"NAUTILUS" TOUR OF PRESENTATION

Tran(ce)formation Quartet, composed by Giorgia Santoro, Adolfo la Volpe, Marco Bardoscia, Pippo D’Ambrosio, presents his second release, entitled “Nautilus”, published and distributed by the italian Workin’ Label. The album marks a further enrichment of the very original sound of the ensemble, based on the dialogue and contamination between different musical languages, such as jazz, contemporary music, rock, traditional musics from North India and the Mediterranean Sea. The sound of the quartet (and often the titles of the songs: “Biancaneve”, “Ninna nanna”, etc.) leads the listener into a dreamlike dimension, which shifts its connotation from time to time between spellbinding, fairy or disturbing; and it’s not by chance that the journey ends with “Over the rainbow”, the only non-original composition, here transformed in an ethereal ascension into the sky and over the rainbow.
The Tran(ce)formation Quartet, born in 2006 from an idea of Giorgia Santoro and Adolfo La Volpe, has performed several concerts and recorded their first release, "Entrance", which has been published in 2011 by Leo Records, an english label that has been a cornerstone of the european and worldwide improvised music scene for more than twenty years, having published works by artists such as Sun Ra, Anthony Braxton, Cecil Taylor, Steve Lacy, etc.). “Entrance” has received rave reviews from italian and european critics; the album was broadcast on international radio stations: Radio Ciutat Vella, Barcelona (Spain),  Radio T, Chemnitz (Germany), CHRW Station of the University of West, Ontario (Canada), La Nuit des Sauriens, Paris (France), Berkeley (California), Battiti Rai RadioTre (Italy).
