It is a musical scheme whose historical life begins in the last years of 1970 with the development of “Halki Collective” quartet which consists of musicians from Halki, a village near Larissa. From 1978 until 1985 they play in many Greek cities as a quartet but they have also come in cooperation with other musicians who have as a particular musical object the free and structured improvisation. Their record “ HALKI COLLECTIVE” has been sent around and they have participated in the record “ SOUNDS OF WINTER “ .
The two musicians play together as a duo since 1987.
During 1994 they produce their record “ SOUND SCENES “. The pieces of the record and the specific musical tone that it expresses have been developed in the beginning of 1992, when they made an effort to find out a new musical identity and reset the musical expression of Arc duo members.
The musical stuff, part of which is in this record is created after improvisations during musical meetings which are recorded and elaborated until they get an almost stable shape.
Influences are received by the international music’s spectrum. The procedure, from the first conception , performance, elaborations and last form of the pieces moves around the axis of creating imaginative pictures which is achieved through a game of the real and the imaginative side of the two musicians with in a continuous passing from the conscious to the subconscious .
The main support for these musical acts, the use of the “arc” musical instruments, double bass and violin, and the intense emotional changes that have the ability to create, but also the will for communication among the musicians, in the first place by personal feelings and also by the need for musical expression with an alternative music without compromise, free but well structured.

Η μουσική του ARC DUO μια συνεχής συζήτηση του κάθε οργάνου με τον εαυτό του αλλά και των οργάνων μεταξύ τους, σε μια προσπάθεια ανεύρεσης μιας τελικής εκφοράς αυτού του εσωτερικού λόγου που ενυπάρχει στον κάθε δημιουργό, των εσωτερικών φωνών που ζητάνε διέξοδο σε μια προσπάθεια δημιουργίας συνδετικών ιστών ανάμεσα στο παρελθόν και το μέλλον.

Η μουσική τους είναι ένα κράμα παραδοσιακών και σύγχρονων ακουσμάτων, δομημένης και ελεύθερης φόρμας, ελεύθερου αλλά και ιδιωματικού αυτοσχεδιασμού. Μια μουσική που χαρακτηρίζεται από την προσπάθεια των εσωτερικών φωνών να βρούνε διέξοδο δημιουργώντας συνδετικούς ιστούς ανάμεσα στο παρελθόν και το μέλλον. Μια μουσική που χαρακτηρίζεται από την δυναμική, τις ρυθμικές εναλλαγές και τις μελωδικές παρεμβάσεις, τον αλληλοεπηρεασμό και τη διάθεση επικοινωνίας που εκφράζεται μέσα από την ιδιαίτερη φωνή των δύο τοξοτών οργάνων - βιολί και κοντραμπάσο - από τα οποία έρχεται βέβαια και το όνομα του σχήματος .
