Spectro Duo

SpectroDuo started to work in 2013 in a field of electroacoustic experimental art. Ensemble consists of two composer-improvisers, Martyna Kosecka & Idin Samimi Mofakham, who use their classical musical training in working on avant-garde and experimental sound projects, combining the experience in sound coming from orient and occident. Their music focus lies in drone, noise, beating phenomena, glitch, field recording transformation, microtonality and oriental modalities in particular. Except electronics, they use piano, saxophone as well as Iranian and Polish traditional instruments.
Self-made visuals, some of them controlled live, have base in glitch art, distortion and binary operations.

SpectroDuo performed at various experimental music & media festivals, like Extreme Chill Festival Reykjavik (Iceland), Ars Electronica Linz (Austria), AudioArt Festival Kraków (Poland), Musicacoustica Beijing (China), Tehran Contemporary Music Festival & TADAEX (Iran), and Czech Republic, Spain, Sweden, Armenia and many others.
