WU WEI - Lucas Niggli Duo

They rank among the most interesting exponents of the younger music scene. They do not bother about stilistic conventions but various worlds of music inspire them full of fun to find their genuin music.
Their triple preference is first the modern music, then the improvisation and finally the extension of the common playing of their instruments.
Their way of playing is characterised by high formal consciousness by great expressive power, by quick turns, beautiful sounds, wit and discipline which gives strong preference to improvisation. The degree of how these two musicians are fused is really amazing. Even a dance on the tightrope without net or double floor could be ideal.
Through Wu Wei’s way of playing the Sheng, it became a virtuose orchestra. We can even locate it among the rhythm instruments as well as among the melody or harmony instruments: It unites the whole range of an orchestra in one instrument. The percussion in its larger sense not only understood as a rhythm instrument offers with its uncountable colour sounds and dynamic the optimal supplement so as according to sound, dynamic, energy and colourness this duo certainly sounds perfectly complete.
