On May 9th I performed live at Further_In.live, a website set up by my dear friend Ruaridh Law / TVO who also runs Broken20 to create a platform for audio and visual artists to perform during COVID-19

As with most of my recent music and performances, also with this performance, I pursue an experience in which the listener is submerged by the sound in such a way the essence of time and space is forgotten.

The performance was fully improvised with various synthesizers, a philicorda organ, a mixer and various effects leaving a chance for "imperfections" which I think we should embrace, also in our daily life.

This is one of my purest and most minimalist works so far, and I am really happy I can share this experience with you.
