My thought is sound and with the sound can create chaos.
The sound for me is a pure element, which allows you to reach a level of sensory communication, which once denied understanding, aseptic and superficial, the listener can explore their own paradigms of interpretation. Enjoy the chaos, enjoy the sound, also it means discovering weakness, take contact with the intimacy.
The sound action, the time of execution, must be for those who take part (interpreters or public) a ritual, the confluence of all their energy, you have to pushing the limits and use the maximum of human potential.

The trust to an ideal of chaos allows me to create moments that my spirit perceives like energy; emotional states that can be shared and that influence in some way the experience of life, life understood as both spiritual and material.

In the chaos we have all the resources we need, in an order invisible but extremely accurate, the chaos not for me the casuality.
This energy state attracts all my admiration and the sound is for me the key to get into it, discover it and live it.
