"It seemed better to write music that nobody knew anything about."
Terry Riley

In the history of music, there were several periods in which aesthetic and compositional reduction was the centre of artistic creation. With this programme we move between times and sound spaces, driven by the hypnotic power and the continuous pulse of repetition.

Inspired by its anti-hierarchical spirit, which emerged as a reflection of the political awakening in the 1960s, we expand the concept of "minimal music" and combine compositions from different epochs into a sound parcours completely free of hierarchy: we combine the classic by Terry Riley with our own compositions, live electronics, choral works from the Renaissance and today and filigree melodies of oriental music.
