CLOUD LUDUM (“ludum” [Latin] – game or play) is an ensemble led by Anastasiya Dumma and Olga Karaseva. CLOUD LUDUM performs in a style that could be defined as "third stream" – a blend of contemporary classical music with jazz and free improvisation. The repertoire of the ensemble includes compositions by Bela Bartok, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Leo Brouwer and other XX century classical composers as well as contemporary jazz and third-stream pieces. CLOUD LUDUM experiments a lot with various kinds of improvisation ranging from classical variations to blowing over jazz changes to modal jazz solos to free collective improvisation. All pieces are arranged or composed specially for CLOUD LUDUM by Olga Karaseva. The group was formed in 2010 and consists of the finest Berklee, NEC and Boston Conservatory alumni.
