SPORES (2017)

This piece is inspired by the explosive clouds of microscopic spores that certain plants can produce.

At first, it takes the form of a wandering through the dust, from which emerge energies of blind violence that gradually invade the whole space.

It is also inspired by strange impressions of my daily life, written against the background noise of the deaf and indifferent city.
