Original soundtrack created for Henna Kaikula’s spectacular visual performance in Polverigi, Italy.
Jake Cartwright joined us along with set designer Jegi Pekkala in residence at Inteatro’s Villa Nappi in Polverigi, on the Adriatic coast in Italy. In the two month 2008 residence we created a performance based around Henna’s breathtaking handstand and contortion acrobatics. All the music was composed and recorded on site by Jake and Me. As well as the set, Jegi created a vast array of video imagery which he triggered and tweaked live during the show behind and in front of Henna’s movements.

Then set up two microphones on a friend’s piano in Prague and improvised in a Romantic style on a B flat minor sequence. If only they were horses on the cobblestones outside and not car after car. Continue reading Reflections from a time long passed. ‘SPEGLINGAR’
