Sacred Shadows was created in 2002 as a multimedia show: the inspiration had come suddenly two
years previously, in a small remote village on the magical island of Bali, evoked by images of candlelit
dancers, accompanied by the hypnotic sweet sounds of the Gamelan. The theater of shadows, ritual
masks and dances is woven together in an intricate web of the supernatural and down-to-earth daily
routine.Sacred Shadows try to recreates the experience, integrating various rare images (filmed by
myself) in my travels around the world) with the hypnotism of the minimal music (born in the ‘30s
from the Balinese music), the entrancing sounds of the magical Gamelan and the natural atmosphere
of the performance space.The pulsating heart of the show is the Gamelan orchestra along with reeds,
violin, keyboards and percussion providing a link with Western tradition, resulting in a singular sound
experience, like small tributaries flowing into a grand musical river.
In the live show, images of temples, deserts, seas, forests and ancient cities are syncedto the music in a
flow of colors and textures.
But, as we can hear on this album, this musical experience speaks for itself: with this project,
I hope to build a bridge between the Gamelan music and my own style, weaving two sounds and two
souls in an unique composition.
