about

This is a duet with the cosmos.
At one side there is a cosmic rays detector that counts and analyses the data of incoming muons. Muons particles are created by high atmosphere collisions between air atoms and high energy particles coming from outer space. This data controls a Endorphin.es modular synthesizer.

At the other side, I play a reproduction of an Ancient Greek Kithara made by Luthieros.com, processed with electronic treatments.
The result is a dreamy counterpoint between the universe and man.
A dialogue between nuclear physics and lutherie, between antiquity and contemporary, in search for the harmony of the spheres.
