The Passepartout Duo are pianist and keyboardist Nicoletta Favari and drummer/percussionist Christopher Salvito.  For such a minimal setup, they manage to put together a sound that is cinematic in scope.  There are elements of contemporary classical music, but a bit of jazz slides in there as well.  Quite a profound release from them.

As an aside, the artwork was made by a Chinese company, as the Bandcamp website indicates:

This item is produced in China by the arts organization AnyOne Workspace, and all the proceeds from this sale go to the artists Yannis Zhang and Yumo Wu.

Though the limited edition set is a bit out of my price range, it’s going to a worthy cause.  As someone who is currently residing in Beijing, it’s good to see local artists collaborating worldwide.  There is a wealth of talent locally, and they need exposure.
