Sonic Calligraphy Duo
Peggy Chew, vocals
Adrian Frey, piano
"Sonic Calligraphy" evokes a musical landscape where old Chinese melodies are heard together with contemporary sounds. Traditional tunes meet with modern modal colors and other shapes to create a new ambience.
Classically trained pianist and composer Adrian Frey is a musician whose wide scope of activities range from jazz and Latin to experimental music.
His first encounters with jazz and improvisation during his childhood led to concerts as a teenager and at the age of 19, he performed at the Zurich Jazz Festival.
After receiving a degree from the Conservatory in Zurich, Adrian studied at the New England Conservatory in Boston, USA. His teachers included pioneering voices of jazz such as pianist Ran Blake, composer George Russell, drummer Bob Moses and saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi. They influenced Adrian's dedication to creating his own musical language.
Peggy Chew is the American born child of Chinese immigrants and grew up near New York City. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Studies at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut (USA), she decided to follow a path in music.
She studied jazz vocals with leading American jazz singers such as: Anne Marie Moss (Manhattan School of Music), Bob Stoloff (Berklee College of Music), Norma Winstone, Lauren Newton. Lessons with the innovative jazz singer Jay Clayton inspired Peggy to explore her individual sound.
