Moving Sounds performing in Rome
at Sant’Ignazio di Loyola, invited by the CRM – Centro Ricerche Musicali for Artescienza 2022
The clarinet virtuoso Tara Bouman and the exceptional trumpeter and versatile musician Markus Stockhausen have been performing as the duo MOVING SOUNDS since 2002.
The repertoire includes compositions by both artists as well as improvisation and, above all, intuitive music. They take their listeners on a musical journey of discovery. Their recent CD RITUAL has been released with purely intuitive music.
The wide spectrum of sound experience which MOVING SOUNDS creates – ranging from deeply entrenched profundity via good-humoured whizzing and whirring to eruptive eccentricity – is highly appreciated by music critics and audiences alike. Music enthusiasts with varying tastes enjoy the appearances and let themselves be transported into new realms of sound.
MOVING SOUNDS performs Musica Sacra – music which directs you to the inner self, which invites you to become still. Before the concert the musicians endeavor to empty themselves of the worries and concerns of the world and thus make themselves receptive for the sounds that wish to be born of the moment.
The intimacy of Musica Sacra makes the listeners feel that through their presence they also contribute to its creation. Nothing is created at random, but rather depth, space, purity evolve. One can sense a longing in the music, a calling and cheering, speaking, shouting, until the sounds unite in stillness.
MOVING SOUNDS gave concerts in Italy, Spain, Great Britain, France, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Norway, Israel, Russia, Rumania, Bulgaria, Hungary, USA, Chile and of course in Germany. The duo prefers to perform in places that have special acoustics like churches or museums, where the extraordinary sound of the brass and wind instruments unfolds best.
A clipping from a review of a concert in Mündelheim (Germany) says: „Again and again trumpet and clarinet find a unison in sound which one would never expect to be possible with these diverse instruments. Without any wordy explanation it became clear that intuitive music is another, maybe even higher level of improvisation.“
