The music that the listener has in hands, captured and recorded in two live performances, Paris and Lisbon, was played with a 1968 Gibson ES-340 Guitar (in Luis Lopes words: “A magic guitar that sings an enormous and generous spectrum of frequencies”), connected in stereo to serve a two-channel circuit, two voices, each powered by a chosen sequence of analogue pedals that attack two Full Tube amplifiers at maximum volume.

However, in full awareness that this music could later be heard at any volume! This installation goes back to the guitar as a pure and raw electro-acoustic instrument, and an immediate and intuitive relationship with music based on a hybrid concept of the term "composition" under an assumed concrete formula that challenges the notion of time and tuning, an omni-tonal, omni-metrical, and omni-rhythmic construction, with chaotic and dynamic polyphonies, that's what matters here!
