LP Duo – Between the Waves

LP Duo – Between the Waves is a musical collage that represents the search for the unknown through the creation of a new authentic sound on Duality Portable Hybrid Pianos, specially designed instruments by Sonja and Andrija during the pioneering Quantum Music project. As composers and performers, there are no boundaries between genres for the LP Duo. They explore a world where realities coexist without conflict. In that world, humanity and technology live in harmony despite all the challenges facing humans today. Hence together people, pianos, synthesizers and artificial intelligence, embraced in the musical dance of LP Duo.

LP DUO – Sonja Lončar, Andrija Pavlović

Since 2004, pianists, composers and innovators, Sonja Lončar and Andrija Pavlović, known in the music world as LP Duo, have been experimenting with the endless possibilities of playing on two pianos while developing a new approach to contemporary piano music. Since then, blurring the lines between genres, they have become one of the most authentic musical ensembles, performing an almost complete repertoire for two pianos as well as their original music. They received their doctorates at the Faculty of Music Art in Belgrade, and completed their Konzertexamen studies at the University of Music and Theater in Rostock (Germany). They have won over 30 awards at international music competitions and were announced as one of the 8 best world piano duos at the world’s largest competition Dranoff Miami Two Pianos in Miami (Florida) in 2008.

So far, they have successfully performed at the biggest festivals and concert halls such as Carnegie Hall New York, John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, Ars Electronica Linz, Sonar Barcelona, Meguro Persimmon Hall Tokyo, Music in PyeongChang (South Korea), as and on tours throughout Europe, USA and Asia.

LP Duo are exclusive artists of the Universal Music label, for whom they publish various recordings, among which the albums Duality (2019) and Dead Sea (2022) stand out. Some of the recordings from these albums were also selected by the renowned publishing house Deutsche Grammophon.

They compose music for theater, film, TV, dance choreography, visual art projects. One of their many alter egos is the LP Elektro project, while Andrija Pavlović is also active under the name of the Andy Pavlov project.

Sonja and Andrija are co-authors and leaders of the artistic and scientific project Beyond Quantum Music (2015-), which aims to explore the connection between music and science. In recent years they have been developing a completely new instrument – the Duality Portable Hybrid Piano. By adding special hardware to an acoustic piano, they connect it to a computer and manage to easily manipulate any digital sound, light or video, merging the worlds of acoustic and digital.

Sonja Lončar is an associate professor at the Faculty of Music in Belgrade, while Andrija Pavlović is an assistant professor at the studies of Scene Design, Faculty of Technical Sciences in Novi Sad.
