Still Life v. II is the second scene of a large scale film opera. A representation of nature micro, macro and human elements, in a space without landmarks that becomes the stage, our surrounding, striped of the all opera theatrical connotations, and where the body is deliberately freed to move from diverse perceptional experiences and pleasures.The sonic and visual spaces become solid saturated and liquid, encircling our perceptions and stimuli. An immersion into a digitalised out-of sync and in-natural territory, partly abstract, recognizable or unknown, eloquently visionary.
Still Life is dedicated to Claudio Abbado, in Memoriam.

Discombobulator is a fantastical solo set against evolving projections of a negleted Venetian façade. The dance triggers, in real-time, live electronic composition and computer-generated imagery. This media interplay explores the ultimately insurmountable separation between the physical presence of the body and the imaginative possibilities of virtual reality.
