There are two principal ideas that form the concept of this album. First, the search for a resonance with pop-rock influence and sounds inspired by Jimi Hendrix (especially in track thirteen, “Are you sexperienced”). The second is a baroque vision found in the works of Sainte Colombe or Vivaldi in which the reproduction of nature expresses a hidden reality.

In the XXI century it is not the sound of little birds, but of legs in the air that we hear in a 45 minute suite. The different movements are entitled in a provocative fashion and indexed 1 – 21.

The bowing techniques in diagonal or circular movements, modes and creative play belong to contemporary music but also to classical and pop music as well. In spite of precise notation and relentless driving beats, we have kept moments for improvisation which accentuates the baroque framework of the ensemble.
