The idea of an electro-acoustic duo that played the repertoire of Peppesmith was born almost by chance and from the chance meeting between the two musicians, an intent that soon after turned into an advancement of the rapidly expanding project consolidated in the version DuopuntoZero.
The Peppesmith DuopuntoZero version is extendable and open as in the case of the Trio in Avellino constituted for the occasion and which demonstrates the potential of the project and the further opening of the training to subsequent and future collaborations in line with the spirit of the Peppesmith network.
