DETOUR is one hour of non-stop music built around four main pieces composed between 2003 and 2008: Trio’ze (Trio), Sofia Buenos-Aires (Duo), Five Four Tango (Quartet), and Ardhana Kali (Quartet). In order to achieve a continuous flow of music, each main piece is linked to the other by a "Conduit," a short solo piece blending the musical materials and creating a bridge between two musical continents.
