“Senja” is an electronic ambient music EP composed during the winter months far north in the Arctic Circle. The album was produced using field recordings, synthesizers and samples inspired by the story of Kråkeslottet, an old fishing plant transformed in a cultural hub in the island of Senja, Norway.

A journey through a digital landscape where structures come to life and evolve in an endless continuum. Modal harmonies, pulsing synths and oniric soundscapes create a careful balance between organic and digital textures. Polymers is a reflection on interpersonal relations.

“Después de todo” (2016)
Buenos Aires siglo XXI, posibilidad de un tango sin tiempo. Sonido melancólico y danza nocturna, sociedad explosiva. Expresión del mundo contemporáneo. Aceptar la necesidad de experimentar, incorporar materiales, formas y sonoridades todavía no codificadas en la tradición, en busca de una realidad sonora atada a Buenos Aires y a la intimidad de nuestras vidas.
Piece for dance and live music. Work in progress.
“Aldeas means "Cities", or "Villages', in Spanish. This work explores my favourite subject: the process of transformation which happens to us, 'global citizens' - as we leave our families, home towns, move to different places, absorb new influences, become part of new communities, develop new identities and become 'something else' - and in that, also become our new true selves... This piece was created by artists from 5 different countries - we all met in Berlin :)”

BASIC is Berlin-based duo Maddalena Zampitelli and Juan Pablo de Lucca. They create worlds using every-day technology, ranging from the introspective and calm to the pleasant and sour. BASIC explores different aesthetics and uses live improvisation to create -each time - a new performance.
The four pieces of “Senja” were composed during an artistic residency far north of the Arctic Circle. The music depicts the sempiternal sea, the darkness during the winter months, and the stories and the people that live on the island of Senja, north of Norway. The footage was filmed on the island. The result is a short story about nature and our capacity to observe.
