“A great pairing, meshed like watch cogs, a face with 17 hours working to forgotten moons.
a lesson in the creation of spontaneous sound; all you could ask for from an improvised performance.
Michael Holland, Nov 2013 Eyes4eyes.blogspot.it
“A wonderful collaboration. Both of them switching between lyricism and extended noise making fluidly, echoing each other and taking time out to listen. I spent half of their set in a semi conscious mystical state.
The alert gracefulness and reciprocal regard through which Mimmo and Blunt explicit their intertwined instrumental togetherness convey the same sense of fulfillment that irradiates the most surprisingly revelatory instants of normality[…]
When the duty calls, the pair is willing and ready to show the listener how peace can be restored, nimbly sailing to calmer waters without apparent effort: a musician’s thorough control of his/her means of expression is something that can be attained only by “living” the instrument day in, day out, a principle respected as The Word by authentic improvisers […]

Sparkling acoustic duo featuring a contemporary wild chamber attitude, improvising instant compositions, sound texture explorations and sudden lyrical flights.
Their improvisation, that has been defined “A Gentle Vertigo”, freely crosses boundaries and welcomes rich contradictions between melody and blessed chaos.
Experimental flavors, multi-perspective intuitions and reciprocal listening are the extremely well balanced blend of this duo that strives for an improvisation where “things happen”, able to face pulsing silences and airy architectures as elements of a sound sculpture.
Relationship among inner voices, live attention to detail, lyrical declinations and violent assertive moments are on display in their performances where openess and concentration take the risky route of sailing through dynamic contrasts, tackling episodes of turbulence and tranquility, passages of great delicacy and braves hazardous balances on a music that keeps alive our attention and freshes our feeling.
Freshly started in 2013 the duo has already toured Uk, Italy, Germany, Finland and right now in the Usa with concerts in Chicago, California and NY.
