Having met a few years ago whilst studying electronic music at IRCAM in Paris, Dane Anders Bach and Australian Anthony Lyons have built an on-going collaboration called the Bach/Lyons Project. They develop their ideas through internet and meeting, playing and performing when they can. They most recently met and worked on a series of compositions in Copenhagen in September 2011 during a busy but very rewarding week of rehearsals, recordings and performances. This will be followed by further development and performances of their work scheduled towards the end of 2012. You can read a little more about the project below from their 2011 Danish press release.

September 2011 will see Dane Anders Bach and Australian Anthony Lyons, both composers and multi-instrumentalists, team up in a series of performances that explore each others solo works, as well as the presentation of new collaborative compositions written throughout the Summer of 2011. The pervading tone of the duo's music is contemporary electro/acoustic classical, heavily influenced by the electronic and indie music scene - an experimental, ambient universe meets fully composed sections for strings, brass, guitar, percussion and electronics.  The Bach/Lyons Project's broad ranging melodic approach and musical expression engages a full spectrum of listeners, tweaking the ears of electronic and left-field pop enthusiasts through to lovers of modern classical music.


I september 2011 vil danske Anders Bach og australske Anthony Lyons, begge komponister og multiinstrumentalister, slå sig sammen i en række koncerter, der både vil udforske hver deres individuelle kompositioner samt uropførelser af stykker skrevet sammen over sommeren 2011. Den gennemgående musikalske tone er moderne klassisk elektro/akustisk under stor indflydelse af indie og elektronisk musik – et eksperimentelt ambient univers møder fuldt komponerede sektioner for strygere, messingblæs, guitar, slagtøj og elektronik. Bach/Lyons projektets stærkt melodiske atmosfære og musikalske udtryk imødekommer et bredt spektrum af lyttere, der bevæger både det elektroniske og poppede øre, men også den moderne klassiske musiks pulserende hjerte.
