'String Figures' is an ongoing trans-global art project fusing electronic sound, ethnomusicological research, video art and choreography into a rich audiovisual tapestry that collapses worlds, histories and timeframes. Released on SVS Records in March 2018 with a series of films directed by Alessandra Leone, the album explores an array of dualities - traditional/contemporary, organic/electronic, historical/futuristic - with its core theme of string as one of the most ancient and playful art forms with seemingly infinite possibilities.
