In 2006, David Moore started Bing & Ruth as a way to bring his compositions to an audience beyond academia. A pianist from Kansas, studying at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York’s Greenwich Village, Moore was writing the sort of music he wanted to hear: minimalist ensemble music with a certain filmic sensitivity, one that prioritized grace and texture over the style’s once-radical subtraction.

Bing & Ruth
Spanish harpist living in Porto since 2011, Angélica Salvi has been a particularly active artist among the community of this city, among collaborations and solo appearances that spread in various contexts, from jazz and improvised music to electro-acoustic and electronic composition. “Phantone”, edited at the end of last year by Lovers & Lollypops, is an affirmative step in her solo career. Salvi’s music plays the melody, the resonance and the movement with an almost beating parsimony.
