Multi-instrumentalists Ruth Bruckner and Fred Thomas met in Tuscany in 2019, immediately connecting through their love of medieval music and in particular the viella. Performing on combinations of strings, recorders, prepared piano, tenor banjo and voice, their duo is dedicated to recording experiments, the Chantilly Codex, Bach, song-writing, extended techniques and free improv. Their first release is an exquisite madrigal composed by the medieval composer and theorist Paolo da Firenze.
