recently her inspiration is in improvisation. The results of her improvising are very special as she’s using her knowledge from her experience with ethno music.
