about

ToRa may be a manifestation of an urge to get to know the non-obvious.
If we get close enough to the sun, we get burned. If we don´t try
that, we won´t understand how it feels to explore the sun from close
distance. This way, ToRa tries to explore the non-obvious musical
thinking outside itself. Michal Rataj and Miroslav Tóth form the
Czech-Slovak duo of composers and performers. The studio recordings
were developed continuously as a series of recorded improvisations,
from which were carefully chosen eight autonomous, yet overlapping
parts. The live concert performance works with surround sound and
develops a musical form that fuses concert with an acousmatic sound
projection.
