Become Your Own Patron with David Smith

Is right now the best time in history to be making music? Passepartout Duo discusses who they are, what they do, and what it means to be an independent artist making music in 2019.

About Passepartout Duo

Ever since they began collaborating in 2015, the musicians of Passepartout Duo have sought to revitalize the forms and practice of contemporary music through immersive events, interpretive music videos, and interdisciplinary projects that emphasize blurring cultural and aesthetic borders.

Striving to be catalysts for the global mobility of art and artists, Nicoletta Favari (piano) & Christopher Salvito (percussion) have taken the works of emerging and established composers all over the world. They complement the existing and commissioned repertoire with their own original compositions often taking inspiration from their travels. Creating films that document their interpretations and compositions, they seek to showcase contemporary classical music in accessible formats through online videos


Sounding Now is a festival of contemporary music that brings together divergent contemporary practices – composition, electronic music, installation, and improvisation – with the goal connecting people of different artistic communities - both listeners and practitioners - in order to explore the ways their shared interests intersect.
