Being invited to play at Flussi for the second time in three years is a deep pleasure, connected to both the human and musical sides of myself.
Flussi is certainly one of the major music and media arts festival in Europe; 36 Artists from all over the world performing on three different stages, workshops, installations, lectures and more; all being hosted by an amazing organization made possible thanks to the sensitivity and care of a very active and generous group of lovely humans.
Through them Avellino town is able to express an impressive uniqueness.
Last summer, Stefano Moretti – aka Sender – invited Flos ( me and Stefano Castagna) to join him to produce an album which could blend his electronic identity with Flos’ organic one.
Everything started with a long session made at Ritmo & Blu magic studio.
After that both the producers Stefano Moretti and Stefano Castagna have gone through a very deep and detailed post production.
Their ability to join in such a strange production impressed me immensely.
Blending pure electronics, intuitive improvisation, found sounds, raw and primitive timbres all together to generate a readable and structured music has rarely offered me such a spontaneous, fluid and natural result.
It’s been a honor to work with these two great producers.
Alicante Loop Festival has been a great time for us. We could also test the beautiful video cut by Andrea Ponzoni out of Aldo Grazzi’s artwork.
Playing with those forms floating in the background has been a surprising and inspiring experience.
As you can see from the picture the stage was pretty crowded by other performers’ gear ( you can see Kurt Rosenwilkel’s set up in the foreground), even in such a tight situation, stage management has been astounding.
So the organizer, the venue and the passionate public.
And the place… Alicante sky, sea, and food !
