This is our thing

Lorenzo Bianchi Hoesch Group
Composition | Performance

LBHG performs a music of relationships, interactions, space and mutual learning.

It is a music that has real time electronics as its center, and that is open and capable of shifting from minimalist soundscapes to virtuoso, fast and dynamic solo moments. The workflow is a complex path that  starts from the bottom, with workshops and improvisations and then evolves into defined but still open forms. 

“This is our thing” is a project that wants to go beyond a certain type of relationship between instruments and electronics.
We refuse the idea of the acoustic instrument augmented by the electronics because we want the electronics to be driven from the human touch and mind. Electronic musician is a musician, a performer like others.
Integrating the real time sound treatment as a fondamental brick of our musical construction we put the interplay at the heart of the thing, pushing his meaning forward as not only it will structure the relationship between the instruments, but also the collective construction of a common timbre and sound.
This is the central aim and goal of the project: A common and participatory sound built three listening and cooperating.

William Besserer is a young saxophonist at ease as much with the language of jazz as with the world of contemporary music. Marco Luparia, is an eclectic percussionist inventor of a personal and vast sound universe. They both participate in this new project under the direction of Lorenzo Bianchi Hoesch as part of his research and compositions. 
The idea is to create a different space between composition and improvisation, between different aesthetics and different instrumental techniques, developing new relationships.
Aware that we are not the first asking ourselves these questions, we offer, on the other hand, an absolutely new point of view.
