Teodora Stepančić, Martin Lorenz, and Assaf Gidron
Stepancic, Lorenz, and Gidron are a trio of musicians, composers and friends. Teodora met Martin in Switzerland during a composition residency in Winterthur, and they started performing as a duo together on piano and turntables, releasing an album on Martin’s Dumpf Editions label. Later, Teodora met Assaf in the Hague where they were both studying composition, and have since been curating and organizing concerts together around the world, and performing as a duo on casio organ and sine tones. The three of them came together in 2015 to perform Michael Pisaro’s Concentric Rings in Magnetic Levitation in Berlin and to record it for Dumpf editions in Zurich, and since have been working together on projects of shared interest. They explore music at the fringes of experimental music, performing mostly works of living composers who are part of a growing international community that developed around the Wandelweiser collective, and is committed to open, generous and decentralized sharing and exploration of ideas. They are active in experimental music scenes, Martin in Berlin and Switzerland, Teodora and Assaf in New York, where among other projects they run the Piano+ concert series at Spectrum NYC, and have worked with countless ensembles and concert venues around the world.
