Thieke Marino Duo

Thieke Marino Duo

Michael Thieke: clarinet

Luigi Marino: zarb, bowed custom cymbals, objects


The duo Thieke/Marino started in Berlin in 2016.
Drawing from improvisation and relying upon empirical practice to introduce collectively composed elements, the dialogue between the two musicians develops from the most unusual and hidden details of sound. Metal resonances and air columns set in vibration inside a clarinet, sounds barely audible emerge from the background to take a predominant role, gradually showing all their potential and unexpected directions to convey intuitive decision-making.
