Rockeys duo, taking its name from the majestic Rocky Mountains of Canada, is a unique collaboration between harpsichordist Katelyn Clark (Montréal) and pianist Luciane Cardassi (Banff). Exploring the unexpected combination of piano, harpsichord and electronics, the duo seeks to discover the possibilities of their keyboard instruments through performance, improvisation, and commissioning new works. After meeting at the Banff Centre during several artist residencies, the duo gradually took shape through the performance of Louis Andriessen’s Dubbelspoor. This successful collaboration led to the duo’s current project of commissioning a series of new works for harpsichord, piano and electronics by Canadian composers, including Brocade by Linda Catlin Smith, funded through the Canada Council for the Arts.
