Rhizottome play and expand upon themes of traditional music - exploding them in improvised flights in order to "re-compose" them in new, different and challenging ways.
Their music is at once both sensitive and energetic - jumping from sweet and subtle passages one moment, to chaotic and aggressive passages the next. They attempt to create a dialogue between their two instruments - to build, each time, new stories, new dances. They conjure up odd images of computer driven barrel organs. Rhizottome write all their own compositions and are an exhilarating and challenging live proposition.
