João Grilo is a composer and a piano player from Portugal, and has been traveling and studying the last two years in Scandinavia.
For this concert he will play compositions where he blends different musical languages with a focus on contemporary music.
He is playing with the marvelous fresh new band called Glass Octopus. For this concert they will explore the idea of continuous musical frames that are constantly varying — they are interested in periodic movements combined with irregularities.
To make it simpler: they are interested in poetry.
