We are João Silva, from Portugal, and Mariano Camarasa, from Argentina. A violin and a piano. We met in Barcelona and started to play and compose together. We recorded our debut album "Pasa Tiempo". Now we need your help to share our music. Because we believe classical music has still a lot to say.
We explore classical music, learning from the past, but also looking for new sounds and melodies. As we improvise, we hope to offer new looks at a music that calls each of our senses, without forgetting its origines.
To show the world what we do, we need more visibility. In order to do so, we asked the association Street2Studio to collaborate with us. Together, we decided what should be done, how we could do it and how much money we need to invest.
We deeply believe classical music should be accessible to a greater number of persons, and need to be democratized. Unfortunately, the music industry doesn't see things the same way and is not willing to take that risk. That's why it mainly reuse what as be done by the masters and is proven to be recognized, instead of supporting innovation in that field.
Because classical should not mean outdated, we count on you to be part of our experience. Each participation count, and remember that it's not about donation, but investment. That's why you will be rewarded for your trust and your support. You will find below all the information regarding what we offer.
