I use a long-string (usually between 5 and 6 meters long) as an instrument and to filter and amplify other sources. I use a magnetic pickup and no effects.
I developed this instrument and music for a theatre work and then I continued to experiment and composing music for it. I found a lot of different ways to produce sound playing the string with different tools from violin bow to other things I create and build by myself, or to amplify other sources and objects, using the string as a filter, adding new dimensions and effects to simple elements. My way of playing it’s mixed between composition and improvisation, my compositions are open to keep the possibility of following what is happening in the moment in different places and spaces. For my work the focus is on the connection between body, sound and space, looking for something new every time.
