Music can be described as electronic classical music that utilizes deep, floating synths and waves of chord progressions, which may be accompanied by echoing rhythmic textures, airy, choir - like synth tones or ancient sounds of the Japanese harp (koto). The project differs from the typical classical concert formula. Roshko brothers go beyond the baroque classical music at the least expected moment to show their own musical ideas. Our goal was to create a project that blends baroque composition written by such composers as: J. S. Bach or J. Albrechtsberger with our own compositions for violin, cello, piano, sansula, loops/electronics and kotamo. Barox is a concert that can’t be determined by exchanging only one style of music. It combines electronic sounds with world music and slavic melancholy.
