Ernesto Rodrigues + Nuno Torres
A Lisbon duo, viola and alto saxophone. The musical focus on exploration of sounds and textures. A non conventional instrumental language, playing with notions of timbre, plasticity and color. An aesthetic free form of improvisation within minimal approach. Nearing silence and privileging a close relationship with the acoustic space. An overall music experience of intimacy and detail.

Electronic music was an early influence on his approach to violin playing, which challenges traditional romantic concepts of the violin/viola through use of preparations and micro tuning.
