After sharing the stage together for the first time at the Rome Session, Vladimir Kurumilian and Luca Longobardi will be taking the viewers on an intimate journey of organic piano sounds and dreamy electronics for the second time, this time at the Beirut Session, at the legendary club B 018.
Pianists and composers Vladimir Kurumilian and Luca Longobardi would first meet on Soundcloud a few years ago, following each other’s music.
The two artists share a likeness for organic piano sounds and, surprisingly, a hidden hopeless romantic side. Vladimir was drawn to Luca’s warm electronic touch to his piano sounds, which he rightfully describes as ‘poetic’. Luca was mostly drawn to Vladimir’s absence of space and time in his melodies, leaving room for travel and discovery and belonging.
Thanks to cosmic connections, if you ask Luca, they would meet for the first time in Rome in the fall of 2017, and would later that winter work on ‘Dopamine’, Vladimir Kurumilian’s first studio album, produced in Rome by Luca Longobardi, and mixed and mastered in Beirut by Ziad Moukarzel, released to rave reviews in November 2018.
They will also be joined by Ziad Ghosn, notorious B 018 resident DJ, for a set that includes some of ‘Dopamine’ special remixes by local DJs.
