Alan Lechusza and Christopher Adler first met and established an improvising duo early in 2000, very soon after which they recorded their debut album Pleistocene. Committed to free improvisation that fully explores the musical experiences of both artists, the duo quickly established a musical presence in San Diego. The duo has formed the nucleus of many musical projects over the past half-decade, including the Christopher Adler Trio, Metal with Reeds…Reeds of Metal, Alan Lechusza’s Side A/Side B, The Yellow Chair Ensemble, and Iguana. Performing throughout Southern California, the duo has collaborated with performers including Gustavo Aguilar, Nina Eidsheim, Christopher Garcia, Nathan Hubbard and Scott Walton. For Lechusza and Adler (both active internationally as composers, repertoire performers and scholars) the duo has been an invaluable inspiration. Their collaboration has given rise to works such as Adler’s I Want to Believe and Song for a Form Carved by Water, and Lechusza’s The Underwear Conspiracy and As the Rain Comes.
