The Critical Quartet Experience jostles conventions and labels with a music in constant boiling, boosted by a staged and improvised improvisations.
The Critical is liquid love,
An assumed show that never budge.
The Critical Quartet Experience was born in 2013, at first the group was built around some compositions and covers in a rather jazz-rock tone.
Soon the group finds its identity in its music and on the stage, integrating singing, creating new compositions and especially by seeking to develop a scenic identity based on humor and derision in a music too often taken seriously and not necessarily accessible to all.
Initially the concept and born in the form of improvisations, impromptu situations, interactions with the public ... then little by little an identity is drawn, also due to the human cohesion between the members of the group and the desire to share that with others.
Today the group is working to develop a real show between music and theater while keeping a part of freedom and improvisation that makes its trademark.
The CQE: a cleverly balanced cocktail of sweet melodies, big saturated guitars and original, percussive and wild grooves.
All supported by a show assumed humorous, sometimes black, sometimes light. A crazy universe, where expression and creativity are limitless.
The experience this quartet brings us is inspired by Tigran Hamassyan's melodious asymmetry, the epic power of System Of A Down, the liberated folly of John Zorn and the warm groove of Bruno Mars.
A staging that tends to break the barrier between music and theater, transporting you into the imaginary imagination of artists. Sometimes musicians, sometimes characters, crossing the dark universe of the polars of the 20s to Japanese Haiku, never without humor. Come live a great diversion live and music!
Step out of the frame, at least for an hour, a journey to the symbiosis of the most elitist styles of Jazz at Mathrock, in a marriage that makes them accessible to all. To walk with us along the paths of artistic freedom, with fellow travelers: the members of this quartet: strong identities, sublimated by the communion of their madness. Audible love, a good dose of joie de vivre and a fierce passion, these are the only things that you risk exposing yourself by coming to listen to Critical Quartet Experience .
