Marialuisa Capurso is an Italian singer, sound artist, composer and performer based in Berlin. Her work is multidisciplinary and focuses on the connection between voice, sound, field recordings, body and improvisation. She investigates and explores the realm of acoustic sounds and electronic interfaces as extension of human voice. Art and life, sound and movement, the common line is the improvisation which leads her to research and to create new worlds. She studied jazz, new musical languages and technology at two conservatories in Italy, and studied with Meredith Monk, Faheem Mazeem, Dave Moss, William Parker. She recorded with the Hocus Pocus Orchestra and William Parker the album “What Shall We Do” for Silta Records. http://marialuisacapurso.blogspot.com/

Arvind Ganga is a guitar player from Den Haag, the Netherlands. He takes a physical approach to guitar playing, employing objects and extended techniques to explore new sonic possibilities. His music draws from influences as diverse as noise and drones, North Indian ragas, experimental rock, and everyday sounds. With free improvisation he brings these together into an intense, loosely structured, chaotic mesh that is bathing in the rays of a deep red sun. Ethereal noise with a punk­improv attitude. Arvind plays solo, improvises with like-­minded musicians, and is active in music/dance improvisation. His music took him to play squats, galleries, clubs and festivals from Poland to Portugal, Chile and Peru.

Pulpy Blossom is the duo of Marialuisa and Arvind. Free improvisations create acid dark atmosphere crossed by voices, punk sounds, imaginary blossoms, words, movements, poems. “Put down your fears, your tears are falling, dark is quite intense. What about my dreams?”
