rockeys duo takes its name from the majestic Rocky Mountains of Canada. This project is a unique collaboration between harpsichordist Katelyn Clark (Montréal) and pianist Luciane Cardassi (Banff) that explores the unexpected combination of piano, harpsichord and electronics. The duo uncovers and develops the endless possibilities of their keyboard instruments through performance, improvisation, and commissioning new works. After meeting and collaborating at the Banff Centre during several artist residencies, the duo began their current project of commissioning a series of new works for harpsichord, piano and electronics by Canadian composers, which includes Brocade by Linda Catlin Smith, funded through the Canada Council for the Arts. rockeysduo.com
