> " Here an excerpt from the set that my friend Rhys Chatham and I played in a workshop at the Galerie 0fr, in Paris the 20 of November 2015, <
exactly one week after the attacks of the Bataclan. It was a very strange and intense moment, led by the need to conjure through a kind of ritual
the feeling of sadness that invaded Paris (and our hearts). Music exists for this, it's a Magickal act that can appease and intensify
all the energies circulating in our entire being, to open and create other tangible dimensions of enlightenment." N.G.
