Dimecres de so i cos DA ROCHA UM (hybrid set)
DA ROCHA UM will perform a hybrid set between pieces of his own creation, unpublished compositions and unfinished fragments together with pieces by contemporary artists in a fractional mix. A process of continuous contraction and liberation between the rhythmic and contemplation, the industrial and the organic, the abrasive and the subtle.
