The process of creating a solo performance was triggered by my interest in 2 things: approaching time in all its “layering” and “playing the piano” on the drums. This music crystallized itself in the form of small containers, various folds and some dirt.

I try to see the body and memory as an environment, to generate implicit or imaginary melodies, to see ambiguity or ambivalence as a source of playfulness. And, instead of analyzing “where” to believe in, observe the feeling of belief / trust itself.
In the case of this solo, I was mainly inspired by philosophy and films, more than by musical sources. But wherever it comes from, at the end everything merges again into a kind of angular, interval and watery musical flow.
