Eric Bauer — modular synthesizer, electronics, objects, electric guitar
Carina Khorkhordina — trumpet

Carina Khorkhordina on trumpet and Eric Bauer on electronics/electric guitar are both autodidact musicians active in the field of improvised music. The duo started in early 2018 in Berlin and is exploring an extensive variety of possibilities, from transparency of small sounds and microscopic changes/disturbing silences to loudness and density, pushing each other into unknown territories and each time taking risks. The duo has a complementing/oppositional setup of Eric's wide range of instruments — analog modular synthesizer, sampler, objects, elements of percussion and strings, electric guitar and Carina's trumpet on the other side. They both incorporate ideas from other fields into their playing: Eric studied political sciences, sociology and some philosophy, active since over 10 years at various sonic fringes, and Carina is a visual artist working with photography. They have regularly collaborated with other musicians and artists, especially interested in playing with percussionists (the duo played with Burkhard Beins, Dag Magnus Narvesen, Adrian David Krok, Stephen Flinn and Samuel Hall thus far).

Two recordings of the duo are available digitally on AA-REC.
