Equinox Gardens

This proposal leads us to a round trip between improvisation, contemporary music writing and contemporary African urban sounds, inspired by the theme of the equinoxes. During the equinox, day and night divide exactly the two hemispheres and from the North Pole to the South Pole, all the points of a Meridian simultaneously receive the sunlight during the day. The elements that form day, night, time, duration, and the passage from one luminosity to another, are being used as elements of the compositions and live improvisations.
