An experimental sound installation accompanied by live visuals at the ICA, fusing the meditative cello improvisations of Tre Voci and the thrilling Iranian drumming of Berlin-based tombak player Mohammad Reza Mortazavi, described as "the best hand-drummer worldwide" (ORF).
Immerse yourself in the plethora of sounds slowly orbiting the audience in the first half, before hearing Mohammad Reza Mortazavi and his mesmerisingly fast drumming, bringing the programme to an ecstatic close.
"Watching the unbelievably virtuos soloist, one could get the impression he does not have two but at least six hands." (ARTE)
