Auand Records presents Italian drummer and composer Ananda Gari's T-Duality, a collaboration with Tim Berne (alto sax), Rez Abbasi (guitar), and Michael Formanek (double bass). T-duality is an equivalence of two physical theories, such as quantum field theories and string theories, which can allow an erasure of the differences between small and large distances and compress the multiple dimensions posited by string theories. Gari's album takes this concept as it's title and looks for a balance between composition and free improvisation, with every tune providing an opportunity to create a strong and deep interaction between musicians, notes, sounds, and thoughts. From a very early age, Gari understood the importance of writing his own music and exploring new ways to express his personality. His progression as a composer is highlighted on two 2011 recordings released as a co-leader: Incipit by Govinda + Ananda Gari with American saxophonist Mark Turner and Moving Thoughts by Fool Circle with Italian pianist Stefano Battaglia. T-Duality represents the result of all of Gari's skill a student and performer, developed through collaborations with Aruan Ortiz, Miles Okazaki, Mike Melillo, Gianni Lenoci, and Fabio Zeppetella, and clearly displays his deep interest in free improvisation, avant-garde music, and complex rhythmic approaches. Recorded by Michael Brorby at Acoustic Recording Studio, Brooklyn, New York; produced by Gari with Marco Valente as executive producer; cover art by Dino Musci.
