Ako Amo is a composition and performance project by pianist Olivia Zaugg and electronic musician Martin Reck. By reducing and contouring melodic molecules and modulating the perception of time, the duo arrives at an aesthetic of guided slowness.
The compositions are created on the piano and "Segment Assembler" - an electronic instrument developed for this project. Early digital electronics and acoustic grand piano, piano processing and sensitive sound design make up the Ako Amo sound.
The debut album will be released in late summer 2024.
