Violinist Satoko Fukuda and piano player Steve Beresford have been playing duos for quite a while now, but usually their performances happen three or four times in a year. Despite that, they seem to have developed a way to play which 'mesmerised' a well-known music writer.
Steve has been a central figure in the British improvising scene for over forty years, working with the likes of Derek Bailey, Evan Parker, Han Bennink, Christian Marclay and Alterations. Among many other recordings, Steve played with Rachel Musson and drummer Mike Caratti on a recent CD called 'Hesitantly Pleasant' and with David Toop’s group on the LP ‘Dirty Songs’. Satoko has performed worldwide as a classical violinist and also a free improviser. She’s on a beautiful CD by The Trio of Uncertainty, with Hannah Marshall and Veryan Weston, and regularly plays in another trio with Henry Lowther and John Russell. Moving fluidly beyond classical music, she is a regular guest performer at events such as the London Fashion Show, and the London Jazz Festival.
