XYQuartet is a band in constant
search for new directions in between jazz and contemporary classical
improvisational codes and composition genetics.
originates from Nicola Fazzini’s (who plays the alto saxophone) and
Alessandro Fedrigo’s (who plays the bass) will to experiment new
strategies in composing and improvising. By their sides there are two
musicians among the most interesting ones in the
Italian jazz scene: Luigi Vitale on the vibraphone and Luca Colussi on
and Y are two codes symbolizing the antithesis from which the sound of
the quartet rises: contemporary classical music and jazz,
composition and improvisation, tradition and innovation, sound and
classical music techniques – like serialism, twelve tone technique,
intervallic improvisation, modes of limited transposition,
rhythm, aleatoric procedures – are genetically modified to be used in
jazz structures and forms - like polyrhythms –
and to generate a mix of written and improvised music with deep
coherence, homogeneity and originality.
