“The Guitar machine” musical duo
Billy Pavia acoustic guitarist,
Valerio Pavia Classical and Acoustic guitars,
The kind that we present, can be translated as “Smooth Middle Jazz”.
It is a kind affiliated to jazz, but cleared of harmonic complexity. It consists in the choice and elaboration of celebrated songs like Swing - Jazz.
"The Guitar Machine" offers a repertoire that has its roots in the Gypsy Music; In particular they propose a musical performance generated by various musical influences, enriched by a relentless rhythm and movement and fast passages of notes resembling the fiery "Rasgueado".
The duo has performed around the south of France (Provance) in July 2013 and performed on the streets of Europe 's. The freedom of interpretation understood in the broadest sense of the term is the main feature of the project of "the Guitar Machine", they not only offer an excellent contemporary jazz sound, but an expressive technique which is a lively ferment of quality choices, a research lab "read" as a result of profound reflections on the changes and the determination of a Jazzy sound more personal and eclectic, ranging from the Swing across Manouche, Gipsy music , tango and creating a path brilliant and staff in the world of jazz music.
Billy Pavia, 50, is a purely classical guitarist of extreme clarity of thought and clarity of how.
His first approach to the instrument and the music starts at 8 years self-taught. Later approaches to classical studies that will lead him to a special focus on "clean touch" on the guitar. He soon joined the interest in jazz, discovering new music meanders through a research activity in this area that led him to create a personal style of improvisation.
It is always flexible, expressive, powerful, and it is always characterized by a phrasing really clean, stylish, and inspired by the Gypsy Manouche tradition, all with a perfect mastery of the instrument.
Valerio Pavia 18 year old, classical guitarist who also plays semi-acoustic guitar, always hungry for new sounds, counterpoints, changes in steps of rhythmic and melodic. His identity as a musician expresses itself in a search for rigor and inventiveness and can be summed up in a very personal and rhetorical sensitivity of the play, with the ability to adapt to any style of music while maintaining his strong musical personality. His performances are characterized by a way of running with a peculiar technique of improvisation outside the box, than the "classic" way of understanding the tool.
