We are passionate about music performance, and we work with creative professionals in conceiving imaginative videos that show the art of playing an instrument under a new light. Our workcombines low- and high-tech tools to a heightened sense of the craftmanship involved in music-making, resulting in creations that show the beauty of music performance in a unique way.

Marés was commissioned by the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and recorded at the Sala Brasil of the Embassy of Brazil in London.

Mā is the result of a collaboration with the Chinese composer Sun Keting. In Japanese, the concept of mā refers to the perception of space, a gap or interval, the space in between. This powerful idea, together with explorations on the concepts of 'emptiness', resulted in this superb, challenging, and unique work for solo guitar. This video is an exploration of the aesthetic concepts of the work, guided only by the concept itself and the performative gestures.
