Dume (Otisto23) gave me this promo CD after the concert presented in Festival Medi@rte. The music I had heard before the presentation were all online versions I searched in Google. We met the same day of the presentation at the theater to do the set up, get loose and do the concert, while a tremendous storm was out there in the city during the whole evening.


Once my participation with the musicians was confirmed through a series of emails between Otisto and myself, who had been previously vitrtually presented by José Manuel Blanco the Cultural Director of Alizanza Francesa de Monterrey. I read about their creative process behind every song in the LP, which they describe all in internet.
This gave me a start in my creative visual process too, and to use the live camera  to record a digital image of Laurent de Wilde´s hands on the piano, this to introduce the organic element in the visuals. And then as the song is lively being created from scratch  and digitally manipulated, the visuals deconstructs the images into somehing else, and they developt as the song does with improvisation.

This is the playlist, by Laurent de Wilde handwriting on my sketch book, where I had already wrote some visual ideas for the all the songs.
