  1. Since 1997 Adriana Montorfano, flute and Cecilia Arditto, composition (both originally from Argentina), work together in projects which explore the relationship between sound, image, objects, movement and architecture. All of them with a strong emphasis in music notation. 

  2. From an academic music background, the chamber music not only ask for instrumental extended techniques, but for an extended ensemble which includes dance, magic lanterns, objects and the space around. The goal is to find “an expanded language where not only the sound but the movement and the space “sings”. We like to think that in our work, all disciplines come together into the heart of music, being music not only an artistic cathegory but a way to understand the world.
