“Identitats” is a solo multimedia performance, my most ambitious attempt and so far the most personal and risky project I have ever presented. The works that form this one hour recital, hybrids of composition and improvisation and with an extensive use of live electronics and live audiovisual effects, have been created during the last year and a half in Zürich and reflect my personal evolution during this period as a musician and as an artist.
“Identitats” is an unfinished work of research and of constant self-discoveriment. The pieces, which explore the most extreme and unconventional possibilities of the saxophone playing, amplified and enriched by the use of electronic processes, portray my own way of und...erstanding the instrument and define a very personal musical and instrumental language, resulting in the creation of new voices and multiple identities from the same instrument.
“Identitats” is an attempt to blur the limits in between instrumentalist and composer, in between composition and improvisation, in between sound and image, to explore the multiple identities of the performer, the instrument, and of the recital experience through an intimate way of expression.
