Manon Letort (klarinet), Tanine Kian (piano)
The Duo Tipasa was created by a common interest in exploration. Looking for new musical texture, freedom of expression without judgement or pre-defined ideas.
The improvisations are guided by the connection between the classical chamber music repertoire and other arts, such as literature or visual art; following each one's intuition to express a word, a feeling, an emotion and translate it into a musical experience: 'In our improvisation as a duo, but also as part of a bigger ensemble, we are dealing with the unforeseen, reacting with each other on the spot.'
The Duo Tipasa started in 2020 at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, and they regularly invite other musicians to share improvisation sessions with them.
