Marc Ducret – Liudo Mockūno duetas

Trumpai apie atlikėjus: Prancūzų kilmės gitaristas, Marc Ducret, ir saksofonistas Liudas Mockūnas kartu pradėjo groti nuo 2002 m. grupėje “Toxikum”, kartu su būgnininku Stefan Pasborg. Vėliau muzikantai pradėjo savo atskirą duo programą ir 2009m. išleido albumą pavadinimu “Silent Vociferation”.

“…What amazes me about this is that no matter what extreme or which odd sounds each member of the duo comes up with, the other member is able to converse and compliment the ongoing dialogue. Even when things (sounds) get strange, there is a great communion of the spirits. Its times like these when one or two folks harness freedom and come up with something that doesn’t sound so free. These are truly magic moments and they occur throughout there album “Silent Vociferation”on different levels…”
Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery
A tandem of two ingenious personalities: French guitarist Marc Ducret and Lithuanian saxophonist Liudas Mockūnas began there collaboration already in 2002 when Marc Ducret joined the band « Toxikum » co-lead by Liudas Mockunas and Danish drummer Stefan Pasborg. In 2004 « Toxikum » was awarded « Danish Music Award » after that « Toxikum » was touring actively in 2004-2006 around Scandinavia, Baltic countries and France. At the same time Liudas Mockunas and Marc Ducret began playing as a duo and since playing together. In 2009 NoBusiness Records released there album « Silent Vociferation.
Marc Ducret is among today’s most original improvisers. Self-taught, extraordinarily gifted musician does not restrict himself to a particular style, writes distinctive and unexpected music – attacking with ferocious electric guitar outbursts or drifting into subtle impressionistic abstractions, resounding with rock hits or approaching post-bop, bursting into noise avalanches or playing with bits and pieces from the world of flamenco and classical music. One of the most unconventional guitarists empowered by acoustic and electric, bass and baritone guitars produces a unique sound, embracing all imaginable music forms.
Born in Paris in 1957 Marc Ducret began his professional career in 1975, playing bass in dance bands, rock and folk groups, accompanying singers and singing himself, and working as a studio musician. This experience was his ‘Alma Mater’. As a guitarist he debuted in 1986 playing with Patrice Caratini octet. The same year he became a member of the first French Orchestre National de Jazz, and formed his own trio, becoming a regular performer on the domestic and international concert and festival scene. The following year his trio recorded its debut album La Théorie du Pilier.
Marc Ducret soon gained recognition – he was awarded Django Reinghardt Prize in 1987, in 1988 and 1989 Jazz Hot magazine elected him the best French jazz guitarist, and in 1989 he was hailed as SACEM star. His career picked up and before long as a soloist he became much demanded abroad.
Since 1991, collaboration with American saxophonist Tim Berne brought Marc Ducret recognition in the motherland of jazz. He has since worked in a number of formations led by Tim Berne, including duo, Big Satan, Caos Totale and Bloodcount. Marc Ducret recoded several solo albums, released on T.Berne’s Screwgun label. A regular member of New York Factory, Marc Ducret today is one of the few European musicians regularly playing overseas.
