The clarinet virtuoso Tara Bouman and the exceptional trumpeter and versatile musician Markus Stockhausen have been performing as the duo MOVING SOUNDS since 2002.
The repertoire includes compositions by both artists as well as improvisation and, above all, intuitive music. Their programme is decided on spontaneously and in accordance with the acoustic qualities of the space in which they are playing, the time and the people present. The individual pieces are announced during the concert. They take their listeners on a musical journey of discovery.
The wide spectrum of sound experience which MOVING SOUNDS creates – ranging from deeply entrenched profundity via good-humoured whizzing and whirring to eruptive eccentricity – is highly appreciated by music critics and audiences alike. Music enthusiasts with varying tastes enjoy the appearances and let themselves be transported into new realms of sound.
MOVING SOUNDS has given numerous concerts in Italy, Switzerland, England, Norway, Holland, France, Spain, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Israel, Russia, USA, Chile and, especially, Germany. The two musicians prefer to play in venues with special acoustic qualities such as churches or museums, where the extraordinary sound qualities of the wind duo can unfold in the best way possible.
