My  first  inspiration  to  produce  a   continuous  sound  with  a  percussive  instrument  evolved   through  an investigative  process  of  the  acoustic  qualities  of  the  performance   space.   I  picking  out  various   objects  and  implements  over  travels  tours, and  in working  residency  I  have  adapted  this  piece  to  be  played on a  large  drum, which  is used as  a  acoustic  amplifier. I develop an intimate affinity with the materials  in  vibration.  I  have  to  evaluate  these  vibrations  in  my  body  at  different  levels, to  be able  to  coordinate  my  postures and movements,  but also  like the archer with Kyudo,  tuned the mind to it. For give life to these vibrations I have used, since 2008, an dextrocentrique circumambulation. These sounds are often compared  to certain  sounds  produced by synthesizers but also to the magnitude that an orchestra can. However, these sounds depends of the reflective quality of surrounding surfaces, and on the volume of the performance space itself.
These sounds have unusual sonic textures, they escape traditional percussion registers. They test the limits of our perception,  from infra to ultrasonic, by playing  phase shifts. They insert themselves  into the intimacy  of  matter, through  micro vibration, and we are presented  with an audio saturation by noise density. The flow of these evokes both restraint and excess, immersion and timelessness.

It is not a concert, it is not a performance, it is not a sound massage; it is not drone music, it’s not noisy or improvised or contemporary; it’s not a circus act or a choreography; it’s not a satanic ritual, or a photo or video shoot for your smartphones or your electronic stuff.
It’s “No Es” and that can only be beyond your comprehension.

Workshop: “Um passo al vazio”
13 february 2023 (time to be defined)
This an flexible workshop, open to everyone for one afternoon or more.
We are the authors of the world we perceive. Our reality exists only through consciousness, and consciousness would be vibration.  To create is to recreate,  creation can be an interpretation of vision. Vision is a burst of consciousness. I use an simple educational path that carries out a permanent back and forth between perception and interpretation through transmission. From listening to drawing and from drawing to sound. A tool that stimulates the cognitive functions of the  participants at different levels, and to question their visions, to be able to compare them, to see them evolve through the filter of the personalities, until the moment of their return to their initiator.  It will also be an introduction to collective improvisation.
These moments of participatory sharing and exploration are marked by points of exchange, insight and learning. I prefer to ask the participants to have attended one of my sound actions before the workshop, I consider this moment as the first step on this path where, for a few hours, we will walk together.
An energy dedicated to the emergence of the possible void. The matter to be heard, would be a long hissing, until the massive pounding; like the inertia of a wheel compressing the bodies and the spirits, to dilute the thickness of a density of a hollow.
