Recorded in Barcelona during a tumultuous political period, Stonebeads draws from the turmoil affecting the personal sphere and the contrasting landscape of a buzzing city surrounded by a soothing nature.
With a bright intro distinguished by an ascending synth sound, the track immediately defines itself as a gentle invocation for bliss, setting an harmonic tone that stands firmly in between tranquility and playfulness.
The conflict starts when the bass line kicks in, consistently thumping side by side the sparse but steady beats.
While the middle of the composition invokes a feeling of hesitation, the ending confirms the overall sense of elation, leaving behind a glaring echo of distant notes.

Untitled #7 is an auditory incident and a compositional experiment where movements and sounds interact with one another, yet following a disjointed and irrational procedure. Each tone of the composition is associated to a gesture of the dancer, every chord is linked to a portion of her body, creating somehow a cohesive and harmonic piece, unforced and unpremeditated.

Space as absence, expectation and what’s beyond the terrestrial: Ritmiche has its foundations laying on the misconceived immateriality of silence.
The common element in the rhythm pattern for each composition appears to be a hesitant sound, either in the form of a beat or light scratch, as a step back before the next sonic wave. The end result is a dance with no rehearsed choreography, yet far for improvisational.
Carefully assembled with a series of elements taken from noise recordings, the production pushes the natural notes to the realm of the ethereal, removing the boundaries between genres while stretching the gaps. The intervals become essential, the pause a fundamental part of the pace.
