Thinking about the body and reflecting on the sound I heard vibrate naturally within me a point of physical contact, emotional and full of energy, sensuality. We know that the human body is itself a physical body, intellectual and spiritual that is the sound with its own language.
But even more it is the extension, celebrates it and back to life each time; every time, just like a sacred ceremony.
The musician who composes and shapes the sound does the same.
I strongly felt the dreamlike and symbolic value that assumes the body in relation to sound and vice versa. It takes a symbiosis that drives the change, a transformation of life itself; and this step, this awareness is made possible thanks to the courage of profaning, dig, break up and then find a possible direction.
Bring to light a piece of truth or knowledge, the fruit of research and between soul and body touch, sound and form, life and substance of things. Pollution is desecration. It is the positive way to break for a moment the limits and bring into the stage the essence of the meeting: Body and Sound.

In the ’80s founds On Raku, research laboratory on languages and sounds in which are experimented structures and new ways of creation concerning the relationship between human, media and technology. It grows a constant focus to the possibility of combination of the code, including the distinctive and transversal elements which it is composed and the potential dynamic and creative in the realization of an event. The research areas are directed more and more to that of the visual and sound art. Begins a careful study on the relationships between phonemes, signs, perception and environment in a holistic way and minimalist.
