The bridge that the two string musicians Matthias Bartolomey (cello) and Klemens Bittmann (violin, viola, mandola) draw in their diversified musical renditions, ranges from classically-oriented chamber music, through various sidesteps towards jazz, to accents of rock and pop. The two musicians share a deep love and respect for the sound of their instruments, as well as a strong passion for jointly developing new possible soundscapes. Equipped with playfulness, their compositions oscillate between powerful high-speed riffs, spontaneous improvisations, and dreamily restrained and soulfully played passages. Not to mention, the special groove that this Styrian-Viennese duo manages to awaken with its classical instruments. In 2013 their debut album Meridian was released.
