above: SJÖ : TVÅ feat. Classicus Quartet live at Druckereihalle - Basel 2016

In this program, Manzoni and Zaes completely rearranged their album 'sjö : två' and added a string quartet to their minimalist sonic world. The talented four players of the Budapest-based Classicus Quartet, live on stage, reenact some of Zaes' electronic sounds and reinforce Manzoni's harmonic approaches, both of which give this program a very unique note, blending the classical with the contemporary electronics.
