Systems. Everything is about systems.

Ourself is one of them. Behind his magnificent body hides the hidden universe of interconnected machinery. The brain of a kilo two hundred grams is one of the most complex material than has been discovered in the universe .We are like that: we learn, we automatize and then there is no need to think. But the emotions are there with us all the time.
The abstraction and the concrete. Rithm can make you feel something . We have our own rhyhm but somebody can surprise you if it goes out of your patern.”


Parts of this duet appears in the short movie called “TimeCode” which won La Palma de Oro in Cannes, a Goya a Gaudí and many other prices and was nominated at the Oscars.
