In my recent output, live electronic improvisation has conquered its space. It has been an exercise of rethinking presence on the stage through the machine, live body througn live code. Sound speculation in real time, the institution of a composer-performer-programer short-circuit. pó de marfim (2013) in one of these experiments, having an opera libretto and the empty space as raw materials. Done in colaboration with composer-performer  Marcela Lucatelli and presented April 13th 2013 in the NME12 concert.

With the help of Gilgameshivashtar she remembers that she is the embodiment of Oefro, Orfeo through the mirror. Has elephantiasis between her breasts, as a heart exposed outside. Naked. The ivory parts are so alien to the abstract game of chess as the hand that governs them."
