Nouvelle vidéo : Silvan Joray "The Journey"

In November 2020, I had the chance to join an ensemble led by the great Swiss guitar player Silvan Joray for a couple of shows at Theater Basel in a music series currated by the Basel Musik Hochschule. This almost totally improvised and multi-artistic performance entilted "The Journey" pictures the evolution of two human beings into a supposed post apocalyptic world.
