Morphine Raum presents a special meeting between 2 legends of prepared Saxophone.

Upperground Orchestra’s own Piero Bittolo Bon is performing his Spelunker special while André Vida will be showcasing his Breathless Saxophone.

SPELUNKER is the solo project of Piero Bittolo Bon, a multi-instrumentalist and composer based in Ferrara, Italy. Using a custom made microphone system attached at different locations on his alto saxophone, Bittolo Bon captures unearthly resonances and vibrations from his acoustic instrument, channeling and sculpting these frequencies into trance-like polyrhythms, dreamy grooves and immersive soundscapes. Without the use of looping pedals or computer manipulation, Bittolo Bon feeds these captured tones into synthesizers, drum machines, and stompboxes in real time, further manipulating the raw material in his improvised performances.

Berlin-based composer and saxophonist André Vida has performed widely as a soloist and has collaborated with a diverse group of artists including Anthony Braxton, Kevin Blechdom, Tarek Atoui, Hildur Gudnadottir, Max Loderbauer, Rashad Becker, Nico Dockx, Tino Sehgal, and Jamie Lidell. He has worked closely with Anri Sala on performances at the Serpentine Gallery in London, the Roman Ampitheatre in Arles (produced by the LUMA foundation), Frieze London and the Havanna Biennale.
