Everything started from creative improvisation and from the sound research of the two artists: free, immersive improvisations with extended guitar, live electronics and concrete sounds.
The audience is transported in a unique and unrepeatable sound stream.
An exploration that unites listeners and musicians in a mysterious journey; a door that the sound will open in search of hidden music.
The emotional states of the listeners lead the exploration.
This experience generated a new album which collects excerpts from the “A mano A mano” concert, performed on 4th august 2019 at Museo Civico Bodini, in Gemonio Varese IT.
It was a public performance in the museum cloister, during the finissage of Samuele Arcangioli’s exhibition “A mano A mano”.
