Radical Cycle

Musical brothers Sageev and Dani Oore together again for the very first time.



The simplest explanation for Radical Cycle is that the duo---comprised of legendary Haligonian musical brothers Sageev and Dani Oore---creates acoustic "remixes" of classical works. Or, in the words of Sageev: "We took individual art songs by different composers, and reconstructed them into new compositions. No songs were harmed in the process." The project was born from repeated forays into classical songbooks, and as the brothers played and replayed songs by Brahms, Schubert and others, additional elements of their shared backgrounds began bleeding into the mix---a hint of klezmer here, a moment of harmonic improvisation there. The result is a beautiful and gently experimental collection of songs, and marks the pair's first recording as a duo. Audiences in Toronto and Halifax will soon enjoy these renditions live, with concerts due in October 2012 and early 2013.
