Les Frères Méduses translates into English as “The Jellyfish Brothers”, a name carefully chosen by classical guitarists Benoît Albert and Randall Avers to describe the quality of their collaborations. Albert and Avers agreed that the connotation of free flowing water, surrealism, and a bit of humor suited the music that they create together.
The French adjective médusé also translates to “mesmerized” or “dumbfounded”, the perfect words to describe the feelings elicited by this sensational guitar duo’s music. Albert and Avers both exhibit a formal education in classical guitar performance, composition and improvisation, and their combined skill will certainly leave you breathless. Aside from performing classical guitar music together, the duo has also written original film scores for silent films such as 1927’s The Unknown.
