DRiP is multi-instrumentalist Daniel Rico’s first solo project, in collaboration with visual artist Astrid Steiner (luma.launisch.at). With DRiP, Daniel presents his original compositions live on piano and drums complemented by video projections of prerecorded footage of himself playing. The imagery allows the audience to experience a 'band performance” by a single individual. In late 2022 Danny will release the music from this show and more on an album entitled "Artificial Anus".
On stage, Daniel switches from piano to drums in the blink of an eye. On video he takes you out on a journey where the drums and piano can be found on fields, cities, forests and mountains. The pair met in their adopted home city of London. Filmed throughout 2017 the material was largely shot in England, Portugal and Austria and subsequently cinematographically edited by Astrid.
The most recent DRiP Show - on 12 February 2020 at Lisbon's wonderful Teatro Nacional de São Carlos as part of the Antena 2 Festival.
