Humanization 4tet is a band formed by the Portuguese Luís Lopes and Rodrigo Amado with the Texan brothers Aaron and Stefan Gonzalez. Rooted in jazz, the band practices in a dynamic way a music that can run from the simplest melody to the most aggressive Noise, or from the most organic improvisation towards more targeted composition, never losing sight of its primary objective of conceptual construction and implementation of an identity. This is reflected since their first Humanization 4tet-debut album, edited by the Portuguese label Clean Feed, named best album of 2008 by Portuguese magazine Jazz.pt. Plus, the add of more two records: “Live in Madison” and “Electricity”, both edited by the French label Ayler Records, all internationally acclaimed. The band presents now a new album, “Believe, Believe” resulting from their latest tour in U.S. and recorded in New Orleans.
Project VO
Antti Virtaranta – double bass
Rieko Okuda – piano
Project VO is an improvising duo between Antti Virtaranta and Rieko Okuda working since 2010. Their approach is handcrafted like their limited releases "glass hopper" (2012) and "プランクトン" (2015), which reflect the way they navigate the free improvisation landscape. The characteristics of the music is repetitive and broken rhythms. The combination of piano and bass has expanded to include viola and small electronics, which further push the duo to explore more colors and textures for their performances.
They actively perform throughout Europe and in Japan including collaborations with different performers. More recently Project VO was invited to do a week-long residency in Budapest collaborating with a large number of Hungarian performers.
