Duo Solvtio
South of the Border
Producer: André van Rensburg
Number of discs: 1

Duo SOLVTIO is a project by South African composers André van Rensburg and Franco Prinsloo. Their haunting performances together has often been described as leaving the audience in an altered state, sometimes for days. On this particular album a broken piano (its entire front, including the keys, had been removed) was played using mallets, guitar strings, chairs and various other found objects. Added to this was the enigmatic violin and viola playing of Waldo Alexander.
