Biography of Admir Shuktaj

Admir Shkurtaj, accordionist and pianist. Musician of Albanian origin.
Trained in contemporary, classical, electronic, improvisation, and traditional Balkan music.
He completed his musical studies in Tirana (Albania) - Lecce - Milan.
He lives in the experiences of various types of music and combines them where possible, attracted by the sounds of the surrounding soundscape.

Giorgio Distante, Trumpet. Apulian musician.
Trained in classical, jazz, improvised and electronic/electroacoustic music.
He studied between Bari, United States, Perugia and Rome.
He sees the trumpet as an instrument of many timbral possibilities, both as a melodic instrument.

Redi Hasa, Cello. Albanian musician who lives in Puglia and Salento naturalized.
Trained in classical, traditional music and improvisation.
He completed his musical studies in Tirana (Albania) and Lecce.
He easily Combines traditional and contemporary language.


With this record we want to build a craftsmanship music.
The points of departure are not themes or melodies but "musical mechanisms", similar to those of contemporary classical music.

It starts from extra-musical ideas to build themes; musical series, rhythmical series, series of sounds or sonic gestures.

Improvisation is therefore guided or "forced" by these frames and, paradoxically, unleashes more freedom.
Elements of traditional music, from the Albanian tradition, burst here and there in a more distant memory than a living reality.
