SpectroDuo is an experimental electronic and electro-acoustic music project started by Martyna Kosecka (pianist, composer, orchestra conductor from Poland) and Idin Samimi Mofakham (composer, musicologist, sound artist from Iran). SpectroDuo, many times with accompaniment of invited by them guest musicians, experiments with so called computer music as a main medium of musical speech or in connection to traditional instruments. In their performances artists often go beyond sound source and use various inter media solutions.
Some of their successful projects are: NOISY night Electroacoustic (Iran 2014) with
a CD publication through Audiomat Label/Poland; Procyon Electronic music project completed during residency at Visby Composers Union (Sweden 2014) or Noisy Good Morning Graz, performed during IMPULS Music Festival (Austria 2015).
